As long as you get what you pay for it does not really matter if it cost a litle more IMO.

I finally got my system today and I must say it looks really good

Will hit the track tomorrow and do some testing, can hardly wait!!

Here's a couple of pictures:

Also we have seen lowering the amount in turns in brushed motors in the last years since the amount of mah became higher and higher. What will happen to the new brushless motors when they have reached the 1 turn? Massive windings?
they made the change?

Yes, it's very neat and the venting holes should definitely help with cooling!

Also, High performance capacitors from Nichicon came with the controller.
Those have incredibly low IR, 8mOhm, Amazing!!

Unhappy

What is the ratio for this motor on its own esc and also on the GTB esc? I've tried various gear ratio from 8.0 to 10.0 fdr but could only get about 4minutes of runtime with both esc.Would like to try ratio higher than 10.0 to get the 5minute runtime but once i tried to gear the ratio above 9.5 the motor runs alot slower than my Novak 3.5 so i dont see the point of doing it.
Help?!

I have run this 3.5 motor geared 10.5 with a GTB and Orion/GM speedo and it is very fast. At least as fast as factory Novak driver using 3.5/GTB.

BTW, with GTB I used 10% drag brake.

Perhaps your batteries are the problem?

I was watching someone run the orion brushless system and it was lightning fast. He was a pro driver and couldent even get to full throttle when he first tried it.

I tested the system on a small indoor carpet track, geared 12.0 and went flat out for 7 min with IB4200SHV, oh man that was fun!!
Silly fast and no heat issues at all, this was really amazing!!

Next up is the Nordic Indoor Championships this weekend and I am really looking forward to that now
