false .. the rotor is surely not damaged ...
the only way you can weaken your rotor (if it'S a gm) is by heating up the rotor not the motor! and that you can only achieve when the air/track temp is super high, you disable the current limiter and have a 180° turn at the end of a atleast 55m long straightaway ... then you might eventually demagnetize the rotor
other than that it's fine

The 12.3 (purple ring) is a lot weaker as the core of the rotor/shaft diameter is 7.3ish rather than 5mm ish (it's a long time since i bothered to measure them - hence i'm not 100% sure!) so there is quite a lot less "magnet".
The weaker rotor will obviously have more RPM and less torque, but personally i'm not convinced i'd run it in a 6 turn - BUT, I haven't tried it.
6T has always been delivered with 12.5mm rotor (the pro ones atleast) and this won't change
we use the 12.5mm rotor (red faceplate) in every motor/winding actually ... no need for somthing else

I had a few laps with it, the power is absolutely incredible. I suppose its just a matter of experimenting with gearing, motor timing and profile to get the temps acceptable.
It has firmware 4.9, I wonder if the later versions are more refined in the delivery?
a slight cog from 0revs on might occure from time to time with the older firmware standings
this has been fixed with fw7.2 butas said it only occures from time to time and then very minor and not while driving
note! don't let your car be pushed backwards at the start as this will cause cogging as the speedo needs to find the magnet first
