KO Propo Advantage Capacitor C

See: KO Propo

KO Propo have introduced the Advantage Capacitor C for an ESC for a brushless motor. This capacitor suppresses the decline of power in the latter half of a running time, allowing improved average lap in race and leading to a shortening of total time. The characteristic of this capacitor suppresses excessive rise of torque for a modified motor. To ensure that you can use the Advantage Capacitor C, please check the “Capacitor for Brush-less motor Chart” here.

Reedy S-Plus Competition Spec Class motors

After several months of behind-the-scenes development and track testing, Team Associated have announced the release of the all-new Reedy S-Plus Competition Spec Class motor. The heart of the S-Plus is a thin leg stator that allows shorter wire lengths, resulting in a massive reduction in resistance, a reduction in resistance just above the minimum allowed by R.O.A.R.

LRP X22 Works Team Modified rotors

LRP have introduced a line of Works Team Modified rotors for the X22 motors. Theses rotors can be further tuned and optimized and feature targeted improvements for a wide variety of tracks and requirements. The selection has been extended to five versions with a diameter of 12.1mm – 13.0mm to offer the optimum tuning option for every application. A new finely balanced magnet on black original LRP shaft ensures the highest efficiency and performance of the X22 Modified motor.

Dash R-Tune 540 sensored brushless motors

Arrowmax have introduced the new Dash R-Tune 540-size sensored brushless motor. The motor features a high-airflow can with huge cool openings around the front section while machined openings in the stator area further increase the airflow in this area. This leads to a much cooler motor towards the end of a run and thus reduced fading and more stable performance. An updated stator further adds to the overall performance with increased torque and reduced heat build-up.

Reedy 550-SL4 sensorless brushless motor

Reedy have introduced the new 550-SL4 sensorless brushless motor for 1/10 4WD RTR. Due to its sensorless 4-pole configuration, the 550-SL4 operates powerfully, efficiently, and reliably in a variety of vehicles and applications. The 3500kV rating provides plenty of speed with 2S LiPo batteries. But install a 3S LiPo battery for insane speeds that are barely controllable! A high-strength rotor provides plenty of torque and resists overheating better than 2-pole alternatives.
