Team Orion Vortex MR8 Brushless Motors

With the Vortex MR8 Team Orion brings 1/8 sensor motor technology to the next level. The 4-pole sensor concept together with high quality components give you maximum power and best driving feel.

The MR8 motors are perfect for racing applications in buggies. With the compact dimensions they fit standard sized 1/8 vehicles.

The “oversized” MR8L will give your Truggy or Monster truck the ultimate power. The 1500kV version can handle up to 6S while the other motors should be used with batteries with up to 4 cells LiPo. Please check the dimensions to be sure the MR8L motor fits your car.

Developed from scratch

The Vortex MR8 racing motors have been developed from scratch to deliver best performance to electric powered buggies, truggies and monster trucks using Heavy-duty materials and extra strong magnets.

Choice of stars

The Vortex MR8 motors have been chosen by many 1/8 nitro stars for their electric cars. They worked closely together with our R&D manager Oscar Jansen to develop the next generation brushless motors.

4-Pole Brushless Power

Power is good, control is better – the MR8 motors have both! Thanks to a sophisticated 4-pole system, the MR8 motors deliver best power and control at every throttle position. The motors reach an efficiency of up to 90%.
