    Flux Tork 2650 Motor

    June 2, 2009 - 17:53 by Kevin 0 Comments


    “The Flux Tork 2650 motor is a fantastic upgrade to the Savage Flux HP, and provides extra top speed with its higher RPM rating, giving you even more jaw-dropping top speed for the Savage Flux! The Flux Tork 2650 features the coolest motor cases we’ve ever seen, with massive machined cooling fins that really make it look the part of an all-out power plant! With a 5mm motor shaft it can fit the upcoming optional pinion gears so you can get even MORE top speed for those insane runs, or gear it down a bit for increased acceleration on the track. The ideal speedo match for the Tork 2650 is the #100685 Flux Blur speedo, the most powerful brushless speed controller we could find. With the ability to handle twin 3S LiPo batteries (that’s a total of 6S LiPo power!) it can deal with anything the Tork 2650 motor can dish out! 6mm bullet connectors secure the motor wires for loss-free connection to the 12-gauge wires, and to connect to each battery pack we’ve attached real Dean’s connectors for zero power loss and total efficiency. We figured why re-invent the wheel and release our own connector when the best is already available? Topping off the versatility of the Flux Blur speedo (literally) is an integrated cooling fan, which allows the speedo to operate at its ideal temperature.” Find Out More… [Source - hpi-europe.com]
