Coming from R1 Wurks are their new laydown fan shrouds for Team Associated’s 6.1 series of off-road vehicles. Specifically developed the fan mounts are a drop fit foe the specific vehicle with a highly efficient 3-D-printed captured cooling body ensuring maximised cooling which is crucial especially for stock racing classes. The pre-assembled units utilise 30mm low-profile cooling fans and they weigh in at 18g. Available are a B6.1 laydown, T6.1 layback and T6.1 laydown configurations.
R1 Wurks have introduced their new 7.6V 10000mAh Graphene LiHV battery pack. Build using high-performance 50C cells the high-voltage LiPo battery pack offers a monstrous 10000mAh of capacity at a somewhat low weight of only 330g, comparable to a 8400mAh pack, making it ideal for demanding and power-hungry classes such as 1/8th electric on-road. The Graphene technology ensures very low internal resistance, high discharge rates, enhanced punch and maximum top speed.
Coming from RC Speed Secrets and made for the R1 Wurks V16 stock brushless motors is the Beast-Mode motor performance kit. The set includes three titanium motor can screws, three endbell screws as well as a titanium motor ring and RCSS Next-Level hybrid ceramic motor bearings. As the stock steel screws and ring interfere with magnetic fields in the motor, causing drag on the rotor and holding it back from its full potential, the included titanium screws allow the motor to rev higher and perform better, something that is further helped by the free-spinning ceramic bearings. The set is best used with the V16 13.5T and 17.5T motors and it is available with “Bada Bling” oil-slick design or stealth black screws.
New from R1 Wurks is the Super LCG 80A spec racing brushless speed controller. Developed using an advanced CPU technology and proprietary software combo, the ESC is meant to deliver smooth yet most responsive throttle feel. The controller offers the same advanced throttle and brake adjustability as R1 Wurks’ Digital 2 ESC to suit a wide range of driving styles and offers blinky mode (zero timing) for spec racing. All adjustable settings are easily programmed using a digital program box, designed with an intuitive, easy to use interface. The unit also features the A.C.L.C. Advanced Component Level Cooling system, this design allows individual Mosfets to transfer heat directly to the upper heatsink. The Super LCG saves up to 50 grams (including wire) of weight compared to R1’s full sized ESC, and has a nearly 30 percent smaller footprint.
Coming from R1 Wurks is the new Digital 2 brushless speed controller. Rated at 200A constant current, the controller is usable with modified motors down to 3.0T but a blinky mode for zero timing spec racing makes it usable for non-boosted classes also. Several boost and turbo functions add to the extensive software features that include power delivery and brake strength settings. The unit also features the A.C.L.C. Advanced Component Level Cooling system, this design allows individual Mosfets to transfer heat directly to the upper heatsink. The power switch-less safety first system forces the user to disconnect the battery when its time to power off the controller, minimising the chances of leaving a live battery from draining. The controller is housed in a black anodised case with a specially designed heatsink and it is adjustable using a digital programming box.
R1 Wurks are currently working on their new Digital Drive line of servos. First up will be a high-voltage compatible low profile offering that pulls up to 17.5kg-cm at a speed of 0.06s. The servo is usable from 4.8V to 8.4V input and features a coreless motor, enhanced servo centring technology and all CNC-machined metal gears as standard as well as a lightweight CNC-machined case. From factory the servo comes with all-black wiring in your choice of a standard or 80mm short length version.
