Default 13.5 rotor seperated

I have a novak 13.5 brushless motor that the rotor seperated and slid off the end of the shaft. (it's in one piece, like a drum) I was wondering how they are bonded together? Or do I need to buy a new rotor? Motor temp is only 95 degrees after a 6 minute race. So I know it's not getting too hot. Can I use jb weld to put it back together?
thanks

I never heard of that happening. And lately Novak hasn't been to concerned with customer service.

I'm pretty sure that rotor is shot.

Yeah, i think THIN CA can fix it. put plenty on, and slide the magnet on. let it cure for plenty of time, and dont use accelerant, it wont make as strong a bond.

it should hold, just try to ease into the throttle smoothly rather than slamming. it probably came off from rapid acceleration.


hope it helps! Cheers!

yep! tunes had the same thing. I felt the rotor and it feels like epoxy or somethong like it was used. As for getting on the throtal easy,,,,not going to happin... I race on a small tight blue grouve track. I need the punch. I'm going to try JB Weld. It's used for high heat applications. I'm ordering a new rotor but I'm going to see how this works. Thanks for the help guys.
