I'm currently running a Sphere with 16 guage wire on a 13.5 sintered motor for 1/12th scale. The power cap is just tucked where it fits best. I haven't needed to run a receiver pack so I can't help with that.

Mark, have a word with Keith - he took a pic of my car at Plymouth with it fitted. If i get chance this week, i'll try and drop it back in and take a pic and mail it to you. I ran the cap as it came.

As for reciever pack - it's no problem. Just leave esc switched off and switch pack on.

See attached. I actually got it a little cleaner looking this weekend (shortened the servo and speedo wires and used orings instead of zip ties around the motor wires) but don't have pics of that just yet. You could easily run a receiver pack on the receiver side where I have the lead. It would help balance out the car also.

Lighter wires are presumably ok? And I assume the power cap is left on, and tucked away somewhere neat ;-)

I've fitted a Novak GTB before, so have some experience of fitting the power and sensor wires.

And any tips on running a receiver pack with that speedo?

Cheers,
Mark

Default Stock brushless motor?

It might be the best you check with your countries LRP distributer, you can find their contacts at www.lrp.cc

@nnick: read my posts mate...
We're already shipping TC-Spec's since last week, it might take 2-3 more weeks until all backorders are fullfilled tough but we're regularily sending them out now.
Hi Burito,
Sorry to bug you. I just wonder if LRP has any plan to make a brushless motor similar to the Novak 13.5 that is stock equivalent?
Reply when you can. There is no hurry. I am still in thinking stage of transition.

LRP does have 13.5 motors, in fact they have 2 motors. One is in the Vector X-11 line and one in their Eraser budget line.

Thanks jrighter - the soldering iron will be on tonight, and that helps me thing about placing and wiring.

Cheers Matt - I mean to ask at the 19-turn GP, but racing got in the way! You'll see the results on Sunday ;-)

Thanks
Mark

Hello guys,

Can you please tell me if my LRP Competiton will hold the new x11 4,5T motor.

Burito is currently at the TITC, so he cannot watch this thread all the time. I will try to help out a bit.

Thanks
No, the receiver pack is not necessary unless you are running on 4-cells and your battery dumps at the end of the heat. Then a receiver pack can be handy, because your receiver won´t be effected by the low BEC voltage caused by the dumping battery.

No, there is no shottky diode necessary.

You start with sub-light speed then move on to light speed, followed by ridiculous speed and finally your frog reaches ludicrous speed. Be sure to use a seat belt for your own safety before reaching ludicrous speed.

Yes, this will work, but be sure to use a fan on the heatsink.

Best regards,

If you do ever throw the 4.5 in it.. you'd better have some friends standing around with a video. And then you'd better post it here!!

(Might be a good idea to bring a box with you.. for .. the "parts" left over afterwards.. )

Smile Thanks

Thanks andsetinn.

I presume the LRP Vector X-11 is also ROAR approved just like the Novak 13.5!?

I have also just looked at LRP website and they only list 4.5 to 7.5 turns for the Vector X11 line. Cannot find the Eraser line. What are the actual part numbers? Who is selling them online or in Australia where I am?
