Tekin announces T8i indoor-specific brushless motor

Tekin has officially released their new Redline T8i (indoor) brushless motor for large scale vehicles. What makes this motor unique is the concept about designing it for use only on high bite indoor tracks.  To achieve this goal the T8i is lighter and smaller in size than normal brushless motors in this class.  This will improve its agility in tight tracks and it still packs plenty of torque and power when you need it.  This gives indoor racers yet another tuning option when they head to the track.  More info in the press release from Tekin:

Tekin’s Redline T8i (Indoor) brushless motor is designed for large scale indoor high performance racing. Packed with the same features as the T8 series motors, the T8i is lighter in weight and smaller in size, offering greater agility on those tight indoor high bite tracks. Fine tuned for smooth and controlled operation indoors, the T8i are on the leading edge of RC motor technology. The T8i motor series the torque and power you need for a checkered flag finish.
