REDS Racing have released a teaser image of the forthcoming VX3 brushless motor. No information about the new motor have leaked in the wake but detailed images and information about it should become available very soon.

Yeah Racing Hackmoto V brushless motors

See: Yeah Racing

Yeah Racing have introduced the new Hackmoto V brushless motors for 1/10th vehicles. Using oversized copper wires, the internal resistance of the motors has been lowered. Oversized angle copper tabs allow for a large area to solder wires onto. The motor case has been lightened as much as possible to reduce the weight which allows racers to easily balance their cars and aids with cooling. The motor is available in four different winding including 5.5T, 10.5T, 13.5T and 17.5T.

Team Zombie Evo brushless motor

See: Team Zombie

Team Zombie have introduced the new Evo brushless motor. Designed in the UK, the updated design boasts the largest alloy insulator in the RC industry and allows for instant amp draw (full throttle) from the esc transfer. This minimizes heat trapped and allows for maximum output as the voltage to the copper wire pushes the power all the way to the rotor. The uniquely designed, one-piece, alloy motor can has vents to cool down the alloy insulator and rotor, and cover most of the stator area. The timing endbell side also has vents to cool the motor for some of the off-road chassis application.

Hobbywing introduce World Champion combos

See: Hobbywing North America

Hobbywing have introduced two new World Champion combos, the Spencer Rivkin Edition and the Bruno Coelho Edition. The combos include XR10 Pro speedo and a XeRun V10 G3 8.5T motor for the Spencer Rivkin Edition combo while the Bruno Coelho Edition combo come with a XeRun V10 G3 7.5T motor. The First 10 to order the Spencer Rivkin combo will receive specially sign by Spencer himself.

Muchmore Fleta ZX8 Evolution 1/8 brushless motor

See: Muchmore Racing

Muchmore have introduced the new Fleta ZX8 Evolution brushless motor for 1/8 vehicles. The Fleta ZX8 Evolution features the Flow-Max Ver.II aluminum cooling body designed for extreme cooling even in extreme motor conditions, bearing with a super low-friction steel inner shield on the side maximum protection against the elements while optimizing the drive train efficiency compared to all-metal shielded ball races, a 4-pole-8-magnet “staggered-pole” rotor providing a low cogging effect and a very low torque pulse, dual-plug sensor connector holes allowing to change the sensor position according to car layout. Also new is the new Hall sensing system, designed to be error-free and ensures reliable operation in the user’s full sensor mode. The ultra-precision encoder sends a clean signal at all times and protects the Hall sensing system by excluding interference from other signals. The Fleta ZX8 Evolution 1/8 brushless motor is available in 1900kV, 2200kV, 2600kV and 3200kV.

6MIK CRF Optima ‘Booster’ rear cover

See: 6MIK

6MIK have introduced the new Optima ‘Booster’ rear cover for Team Orion Racing, Performa Racing and Optima CRF engines. The rear crankcase cover features two internal channels increasing engine efficiency by feeding optimally the ports. In addition, thanks to a mixture less impacted by the movement of the conrod, the CRF engine offers an improved idle stability, fuel mileage and overall engine performance.

Hobbywing XeRun V10 G3R brushless stock motor

See: Hobbywing

Hobbywing have introduced the new XeRun V10 G3R brushless stock motor. The XeRun V10 G3R brushless stock motor features an optimized stator structure combined with the super magnetic rotor improving the G3R Stock motor’s torque by 13.3%, KV value by 6.5% and maximum output power by 8.6% when compared to the V10 G3 Stock motor. The high torque, RPM and power make it a “secret weapon” for the Stock class racing. The resistance is also reduced by 11% but the efficiency is improved by 6% when compared to the V10 G3 Stock motor. The super high efficiency significantly slow down the temperature increase. The G3R Stock weighs only 139g and is 8.6% lighter than some popular Stock motors (that weigh 152g) on the market. The light-weight motor allows drivers to easily control the balance of their RC vehicles. The special shell design which makes the stator core (/laminations) expose to the air will maximize cooling, the big holes on the front and rear end plates will guarantee outstanding heat dissipation.
