Hello Guys,
One Fast Question, I am running the 2007 edition with 4.5T, i can get my hands on a 3.5T motor, do you think that i will have a problem with the 2007 edition????? or i have to wait for the TC before i race with the the 3.5T??
Also what is the difference in the gear ration between 4.5T and 3.5T.

From memory: press brake for couple of seconds after the run. Turn off the esc. On the pit, turn on the esc WHILE pressing MODE buton. Count the number of flashes. Every flash over 5 means 8șC bellow thermal shutdown. Last time i checked counted 15 flashes. So, 15-5=10 flashes. 10x8= 80șC bellow thermal shutdown

BTW, that was with X11 4.5, geared to 8.1 on large track. air temp around 18șC

I now have the LRP Sphere Comp 2007 (from Hong Kong) with my Novak 13.5 (original version with adjustable timing) in my carpet RDX.

At the Region 12 carpet championships this past weekend, this combination was unbelieveably fast. My car was noticeably faster than my competitors in Brushless 13.5 class on the 96' long back straight and still had plenty of poop in the infield.

Finished second to a really good sponsored driver. Waaaay above where I normally would finish with these guys. Love this combo. Goodbye brushed motors.

According to Charlie from Novak, nothing has changed with the timing ring other than the color.

I thought I read on the 13.5 string that the new red ring has locked timing.

From this thread:

Turn the timing all the way up, the motor gets hotter, turn it all the way down, it stays cooler. These are Not Huge changes. It's like gearing up or down a tooth for the most part.

BL motor timing is NOT as effective as regular motor timing. This will be very hard for people to beleive and already assume we're lying, but many guys have experimented with this under controlled conditions and have come to the same conclusions we have.

The timing setup is no different on ANY of the Novak motors. They all have the same adjustments. The statemetns about the colored rings are for indentification, not to state they are not adjustable.

Now you're right, there is "some" effect of timing, but its' not enough to make the motor any faster. It is very similar like gearing up a half tooth, or gearing down a half tooth. Power of the motor is the power of the motor, the timing in BL simply moves the max torque and RPM around a little bit.

In the Faster motors like the 3.5 and 4.5 there may be more effect of the timing, but not from what I've seen working with racers/drivers/customers.

Adrian, if you'd like to actually know why the motors are different, feel free to email us anytime. You can always ask us directly instead. We're only an email away. Its not always about who's the fastest. The two motors are designed differently, going after different things. I'm sure you've heard alot, but get some facts when you can.

But let's not get off topic on the 13.5 in this Sphere Competition thread. Instead, continue the 13.5 conversation in the New 13.5 Pro thread.
