EMAX RS2205-S 2300KV Motor for FPV Racing CW Shaft Rotation

Introducing the Emax Race Spec 2205-S series of high-performance brushless motors built for multirotor FPV racing! The “S” series has had lots of improvements incorporated into the motor. The motor is 2g lighter, has a lower profile, yields faster bell rotational response, has a higher thrust rating (+100g) and uses premium materials and bearings.


From the drawing board through to the production line, these motors have been designed and engineered to provide premium performance in their class. Every motor is precision crafted within tight tolerances and paired with high-performance props from any leading manufacturer they will deliver awesome thrust and speed to burn.


Emax has produced an excellent motor and gone the whole nine yards by incorporating some real quality features.


The unique cooling fins draw up air from the motor base that then passes through the coils as the motor spools up. The faster it spins, the more air it moves. This “cool” feature reduces operating temperatures by up to 30% providing you with a longer lasting motor. The RS2205-S has had the cooling fins reworked for better performance.


This series of motors uses the highest grade N52SH curved magnets allowing motor operations that provide outstanding acceleration, stopping power and sustained high RPMs and this is assisted by genuine Japanese NMB bearings that ensure the smoothest operation.


Emax Race Spec motors will deliver reliable and outstanding performance for your racing quad and you know that’s exactly what you need if you want to take that chequered flag.

Tamiya X-21 Flat Base For Tamiya Gloss Paints (10ml)

Tamiya Flat Base is a paint additive that will transform any Tamiya acrylic glossy paint into a flat non-gloss color. (specifically designed for use with Tamiya bottled acrylic paint) To use simply begin by mixing a gloss color into a mixing jar with flat base additive and stir. Add Tamiya X-20A acrylic thinner if you will be airbrushing the transformed color. A beginning paint to flat base ratio is 10:1 (10 parts paint to 1 part flat base). If a flatter sheen is desirable add a little more flat base.


Tamiya acrylic paints are made from water-soluble acrylic resins and are excellent for either brush painting or air-brushing. These paints can be used on styrene resins, Styrofoam, wood, plus all of the common model plastics. The paint covers well, flows smoothly, and can be blended easily. Prior to curing, paint can be washed away with plain water.


• Transforms any Tamiya gloss paint into a non-gloss flat color
• Water soluble acrylic paint, perfect for airbrushes
• Suitable for most surfaces
• Easy to blend paint scheme


Bottle Contents: 10ml


Note: Adding too much flat base will yield a color that looks milky. When airbrushing make sure to use any of the following Tamiya thinners: 81020, 81030, 81040, 81520, 87077.

Bumper for Racing Battle – RPM Team Associated B6 & B6D Rear Bumper/Skid Plate

Racing is getting pretty intense as the technology of today’s racing buggies advance. All it takes is a single hit to the back of your race machine to realize the Team Associated B6 / B6D has absolutely no rear end protection. Do you really want your competition (or the guy that has zero throttle control behind you) to have straight access to your rear shock tower / A-arms / differential? Neither does RPM! That’s why they came up with this simple, yet highly effective rear bumper and skid plate for the Team Associated B6 & B6D.

RPM Team Associated B6 & B6D
RPM’s bumper is tiny and extremely lightweight, yet will become the most valuable piece of equipment on your ride the first time that out-of-control guy slams into your backside! The Rear Bumper weighs in at a minuscule 5.5 grams, however it offers some serious rear end protection. It is 2” (51mm) wide and extends rearward by roughly 1-1/4” (32mm) at a 45° angle. Additionally, it sits 0.095” (2.4mm) beneath the chassis. This skid area of the bumper lends extreme skid resistance to the back of that expensive aluminum chassis and helps reduce skid and impact damage to the rear of your chassis.
Don’t let a rear impact end your race. Let RPM protect what’s behind you so you can focus on what’s in front!
