Default SMC Brushless Motors

Found out recently that SMC is going to release sensored brushless motors for 1/10 offroad soon. Ill try to keep up as more info is released. What winds do you want to see?

I don't think theres much demand for 13.5's, I currently run one as thats what I had sitting around as we ran them a year ago, but I'd definitly want to see a 10.5 as a mild mod motor. A slightly lower turn motor like a 4.5 or 5.5 would also be good for those who run 4wd on carpet/turf

Still waiting on a ship date. Once I have a date I will post it.

We will start with 6.5 , 7.5 , 8.5 , 9.5 and 10.5 to start with. If these motors become popular we will offer other winds.

For 17.5 stock we will release a spec motor for clubs and tracks who are tired of the motor of the month and all the tuning options.

For a full blown 17.5 race motor we will only release one once we're sure it's as good as the best ones currently out in the market.

Some of you have been asking me for KV ratings. I personally don't believe in ratings as they mean nothing unless they are all done using the same equipment and setup. By this I mean is we use a certain tester to get the KV and have it setup at 7.2V our KV ratings will be different then another company who uses a different tester and voltage.

We see this all the time with batteries where C rates have become useless as they are all achieved differently if even tested. I believe nitro engines have the same issues where certain companies claim higher torque and RPM than others and in fact their motors aren't as powerful on the track.

Our goal is to supply a high quality motor at an affordable price. I can't guarantee that our motors will be faster than others but they should be similar.
