Sintered rotors?

All of Novak's GTB/Velociti combos come with sintered rotors and have for some time. Novak has a better reliability record and good service here in the US. I don't know how smooth a LRP must be but the Novaks I have used for the last 2.5 years are all (I have 3) extremely smooth. The throttle curve on any speed control can be adjusted and controlled with the exponential adjustment on the transmitter. My non sintered rotor 6.5's (also 2.5 years old) are still too strong for both 4wd and stadium trucks I have them in my opinion. The Novak GTB is the overwhelming favorite speed contron in my area and I have never once seen one go bad, ever. The GTB's footprint with the big power cap is larger but I can live with it to know that these will last longer than I care to keep them.



I pay for all my Novak stuff.

I would probably run either a 5.5 or 6.5 myself.

In addition to the sintered rotor the Orion motors have a detachable sensor wire, not having to re-route that mess of wires every time you take the motor out is a major plus. Orion also sells different lengths of sensor wires so you can make the wiring job as neat as possible, another plus, especially for 4wd. Oh yeah, I'm sure the built in cooling fan would be of some benefit in a wheeler where airflow to the motor is restricted. The 6.5 Vortex in my truck never tops 100*. As far as I can tell there really is no other choice.
