I'm sending in my 13.5 today for repair.
One of the sensor wires got pinched off. The wires are fairly exposed and have no protection from being pinched against the end of the motor in a crash. The only protection is a thin rubber grommet. So thin that it was gone pretty quick.
I think it could have been designed with a bit more protection. Better yet a user replaceable wire harness/plug system like the Orion motors. Novak seems to be good about improving their products so I hope this is something they look at. The same exact thing has happened to a couple other guys at the local track.
It's going to cost 46 bucks to get it replaced; that's half the price of a new motor. ARrrrrgggg.
Has anyone done anything to protect or cushion this area?
