My concern with this motor is the opening for cooling.

An e-clip is frightening.

This one is the Performa P1 1/8 Motor

While the first image you posted is the Performa P1 1/8 Radical Motor

The radical version has extra cut out at fin area, claimed to dissipate heat faster.
Would be OK for onroad. But for outdoor offroad track, dirt might get stuck inside the motor

So they ditch the vented can design... The price is similar to hobbywing 4268 sd g2... Should be a one of the option for anyone looking for new motor...

No thats a new motor in 690 size, like what some use in Truggy.

Default Performa P1 HMX 1/8 Combo

This went online yesterday;


RADICAL CONCEPT
Performa is a brand for Elite Racers. Our goal is to produce the best 1/8 controllers and motors, and re-define the racer experience with a radical “next level” controller/motor combo. With the Performa Racing HMX 1/8 Combo we are proud to demonstrate that we have achieved our goal. Nitro racing is popular because it’s simple, racers chose a 3 Port, 5 Port or 7 Port engine depending on the track, tune the needles to have good carburation, and drive. That’s all. Performa has now adapted that simplicity to electric racing. Controllers and motors used recently in 1/8 racing have hundreds (even thousands) of complex settings. While trying to understand and adjust the complex settings, many racers get lost and end up with tuning that is below optimal performance. The new Performa HMX Controller/Motor Combos deliver simplified settings using the Nitro concept, you select from 3 different pre-defined settings based on the track condition. No need to have a complex program box or a computer. The 3 settings have been tuned by our engineering team together with our World Champion Drivers to deliver maximum performance and simplicity. You can change the settings by simply pressing a button on the switch. For racers that want to dig deeper and fine tune the settings, we will offer Performa PC software that will allow you to change the parameters, within guidelines that ensure you don’t get lost and keep you in the optimal performance range.

RADICAL TECHNOLOGY
It became clear during research and development that making universal controllers for universal motors limits maximum performance, and is not the right way to reach our goal of making radical “next level” controllers and motors for Elite racers. The new Performa HMX Controller features a very innovative type of sensor technology developed for optimal performance when used only with Performa Radical HMX 690 motors. It delivers maximum power and smooth power delivery, radical “next level” performance that goes beyond what a compromised universal system can provide.

RADICAL SOLUTIONS
The Performa HMX Controller is designed and manufactured without compromise. Each controller is assembled in Geneva Switzerland, it is a high end unit produced in limited quantities for Elite Racers. The circuit boards are made in one of the most sophisticated factories, every board is scanned using laser analyzing devices for each soldering joint and every component. The all-aluminum case has been designed for minimum footprint and optimized cooling. Performa external capacitors have been chosen to obtain Radical Performance. Featuring 2 boards of 4 Panasonic capacitors to provide radical “next level” performance.

RADICAL TESTING
The Performa Racing HMX 1/8 Combos have been tested for more than two years by our engineering team, and for a year one by David Ronnefalk, IFMAR World Champion. Recently David made a demonstration of the radical performance by winning the famous 2019 DNC race in the USA.

IMPORTANT
Note that the Performa HMX Controller analyses if a Performa Radical HMX 690 motor is connected, it will not work with other motors. The Performa Radical HMX 690 motors will work with other controllers, but offer maximum performance only when used with a Performa HMX Controller.
