Kyosho have announced the soon release of their all-new Speed House Torx 10 540-size brushless motors. The sensored motors were developed for high-performance competition use, offering high efficiency, a low weight and exceptional heat dissipation thanks to a highly machined case. Sturdy heavy-duty solder tabs and a rearward-facing sensor port round out the package. The 5.5T to 10.5T modified motors will come equipped with a 5.0×12.3×24.0mm rotor while the 13.5T to 21.5T stock motors are tuned using a 5.0×12.5×24.2mm rotor.
Coming from Xray and made for their T4 2020 touring car is a solid aluminium chassis for high to very high bite track conditions. Machined from high-quality 2.0mm 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised for wear and looks the chassis is best used on high to very high grip carpet and asphalt track where the limited torsional flex can lead to an easier to drive, more stable and more predictable car while countering traction rolling at the same time. In addition and according to Xray‘s Jimmy Maddison the solid chassis can also help settling the car on bumpy tracks. The chassis allows to use the new longer as well as the older short-style suspension, it comes with white, laser-etched Xray logos and will hit stores very soon.
