I thought they were on sale but I can't find one any where. It seem's as though all the new BL controllers have dropped off the face of the earth. Tekin, Orion and GM have stopped all talk and release dates.

Graupner the official german distributor have just added the new speedo to there site in the last week or so, so you could try contacting them they have been very helpful to me with dealing with them from the UK.

I recommend the GM Genius 95. I've been using it for a while and it is really impressive. With it's aluminium case temp stays low and the throttle feel is really good. This speedo together with the brushless motor have changed electric racing for me. No comm truing, soldering or motor run in any more, and I got rid of all the brushes and springs and the lathe.
I have never enjoyed electric racing as much as I do now thanks to this brushless system.

Any chance the sensor harness connector on the Orion BL ESC will be compatible with LRP/Novak motors? I noticed the Genius 95 requires an adapter. Making that harness any longer than it is already might cause baby Jesus cry.

There is a new series of brushless motors realeased by GM with which u use only one cable (without the adapter) directly from the motor to the esc.

You won't find the motors in the shop

you have to search für the evo 2 ifmar motors and then there is a red link to the new evo 3 brushless.

Some things are different, mostly these motors stay coolre during the run making the power output even more consistant.

I have 1 of these EVO3 motors.

The difference is that it has a sinterd rotor with a fan attached Plus it has a lot of holes in the can for cooling. And when it runs it sounds like a grinder heheh (wel it makes a lot of noice).

The sensor kabel is also one cable, but it is way to short (4-5cm) so i cant use it in my b4.

The problem i have with the gm motors is that they wont fit into my BJ4 WE because they are to long, i could make them fit, but then i have to modify my chassis.

I have been told by a fairly reliable source that Orion won't have a brushless ESC and will only do a motor.

The problem in the UK is that there is 'pin-out' rules for the harness and I'm not sure that the GM 95 will be legal because of this reason (as you need an adaptor to get it to make up to the novak or LRP ESC's).
