From Team Orion (via Facebook):
Around 8:30 AM CT, Team Orion and the company's team drivers began sharing this logo as well as the short message "It's coming" across various social media platforms. The graphic alludes to an upcoming product called "Revolution."
In the mid-2000s, Team Orion had a line of Revolution line of brushed motors that used the "V2" endbell, which held cylindrical brushes at a steep angle to reduce chatter on the commutator and extend motor life. The Revolution lineup powered several of the team's drivers to national and world championships, and even featured special edition motors named after some of the racers.
Does that mean Team Orion is preparing to release a new lineup of brushless motors called "Revolution?" More information is expected in the coming days.
UPDATE (10:35 AM CT January 24)
The caption on the photo on the official Team Orion Facebook page says, "Stay Tuned...The Next Revolution in Racing Events is Coming!" indicating that the Revolution may be a series of competitions - perhaps around the world.
