<DIV id=consumerWebCopyDiv class=wrapDiv>
<P>For 12 months, the Reedy development team has been working behind the scenes utilizing a combination of new ideas and proven concepts to create the all-new Sonic 540-M3 Competition Brushless Motor.</P>
<P>On the outside, the 540-M3 appears very similar to the Mach 2, but look closely and you will realize that nothing has been carried over from the previous model. A 3-piece CNC machined can reduces weight while improving airflow, component fit, and bearing alignment. Heavy-duty silver-plated solder tabs are not only thicker to reduce resistance, but are also cupped to aid soldering and well supported to prevent internal connections from fatiguing over time.</P>
<P>Inside, changes are less obvious but result in huge performance gains. Sonic 540-M3 Spec motors walk the edge of legality in exchange for maximum power output and RPM thanks to an all-new stator design, pure copper magnet wire, and low-resistance collector rings. Available short-stack versions suit 1S powered pan cars and under the right circumstances can create a power advantage in 2S powered buggies, trucks, and touring cars.</P>
<P>A balanced, high-strength sintered rotor provides powerful, fade-free performance thanks to improved manufacturing processes. To fine-tune for specific applications and tracks, a variety of optional rotors are available. Lastly, larger precision stainless steel ball bearings have been fitted to accommodate high RPM loads with improved reliability.</P>
