French company RC Concepts introduce a 540-class electric brushless motor and a 120A brushless speed controller, both aimed at 1/10th scale applications. Starting with the EC called motor, it is based around a T6 aluminium can with venting openings for a low overall weight and efficient cooling of the internals. The magnets are of a high-performance neodymium type and the motor offers dual sensor ports, a heatsink timing plate and heavy duty solder tabs. To comply with a wide range of applications the motor is available as 5.5T to 10.5T modified and as a 13.5T stock class variant.
RC Concept from France is a new company from Sebastien Chaffardon, best known as the mechanic of Yannick Aigoin, who with more than 30 years of racing experience will enter the market with a range of 1/8th off-road engines. Offering a long-stroke design the 3-port MC3 and 5-port MC5 engine are available with standard or ceramic rear bearings, all offer silicone-filled crankshafts and the ceramic engines also feature crankshaft balancing for even higher performance. The engines come with specially designed crankcases to prevent deformation caused by strong exhaust springs and the cooling heads sport a unique design with vertically places upper fins to improve the airflow and thus engine cooling especially in hot ambient temperatures.
