These new motors feature a high-torque 4-pole rotor with a 5mm shaft, neodymium sintered magnets, and an integrated heat sink. Check our the press release for more info:

Thanks to advancements in battery technology, 1:8 electric buggies and truggies are destined to be the next big racing class. Reedy recognizes this fact with the release of the powerful and reliable Sonic 1512 competition brushless motor which has been designed specifically for these classes.

A precision-machined case features an integrated heat sink to lower operating temperatures, which results in less fade over the course of a race, longer run times, and increased motor life. Sensored operation results in a smooth and controllable power band, while a high-torque 4-pole rotor featuring neodymium sintered magnets is supported by precision ball bearings for maximum power output and reliability.

A choice of three versions means that there is a Sonic 1512 competition brushless motor to suit most tracks and conditions.
