It would be nice if there was some competition for the last few races.

Back on topic, superb brushless motors.

After driving brushless it feels different in 2wd but not so much in 4wd to me. Very smooth and not as punchy but very free rolling smooth. I think i liked it cause i like my car free rolling and smooth. i have bever tried the novak only the lrp sphere.

I had the same rubbing/rattling noise when I first got mine, it turned out that the motor screws were slightly too long.
Which was strange because they are the same screws I have used on every brushed/brushless motor, but it is due to the fan.

I had that happen in my 4wd as well. I caught it before I ran the car though.

Does the Novak GTB run this motor good? I still have very little experience with brushless. I have a 4.5 in my 4wd, but I have not ran it much. I need to get a 10.5 or 13.5 for my B4 as well as a 7.5 for it.

Not the motors fault. My old Yokomo required long screws and the ones I had were just a little too long. Fits like a champ in my Lazer and RB5.

So its the mounting screws on the motor plate ? This crunchy one i drove was a rb5. Seems like it happens in a small percentage of these vortex 10.5's.

I'll probably get one but i will flip sheet if it is crunchy.

Keep an eye on the motor can screws as well (both inboard and outboard). Sometimes if they loosen a bit the motor will sound "crunchy".

Funny stuff, haha. Congrats Kimi!

The Orion sensored motors are the fastest available. They require a little more tending than the Novak or LRP due to their open design, but I think the performance is more than worth it.

Do you gear the Orion motors differently than the Novak motors?
