It is the first of a new generation of motor, which improves upon its predecessors' magnets, balancing, bushing and cooling. The first member is a 21500 RPM motor, with 170g.cm torque, and a max power 0f 9.6W. The endbell is orange and carries the Slot.it logo.
This motor will be standard on the Slot.it cars in the future. For the time being, all the V12/2 motors will be produced. Pricing will remain the same as the other V12/2 motors, part numbers:
SIMN06 - case inline
SIMX06 - universal no pinion
SIMS06 - endbell inline
SIMF06 - endbell sidewinder

This motor appears to mark an important shift in the current line of motors. If you have a short track or just like slower motors it seems that Slot.It is going in the "less (RPM) is more" direction, and I applaud that. At least the slotter is getting more choices in quality motors, and that's never a bad thing. Especially with the high quality Slot.It is known for.
With the absence of the now out of production NC1 Ninco will Slot.It produce a similar motor? Time will tell.
In the near future the Clarion Nissan R390 GT1 will be released with a "chassis surprise", will the Clarion be the first car with the new "standard" 21k? Is this the surprise in the chassis?
