I'd been running the novak brushless in my 1/12th CRC BK and T-fource for 1/12th 4 cel mod.
It was a bit of a chore to shoe-horn it in. Definite weight penalty over non-BL, but the lack of maintenance really made it a hoot (even if not quite as fast as the guys running 10 doubles in 1/12th mod).
Now I'm considering the upcoming Sphere and NEO brushless combo..
1) Will the sphere be 4 cel happy?
2) Is the NEO motor smaller than the Novak's? The Novak *barely* fit in the CRC motor pod.
3) Have they given a definite release date on either each? I'm guessing they aren't going to make the christmas deadline
(as a manufacturer in the paintball industry.. I know what an ouch this is. We've been busting our arses the last 3 months trying to be ready).
4) Anyone know the weight of the NEO vs. a standard brushed mod? I'm guessing the sphere will be close in weight to normal speed controls...
tia & cheers,
