New Product
Turnigy TrackStar 1/5 size motor

New motor from HK. Affordable 1/5 size brushless inrunner. Could be a cheap alternative to a CC2028?

Definately cheaper than a 2028 but unless they're "sand bagging" power figures it's nowhere close in output. Castle "claims" 8000 watts and mine sees over 6000 on a fairly regular basis.

Yea the output number does seen really REALLY low. I've pulled more than that with my CC1717...

That would need to be run on 10s to do FE boaters any good, they guy says up to 8s for some reason................... Its definately as big as a 2028 in length and diameter.

The 2028 is theoretically rated to 8S in a car setup, in a boat it is rated to 10S. Above those, warranty is void.
It's obviously a lower quality motor, but I wonder how much wattage it can actually take?

It actually makes wattage, you probably know that though

I ordered one of these two days ago and will dissect it when it gets here , as far as being the same size as the 2028 that it is not - close though . The 2028 is 57.0mm x 113.2mm and the Track star is 53.5mm x 114mm or 3.5mm ( 1/8inch ) less in diameter . If there is anyone here that has a 2028 and feels brave enough to take there's apart and measure the rotor size I would really like to compare it to the Trackstar when it arrives . If not no biggie I did take mine apart last year when I had one and I am pretty sure it was about 27mm give or take .

Sandbagging who knows that isn't the first time HK has gotten the specs wrong .

That is correct but I think this one is also with the fins , there is no doubt that it is still a large powerplant and as you guys figure a little on the underrated side........ For $128.00 it is one hell of a deal

It could just be a thinner casing. Castle would realize the power of the motor and if one were ever to shed a magnet there would have to be a lot of material there to stop it. a 1/8" vs 1/16" case would make up for the missing size.

If you were to ever shed a magnet it would be the stator that would take the blow not the casing . Any casing that I have ever seen has been no thicker than a 1/16 inch or less . In regards to the Trackstar it is either a smaller rotor and stator or just the stator . Castle's casings are about as thin as everyone else's - if you were to shed a 1/16 you'd have nothing there .
