Is there a way to tell if they bought a hand wound stator or not or is it the same thing that comes with the motor? Someone said one is red wire vs orange.... is any of this making sense?
Make sure you give everyone the link
for the rules. The stators are pretty much the same as the rest of the motor just run it like it came using a 25.5 stator. I think there was an epoxy dipped stator in a 25.5 and Im pretty sure that its illegal and not really sure if its any advantage anyway. I think the ones that come with the motor are machine wound. I think Novak Two can chime in on that. Not sure if it improves anything to rewind it yourself. I wouldnt mess with that. Changing the wire has to be illegal. I know that unwinding it is.
If you unwound it and used the same wire to wind it by hand it probably would not be illegal but it probably would not perform any better either and would be a big waste of time and effort and will most likely just smoke your motor and possibly your speed controller and maybe even your lipo. So again I would not mess with that.
Do you have racers winding their own motors?
