Default Losi excelorin sensored brushless motors

hey all: Came across these today on the losi site and want everyone's opinion on them as far as being high level race worthy and are they on par with other brushless such as novak,tekin,lrp ect? If they are what are the chances we'll see some of the losi team drivers use them? Thanks for the info

Looks like a novak copy, since novak and losi have had joint ventures together before I would guess they are behind these also.

What???


In any case, they should be fine, I havent seen anyone use them at a track (since I dont have one locally) but I would assume they are perceived as RTR stuff.

bmaglinger,

What does that post have to do with the topic of this thread? That's the kind of stuff that has you in low regard here on this forum.

Please, I've asked you way too many times. Stay on topic.

I am pretty sure it is not RTR stuff. It is legit systems to run against LRP and Novak. I was talking to a couple of Losi onroad guys and they are trying it out in their sedans this weekend.

Losi says it will be out by mid April which means early JulyÖ.
Iím sure Losi is aiming for a top level system and not just RTR

Losi just recently came out with arguably more play orientated sensorless systems. So if that was the only market they cared about why bother with sensored systems?

I've been running the Losi sensored ESC for a couple of months now and it is a full race system targeted towards the racing crowd, their sensorless stuff is what's targeted to the bashers. It has more adjustments than you could possibly need and it's easy to make changes. It's losi's own esc, not a novak collaboration.

Yeah it looks like a full out race system but if Novak didn't have a hand in this Losi might want to lawyer up!!!! Because it looks just like a GTB system.

Feigao had a sensored ESC that looks just like this ESC also.

Well, except for all of the adjustability it offers. Guess the lawyers still win thou huh? Remains to be seen how many guys will be pointing out how great the service department is.

My friend just bought the new Losi Speed-T 1/10 stadium Truck and it comes with the excelorin system. Even on the lowest setting the truck is very quick and runs very well. He has no complaints and I think it's a pretty good system. I'm sure there are much better systems out there but it's a pretty solid unit.

Also they are avaliable already. I was at a local shop on Saturday and they had them in. Owner said they just got them in the week before.

Does anyone knows what's the real kv or turn for the xcelorin sensored 6.5t?
because 6.5t xcelorin its very slow compared with lrp 6.5t.
