I noticed the weight of the car is pretty heavy 1530gm+. Has there been attempts to remove the extra heatsink and reduce the weight? Any performance issue with that?

Please release information on the Orion website! Very interested with this rocket system!

Kenneth,
Well, you can take the heatsink off, but the cooler the speedo is, the more efficient it will run. It does not weight that much anyway, 8gr maybe....

Anyway, the system worked great at the nordics, no problems what so ever!
Top speed was 64 kmh (geared 11.25), that is really fast on a small carpet track

I wonder how fast it would have gone outdoors..... too much snow right now

The feeling both on and off power was really smooth and the brakes felt perfect!

secretsg,
5.8V/4A BEC is really good, cant ask for more than that!!

Just installed my new brushless.
It's a tight fit, but this will not be a problem for too long, as I will run it with 6 cells just to see how scary fast it is and then it will be always run with 5 cells as per the new European (EFRA) rules, so I will try different electronics configuration.

That car looks sweet. I appears you have found shrink wrap material of all sizes Good job with the pictures too. I really enjoy it when the photographer sets the aperture small so everything is in focus.

The system looks ace I am just wondering whether the new rules that came in for brushless at EFRA i.e delta windings and sintered magnets are they going to be available upon the release of the system. I was not sure when the new rules take affect as I am looking at using one for the start of next years summer racing season?

My motor has a Sintered Rotor right now as they have been legal in Norway all along
About the windings.... I am sure Orion will relase the fastest and best motor no matter what

So did EFRA make sintered magnets legal or not, and if they did when do they become legal is there an aloted time cause i heard somewhere that it wasn't until the end of 2007?

I think it is legal from 01.01.2007

They just removed the word "Bonded" from the rules....

My understanding is that they (sintered/delta winds) are not legal till 12 months after the meeting. So that would be November 2007. So all of next year's outdoor season would be on bonded magnets still.

There was talk of an appeal, but not sure if that is going ahead, or is likely to suceed.

I heard that it was the British BRCA representatives that opposed to allow sintered magnets for 2007. It seems that the brits want to keep the old brushed motors alive at any price. This is just stupidity and I would like to know why.

Yes, i heard the same. I haven't spoken directly to any of our guys that were there, so i don't know any more than you for the reasoning.

My understanding is that there is an EFRA rule in place somewhere that if there are any drastic changes in technology voted in, they are held off for a period to allow the trade to get rid of what they already have. Again, i'm not 100% sure.
