Here is what Novak has to say about their sintered (neodymium, magetic) rotors:JSchoenauer said:Looks like I am behind the timea again. What are they and who makes them?
Thanks John Schoenauer
----Low turns and an exclusively designed Nickel-plated Sintered Neodymium rotor make the 3.5R system the fastest Velociti Brushless System. The new high-performance rotor is different from the original Velociti rotor, and provides many benefits including:
Significantly increased magnetic strength
Improved, stronger motor braking power
Improved performance in higher temperature conditions
Improved motor acceleration and power
Lower current draw
Nickel-plated for a long lasting, smooth, clean finish
So would their be a benefit in a 13.5 novak as well?NovakTwo said:Here is what Novak has to say about their sintered (neodymium, magetic) rotors:
Then I Googled this--will probably tell you way more than you ever wanted to know....
PS--this is just for information and is not the company that mfgs Novak's sintered rotors.
If your running a 13.5 with the old style SS endbell then you need to contact Novak's tech dept. Their specs on their add page claim the larger bearing that is in the velociti motors. I contacted them and received the upgrade kit and received it today, no charge. They told me that the first batch of 30 or so motors went out with the ss endbells by mistake. Be Blessed, :wave:trashedmaxx said:I'm pretty sure that the end bell will need to be switch to the velociti end bell for the sintered rotor to work. But since some local tracks are going to be allowing these motors in the stock class's lets not get them thrown out by making them illegal.
BTW I have a sintered rotor in my 7.5 that I run in mod and its sweet. Low temps insane torqe.
