Cool 44.5mm Team Powers “Super Lite” BL motor

Well, as the title said, this could be the shortest car motor.
Not sure if its power has enough power for TC, at least from Team Powers' word, it should be nice for F1 and Mini, so check this out, please:

Come on why such people saw this thread without leaving any replies?
A car motor with 44.5mm, isn't it interesting?
No 1 is interested is just because actual race rules has limit weight and using LIPOs?
Or maybe is just because it's made in China and HK branch, since these issues no 1 care about it, isn't it?
Look, a lot of branch with high quality kind are from HK and made in China, isn't it?

Team Powers has some tyres for mini which are quite good, so I tend to think this would be of a reasonable standard too! A shorter sensored motor is definitely interesting!

This is perfect for the HPI Cup racer which has longitudinal motor positioning. So the question is how easy is it to get Team Powers motors?

50g lighter than my losi. I'd give it a shot if the power was there and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I'd rather be able to add weight where I wanted it.

That would work good for the shaft drive 4wd mini's for sure if the power is there?

I would give one a try for the right price

I wonder how it would do in a 4 cell Nimh powered 12th scale?

Why are you surprised that a niche part of a niche croud that likes a niche hobby has not found a thread of a niche product? Things take a little time for all the right people to find your thread.

Round cell 12th scale is about to die.

Cool

Wait, how about for TCs, if this Super lite has enough power or not?
From my preference i like more the normal size version instead of the "lite" sizes for the TCs.
At least it has ventilation hole, could be have a running cooler better and cheaper than Losi's Xcelorin. Unfortunately the weakest point is, the product is still not in market, i believe is due the factory is too small little well known, not so much HS sell it's stuff.
And if it suits so much the our new race class, 3100KV tub chassis.
But for example, for the F1, and remember, the race rules, at least from the majority places, has no mentioned the limit weight and allowing using LIPO, so i believe the Super lite 17.5 is the choice to put the car as light as to fly.
Unfortunately in our place is still only allowing silver cans.

is that a fixed sensor wire? A fixed sensor wire is the main reason I don't run novak motors.

Not sure, the information is poor and just few places are selling it, mostly in HK.
But why you don't like fixed wire?
