New Atomic "17mm" Round-Motor-Can Mini-Z motor

Hey guys,
what's the story on the new Atomic 17mm Mini-Z motor? The motor can looks round like a 540 motor can and also larger diameter-wise, so I'm thinking the armature is larger diameter-wise (instead of being longer-length-wise, which Long-Arms and Spiral arms have been around for a while now).

Any info on what this motor is supposed to be? Modified? Stock? Overall more torque AND more RPM's?

Any info would be great! THANKS!

By the pics, it looks like it is smaller in size than the widest, but larger than the narrowest width since it is round... Besides the pics, I know nothing about the motor.

Very interesting for sure. Atomic seems to always bring us the latest in motor technology and innovation. I hope to hear more about this motor soon.

***Also, in some photos on rcAtomic . com and in the "New Products" thread, I could've sworn I saw a weird label on a couple motors. Maybe it's just a new label for an old motor, but if anyone from Atomic has info&specs about any new motors I would greatly appreciate it!

Does anyone have a pic of the supposed 17mm motor? The pic EMU posted seems to show a 130-can to me.

Brian, its a gif, look at it for about 30 seconds... and it will change and show the comparison of the 17mm to the 130

Ah, whoops. That's what I get for looking at MZR from a phone. 17mm motor looks interesting, I wonder what size the rotor is. The 130 is already filled up inside so wouldn't a round-can motor of 17mm have to have a smaller rotor = less torque?

it looks to me to be a round can 130. which means you can have bigger magnets.The round can also has more airspace for cooling. With a round can you will have placement issues with most motor mounts.

Look at the size when it is in the motormount, it is not the same diameter. If you have a caliper, measure the 130 can... I guarantee that it is larger than 17mm. I would say 19, maybe 20mm at the widest part. So it is definitely not a round 130 (I thought that at first too).

I just took a 130, and put the armature shaft through a bearing in a PN 19mm wheel (off my pan car), and it looks to be the same diameter as the wheel. Maybe the magnets are thinner, but longer?

Does anyone knows if it mounts on a standard 130mm motor mount or requires a specific one?

It looks like it is mounted in standard 130 ATM mount in the pictures...

There is no "one" motor mount and the endbell does not determine if you can use it on a mini-z. All mini-z motors have the same "d-cut" on the end of the motor but the m1 endbell is specifically made by atomic. It is not very reliable because you will notice your car stops when you crash due to the design with the brushes. The endbell used in this 17mm motor is NOT the m1 but the regular HE. The m1 has a brush system that uses springs to tension them against the commutator.
