This motor is based on Steve Neu’s awesome 15 series motor, and truly is a electronic work of art. It features high quality oversized ABEC-1 bearings, sintered Neodymium magnets, superior electromagnetic design, and rigorous engineering control in the Castle factory, resulting in a Monster motor that Castle is proud to put their name on.
The 75mm long Neu-Castle 2200kV is recommended for monster truck and 1/8 scale off road applications, up to 6S (22.2V). The efficiency of a motor determines its quality. Higher efficiency means better design and high quality components. The higher the efficiency of the motor the more power it can produce before it overheats. Here’s a little math. Say you are laying down 1,000 watts, (about 1¼ horsepower), and your motor is rated as being 70% efficient. That means 300 watts is being turned into heat. Ever grab a 300 watt light bulb? If the motor is 85% efficient it only burns 150 watts as heat. More power goes to the wheels and the motor runs cooler, making it capable of putting out even more power when needed.
It’s always better to reduce the heat generated in an electric power system with superior engineering, rather than to try and cool things with fans and other gimmicks. Sure, a fan can get you a few degrees, but it is much better to have a superior design to begin with.
