if it is not a black label with a red star and a number on it, then it is the original reedy neo which is a 3-star.

the 1,2, & 4 star have a black label with the number designation written on a red star...

Does anybody know the actual number of turns in the different Neo 1 motors? I can't find it documented anywhere. The number of turns Reedy lists are the equivalent in a brushed motor. It's hard to make a direct comparison with Novak motors without that information.

Actually, he didn't wonder for the equivalent brushed turns.
According to the LRP Vector manual (Same motor) the rating and turns are:
1-Star: 8.5 Turns
2-Star: 7.5 Turns
3-Star: 6.5 Turns
4-Star: 5.5 Turns

The number of turns that Reedy/Associated has attached to the Star motors are the number of turns that each model would be similar to in a brushed motor. The original Neo-One is a 7.5 turn brushless motor. I saw somewhere else (the LRP/Neo1 thread in the on-road section I think) that gave the actual turns of these motors and I think it was:
4 Star= 4.5 turns
3 Star= 5.5 turns
2 Star= 6.5 turns
1 Star= 7.5 turns (original Neo 1)

BL motors are always wound in 1/2 turns ie. endint in .5.

Cool. For future reference, the brushless motor layout looks something like this:

Novak Brushless:
4.5R (4.5 turns)
5.5R (5.5 turns)
6.5R (6.5 turns)
7.5R (7.5 turns)
5800 (8.5 turns)
4300 (10.5 turns)

Reedy Brushless:
4-Star (5.5 turns)
3-Star (6.5 turns)
2-Star (7.5 turns)
1-Star (8.5 turns)

The sphere can use the novak brushless. Not sure on the GTB.

That does work as well (Neo1 on GTB), no problems whatsoever to mix and match between the 2 in any way.

I think your asking how long will a Neo run before it is worn out ?

I race a 3 Star for over 600 battery packs before failure occured....

Think my Neo would of lasted even longer if I had only oiled the endbell bearing...
