i love my 4star. but its onroad. the offroad ones are built the exact same way though. only less turns. and i love it. im considering getting one for my race truck. incredibly tunable and easy to work with. never had a problem

I think I read somewhere that the Neo's have adjustable timing. If that's true have any of you tried changing the timing? I wonder what the effect would be like compared to a brushed motor.

Maybe I`m wrong , but I don`t believe you can adjust the timing on the Neo even though there are timing marks on the can .

it can change the timing. but all it does is change the rpm difference. leave the motor were it is set on timing and change the gear ratio. it doesnt mess up the motor as bad. if you gear it right, then the motor should be great in all conditions on the stock timing. dont change the timing, it doesnt do much and screws the motor.

street racer , I`v tried, you can`t adjust the endbell on a Neo like a brush motor .
Maybe you know how and I don`t ?

Let me know...

lossen the 3 screws on the endbell about half way. then look at the black ring that is touching the can. not the plate on the far back or the plate that connects the wires, but the ring in between the wire plate and the can. take a small flathead screwdriver and put it into one of the small notches and push it towards the number you want the notch to line up with. thats the new timing. im pretty sure that the lower the number, the more bottom end rpm power it has and the higher the number the less low rpm power, but im not sure.

make sure you change your gearing when you change the timing though. otherwise you will fry your motor. im pretty sure that the higher you set the timing the higher you need your gear ratio to be. im nto sure what the actual settings are though. the stock setting of 2 on timing with about a 9.5 final drive ratio should be great for all conditions. i can drift and race on my settings. so be careful changing timing, im nto sure if warranty covers it.

I have a Neo 3 Star installed in my BJ4-WE and using the Sphere Comp ESC (w/supplied capacitor).

I was very happy with the performance but after only 2 weeks the rotor failed. The cylindrical magnet which is supposed to be permanently fixed on the shaft actually moved. Keep in mind that I take very good care of my equipment:
- Not running it for more than 5 minutes without a break
- Checking motor, esc and battery temperatures often
- Making sure the buggy rolls freely without any drag on the driveline

The good news is that within 7-10 days of returning the motor to Associated they shipped me a brand new replacement unit.
The explanation was that there was a small batch of rotors produced that had a manufacturers defect.
Associated handled this issue well and I would not hesitate to recommend or buy another one.

I have not a problem with the replacement motor.

P.S. The nice thing about the Sphere comp ESC is that I was able to install a brushed motor while I was waiting for the Neo to return.

3 star in a buggy? must have been a strange gear ratio for the buggy or else you had a very smooth surface. i didnt think the 3 star was built for offroad racing though?
