The REDS VX2 540 Sensored Brushless Motor is a low resistance 13.5T motor that guarantees maximum power and efficiency to ensure a big improvement over the previous version. The 2-piece CNC machined can offers a 20% increase in cooling efficiency compared to the 1st generation REDS motors. The High Power Stator doesn’t use a separate insulator, helping to create a lighter motor and guarantee improved cooling efficiency. REDS Racing VX2 brushless motors incorporate “maximum low resistance copper wire” that provides very low internal resistance. This pure copper magnetic wire has been combined with Low resistance collector rings to guarantee maximum power and higher RPM. The precision balanced neodymium high-temperature rotor for an increased performance and optional rotors are available to help tune for different track conditions.

REDS VX2 540 Sensored Brushless Motor (13.5T)
Should have seen the red flags after the first time I turned on power to this motor after soldering up and smelled ozone reminiscent of overheated electronics. Then tried all I could to keep temps in check but ultimately lost the battle. A fan is a must even for a motor with excessive venting such as this and gearing became limited.
Had impressive power, speed and performance for some of my early race sessions. But in the short few months I had managed some success a broken fan ultimately led to my motor smoking out during a seven minute main.
Has promise, comes from a reputable company, runs strong.
Not for me.

Despite my early concerns, this turned out to be a great running, very consistent motor. Would buy it again.
