Motor Reedy Sonic 540-M4 competition brushless motor février 13, 2020 by Chris Leave a Comment Associated Electrics have introduced the new Reedy Sonic 540-M4 competition brushless motor for 1/10th vehicles. Internally, the 540-M4 is very similar to that of the 540-M3 that it replaces — it produces the same linear powerband and excellent mid-range feel that have become synonymous with Reedy’s modified motors. However, changes can be good when they serve a purpose. In the case of the 540-M4, the inner bearing has been moved so that it is part of the can instead of the sensor assembly, which more precisely aligns the rotor within the magnetic field while reducing noise and vibration.

The reduced length, combined with improvements to the can design, results in a 5-10g reduction in weight. A balanced, high-strength rotor provides powerful fade-free performance. A variety of optional rotors are available to fine-tune for specific applications and tracks. Precision stainless steel ball bearings have been fitted to reliably accommodate high RPM loads. Several versions are available and all meet ROAR, EFRA, and IFMAR specifications. Features: CNC-machined lightweight can Aluminum end cap Lightweight design Low-resistance, silver-plated solder tabs Optimized air cooling Dual precision ball bearings Balanced rotor High-strength magnet Adjustable timing Completely rebuildable Competition proven Built to ROAR/EFRA/IFMAR specs About Associated Electrics: Team Associated has been in the forefront of hobby-car racing since 1965.
