I believe Cubby mentioned it a few days ago. We are starting to receive some new Li-Po battery packs for our first ever battery shoot out! I’m really excited about this! We hope to be able to answer a lot of those questions/emails we get all the time like, What LiPo battery is the best in my rc vehicle? or What LiPo will last the longest on a brushless setup?
It should be pretty interesting. There are a LOT of great battery companies out there to choose from!
It looks like we are already getting packs in from Thunder Power RC, CORE, Speed Passion, Scooter Motor Works, and True RC, so we are off to a good start! More details coming soon!

Scooter Motor Works Brushless “When going fast is not an option”

Scooter Motor Works is releasing their all new hand tuned brushless motor. Each motor is hand selected and tested then the wires are checked for tightness and the magnets are zapped if need on our custom built magnet zapper. Each motor is tested to make sure it falls within the roar guide lines for inductance. The motors are based on the trinity duo motor so they will be roar legal right away.

Available in 0.5, 17.5, 13.5 and a 21.5

Stop by Scooter Motor Works and check them out!

Scooter Motor Works A quick news update from Scooter Motor Works is that their 5300 25c and 3800 30c LiPo’s have both been roar approved!

Scooter Motor Works 3600 Lipo News from Scooter Motor Works is that their Power Pack Li-Po are available for sale through Stormers Hobbies and RC Madness and through Scooters Motorworks web site. For Hobby Shop sales contact ERI Distributors. All three batteries come in a ROAR legal size hard case with a Tamiya connector attached and with a pair of 3.5mm female gold banana connectors. The current versions look to be 3200mah, 3600mah, and 4000mah.

Scooter Motor Works Brushless Nemesis We just got word from our buddy Scooter over at Scooter Motor Works that he’s got a new ESC/Motor combo in the works. It’s a brushless setup called the Nemesis. My favorite part, it comes with the hand held programmer, so you don’t have to go lugging a laptop around. He mentioned a price point that seemed very reasonable. There are more details posted over at the official Scooter Motor Works site. Go check it out. I think he will be taking pre-orders soon. Make sure to tell Scooter, Big Squid RC sent ya there!

Wow. I just got a letter from from Scooter telling me he has left
Team Tekin! Scooter has been the face of Tekin for years now, and it’s always great to talk with him at the iHobby shows. If you ever get the chance to meet him in person you will see he is one of the most passionate people about RC you could ever know.

Scooter has started his own thing called Scooter Motor Works. There isn’t much there on the site yet, but it sounds like he will have everything from Li-PO’s to new brushless esc’s! We will make sure to bring you all the future announcements from there.

We wish both Scooter and Team Tekin the best of luck in the future, I’m sure both will come out just fine.

Since we are talking about Scooter, check out our footage of him from last years i-hobby show, it’s probably the last time anyone will see him in front of a Tekin sign!
