then u say that you agree that they're closer to 21t-23t than they are to 23t. as a consumer who does not waht to throw away $$. what should I buy
ROAR from what i understand is looking at rating BL spec motors by KV due to the differences by the manufactures.
i would gladly take any
Novak 13.5 over any ROAR 27T brushed, i would even allow bearings.
i said previously "have run the 23T BB spec stock motors before and would have to agree the Novak EX13.5 is closer to it than to a 27T. The Pro13.5 with sintered probably faster. the Trinity XX stock with bearings don't even hold a light to a 13.5.
the Novak EX13.5 doesn't have a sintered rotor, etc. the Novak Pro13.5 has a sintered rotor, machined ribs, etc. it runs cooler and more efficient. none of of 12th road guys have tried the new version in our cars yet. based on what our oval guys ran with the sintered rotor in the 13.5, they were almost on the tail end/closing in on what 19T brushed run.
prior to the 13.5BL releasing, there is a track in Illinois where testing was done in oval pan cars. they also tested a 14.5, 16.5, etc. one racer told me that he felt the 16.5BL was the closest to a 27T brushed...in a oval car.
i don't know where sedans with the 13.5, and other BL winds were tested at? obviously the 13.5 was selected when it came down to it.
SWTour in California has been testing different Novak BL winds, from what i've read...i beleive they are going to go with a 17.5BL
