See: R1 Wurks Motor Lab

R1 Motor lab have introduced the new LCG Digital-3 Super Stock Wireless programmable brushless speed controller. Developed using the most advanced microchip processor and a robust proprietary software, the LCG Digital-3 delivers the most technologically advanced features to date. Development of the LCG Digital-3 Super Stock was focused on ultra smooth power delivery needed for competition level racing as well as the power efficiency. The controller offers the most advanced throttle and brake features to suit a wide range of driving styles. The unit features an A.C.L.C. (Advanced Component Level Cooling) system. This design allows individual encapsulated low resistance mosfets (inner & outer components) to transfer heat directly to the upper heat sink. The system also comes equipped with an all new blinky mode (zero timing) for spec racing, using an advanced commutation algorithm called Cool Power to keep the motor cool and deliver powerful, yet ultra smooth acceleration.

Performa Racing P1 HMX 1/8 Power combo

See: Performa Racing

Performa Racing have introduced the new P1 HMX 1/8 Power combo for E-buggy and E-truggy. Nitro racing is popular because it’s simple, racers chose a 3 Port, 5 Port or 7 Port engine depending on the track, tune the needles to have good carburation, and drive. That’s all. Performa has now adapted that simplicity to electric racing. Controllers and motors used recently in 1/8 racing have hundreds (even thousands) of complex settings. While trying to understand and adjust the complex settings, many racers get lost and end up with tuning that is below optimal performance. The new Performa HMX Controller/Motor Combos deliver simplified settings using the Nitro concept, you select from 3 different pre-defined settings based on the track condition. No need to have a complex program box or a computer. The 3 settings have been tuned by our engineering team together with our World Champion Drivers to deliver maximum performance and simplicity. You can change the settings by simply pressing a button on the switch. For racers that want to dig deeper and fine tune the settings, we will offer Performa PC software that will allow you to change the parameters, within guidelines that ensure you don’t get lost and keep you in the optimal performance range.
