Looks cool but why is it slotted from front to back?

What is the diffrence between the 1.5y and 2d? Looks cool. I have always liked Novak motors. Excited to see the reviews on this motor.

Yea but in any rear motor car such as your xxx-cr the motor is mounted left to right so these slots dont do anything. And most cars that have the motor front to back have the motor inside the body also doing nothing

1.5y 1950KV
2D 2650Kv

I'm guessing 2650 is for buggy and 1950 is for truggy.

just speculating here I'm sure a Novak rep will come by and clarify for us .

These are 1/8th scale motors, so I doubt you'll put one in any rear motor car.

Yeah the weight alone would pull the front tires off the ground unless you put on a pound of weight on the front end!

Most of the 1/8th scale applications will use a longitudinally Mounted motor which even with being in the car you will have air holes in the body that will better use that airflow. I can see a cooler in the future that would mount to the rear to glow air across the motor to keep height restrictions low.

Default good to go

I have been running the y wrap for almost a yr now. I was able to get one before they were released. I run it in a losi 8ight with a rx 8 on 4s. It is super efficient , great run times and is happy as a clam coming off at 170-180 all day long. Bearing life has been a non issue, smooth as silk like all novaks sensored motors are. Only issue was trying to fit it into my tekno motor mount. It was a no fit due to the larger mount tunnels for the end bell screws. Fits fine in the losi mount.

This the best working 1/8 scale motor I have run, the castles 2650 is a caveman brute lots of power but not smooth or fully useable, the tekin was close , but could not handle the gearing and came off too hot and showed early bearing wear.

the ballistic is the bomb.
