Thanks for all the help.....Again the reason I initially asked the question was to help me decide to either use my Novak 17.5 motor that I ran from Short course which seemed "slow" when compared to other 17.5 trucks with the same gearing.
I was planning on running that same motor in a blinky touring class at a local carpet track and was unsure of the proper way to go. Also if it was possible to economically change just the stator for $35, or spend the $85. However when I ran at that track today, I received alot
of good tips from the racers at the track, and I just decided to go with a new motor.
Thanks for the positive input.
