You should set the esc in NiMh mode and not Nimh/lipo.

sirs,

can the new novak brushless motors e.g. velociti 6.5 sintered and above work with the LRP brushless+brushed version of the sphere esc? the manual states that it can handle motors 5.5 turns and up. am not just sure if it could handle the new brushless motors from novak. thanks in advance

Hi all.... anyone can help?

BUT, I am missing on the drag brake which brushed motor can offer.

Have been fiddling with the 'automatic brake' mode on the sphere. From 0 - 6, still achieve no drag brake. What I need to do to achieve some form of brushed mot feel?

1) Have I been fiddling with the wrong mode? I am sure the Sphere can offer much more. Please help!

(the folllowing two questions will digress a little from the thread topic)

2) i think the one-way plays a part in this. Is it not advisable to use one-way for BL motor?
3) Do I have to use spool or direct coupling? What is the difference anyway?

Thanks!

Yeap i think that it will work ok , will you use sensor?? , i don't know if novak velociti 6.5 can handle sensor that's why i am asking!!

Answer to :

1) yeah it can offer much more brake , but with sintered magnets that 5.5T and lower, uses.
2) of course spool or diff can change the feel of the brake , but is something more than advise or anything... it's up to you what you will use. Something that will fit your track , and your driving style.

3) you don't HAVE to use anything , as i said above!! which difference??

Then it should be ok , the only thing that it may not be safe is using it without the sensorwire , but now it will be ok..

so would it be ok to use an external schotky diode when running a brished motor with the sphere tc? i plan to solder one of the novak super schotkys directly to my 27T motor tabs. would appreciate any info on this. thanks!

I`v been running a x-11 for a few month`s now ..

It started to get bit noisy , making a kind of grinding noise....

So I took it apart and discovered the pinion side ball bearing had seen better days ...
so...
I replace both bearing`s with new ones and it is nice and quiet again ...

Like brand new motor again....

Hi, this may be the wrong thread to post this. But just a short question.

My Eraser 9.5T is not turning smoothly, seems a bearing or two is loose. Thought of taking it apart to check, but after removing the 3 back screws and I dont see any other screws keeping the motor together. Any idea on how to fully disassemble this baby?

Please help!
