The other one is probaly the same one that Castle is using in their system.

right guys help me out here, why do brushless motors have to use 380 sized internals to be legal?? doesnt seem fair to me, but perhaps im missing something, cheers for your help,

from the Trinity website "Trinity has let the battle of the brushless formats (sensor & sensor less) duke it out before releasing Feigao's C-Series BL motor B-Class series of Brushless racing motors for 1/12th, Touring, and Off-Road/Monster trucks. The “C-Series BL motor B-Class” series features the trouble free sensor less technology which also affords the use of a variety of speed controls like the Castle Creations Mamba Max and similar models from M-tronics, Tekin etc.. With Feigao's brushless you are not locked into one speed control model. As speedo technology changes you will be able to pick and choose the model that you prefer like the sensored brushless systems. Because we decided to go the sensor less route Feigao were able to make fast motors for each racing discipline right off the bat. Brushless is a small class and instead of killing it with a new “Faster” model each week Feigao made a fast model you could use for the current classes
right out of the box."

$5 says the next BL ESC from Reedy and Novak will work in both sensored and sensorless modes.

also:
If the rotor is sintered then it's not roar legal.
The Trinity website says "sintered balanced rotor".
Therefore it is not ROAR legal. (for 2006)

and

If it's 380 size externally then it's not roar legal.
The Trinity website says "utilizing a compact package...weight reduction over other 540 sized brushless motors" (seems to say "smaller than 540")
Therefore it is not ROAR legal.

Is this correct?

Since Ernie is on the electric IFMAR committee for ROAR, it'll be legal next year most likely.

Will the LRP and Novak ESC work with Sensor or Sensorless motors?

Well Trinity is releasing their new brushless motor "Brushless DUO MOTOR" which is pretty much a Orion Vortex motor (made by speedpassion).

I think you will find they are manufactured by Feigio, SP was just the first one to distribute them successfuly. Orion and GM just too slow to get to market.
