Brushless Motors in F1



Slot Cars with Brushless Motors

Here is the same F1 car fitted with a later ESC.  As you can see there this later ESC doesn’t have the large capacitor seen in the earlier version.

This is the car  Bob Budge used  in the main grade Final at the 2021 Nationals

This is a F1 car as seen in early August 2021.  

The early version of the ESC in this photo has a capacitor .  Apparently this stores energy which is used to keep the electronics running when the track voltage is low.
