Even though it has an aluminum andbell, the new reedy motor still has 90 degree brushes. Correct. The best part of the V2 isn't just the endbell, it is how all of the pieces are put together. The only time I had my V2 overheat was on a track where I didn't judge the corners too good and had to use the brakes too often. I just dialed out the brakes and threw on a Novak ss diode. Never de-soldered the wires again. I even tried to overheat it by using brakes.
The novak unit has worked wonders for a few of my friends also.
In my 17 years of RC experience and 5 years of competitive racing, I have seen a lot of new and exciting products come out. It can't hurt anyting when someone tries something new to make their product better. Even if only helps one person.
The bottom line is, I have had my a$$ handed to me by all major motor manufacturers at the track. If it makes the Ti based motors better, that's cool. I want one.
