Default Novak Pro Racing Brushless Systems

Just found this on RCCA
NOVAK’S NEW SS PRO RACING MOTORS AND SYSTEMS
Based on Novak’s Velociti-Series Racing brushless motors, Novak is pleased to announce its new SS Pro-Series racing brushless motors. The SS Pro-Series is available in three motor winds:
> 3408 SS8.5 Pro Brushless Motor which is 8.5 turns, and similar to a 15-17-turn mild-modified brush motor
> 3410 SS10.5 Pro Brushless Motor which is 10.5 turns, and similar to a 19-turn brush motor
> 3413 SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless Motor which is 13.5 turns, and similar to a 27-turn racing stock brush motor

Although the #3413 SS13.5 is not a new motor, this popular stock brushless motor has received several new upgrades including a Novak sintered rotor, and will now be known as the SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless Motor. Other good news is that each SS Pro Series motor will be offered in a combo system factory-wired with a GTB Racing Programmable Brushless/Brush ESC. Novak brushless systems include everything to be race-ready, out of the box, so there is nothing extra to buy or install.
> 3008 GTB/SS8.5 Pro Brushless System
> 3010 GTB/SS10.5 Pro Brushless System
> 3013 GTB/SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless System

To address the popular 4-cell brushless racing classes, the SS10.5 Pro and the SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless Motors will also be offered in a combo system factory-wired with a GTB 4-Cell Racing Programmable Brushless/Brush ESC:
> 3040 GTB 4-Cell/SS10.5 Pro Brushless System
> 3043 GTB 4-Cell/SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless System

SS13.5 UPGRADES & STANDARD SS PRO MOTOR FEATURES
The #3413 SS13.5 received several new upgrades for improved performance. The first upgrade to the SS13.5, and a standard feature of the SS Pro Series, is the Novak ROAR-approved, Nickel-plated Sintered Neodymium rotor. The rotor is the same high-performance rotor that the Velociti 3.5R motor currently features. The rotor is ideal for use with any and all applications and provides many benefits, including:
> Significantly increased magnetic strength for improved throttle feel
> Improved, stronger motor braking power
> Improved performance in higher temperature conditions
> Improved motor acceleration and power
> Higher efficiency
> Lower current draw
> Nickel-plated for a long lasting, smooth, clean finish
> ROAR approved

The second upgrade to the SS13.5, and a standard feature of the SS Pro Series, is the set of ribbed aluminum end bells. The lightweight aluminum end bells not only make the overall weight of the motor lower, but the ribbed design also acts as a heat sink by efficiently removing excessive heat from the motor.
The last upgrade to the SS13.5 is the orange timing ring located on the rear end bell. The color-coded, non-removable, non-replaceable timing ring will be of great assistance to race directors and officials in ensuring the correct motor is used during racing. The timing ring is a visibly easy way to check that racers’ are compliant with race rules. The SS10.5 Pro features a blue timing ring located on the rear end bell.

ADDITIONAL SS PRO MOTOR FEATURES
The SS Pro brushless motors will be equipped with all of the great standard features found on all Novak motors, including: a convenient Solder Tab System for easy wire replacement; Sensor-Based Technology for excellent starting torque, low-speed drivability, and smooth acceleration; the same Oversized Front Bearing used in Novak’s Velociti-series motors that is more rugged, extra durable, and helps extend motor life; and Thermal Overload Protection (when used with a Novak brushless ESC) that allows pack after pack to be run without fear of damaging the motor, battery, or speed control.

ESC COMPATIBILITY
The SS8.5 Pro, SS10.5 Pro, and SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless Motors are compatible with all Novak brushless ESCs, including:
> 1705 Super Sport Plus ESC
> 1710 GTB Programmable Brushless/Brush ESC
> 1714 GTB 4-Cell Programmable Brushless/Brush ESC
> 3006 original Super Sport ESC that’s included in the Super Sport Stock Brushless System (10.5)

RECOMMENDATIONS
To find out which motor or motor system is best suited for you, Novak has the following recommendations:
4-6 CELL BRUSHLESS SYSTEMS:
> 3008 GTB/SS8.5 Pro Brushless System—this system is the perfect brushless system for use with sport battery packs and entry-level equipment. It is also ideal for off-road racing and general applications.
> 3010 GTB/SS10.5 Pro Brushless System—this system is ideal for use in “SS4300 class” races with performance similar to 19-turn brush motor.
> 3013 GTB/SS13.5 Pro Brushless System—this system is ideal for use in Stock class races with performance similar to a 27-turn stock brush motor. Its lower speeds provide better vehicle control for newer drivers, and longer run-times for those wanting to get valuable “practice” time on the track.
4 CELL BRUSHLESS SYSTEMS:
> 3040 GTB 4-Cell/SS10.5 Pro Brushless System—this system is ideal for use in the 4-cell Brushless Racing League (BRL) “Pro 4300 class” races.
> 3043 GTB 4-Cell/SS13.5 Pro Brushless System—this system is ideal for use in the 4-cell Brushless Racing League (BRL) “13.5 class” races.

RETAIL PRICE INFORMATION
> 3408 SS8.5 Pro Brushless Motor $129
> 3410 SS10.5 Pro Brushless Motor $129
> 3413 SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless Motor $129
> 3008 GTB/SS8.5 Pro Brushless System $444
> 3010 GTB/SS10.5 Pro Brushless System $444
> 3013 GTB/SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless System $444
> 3040 GTB 4-Cell/SS10.5 Pro Brushless System $444

Hey, cool, that's great news. I figured the 4300 and 5800 were long overdue for an upgrade.

Finally, I was wondering how long it would take somebody to do that... Now I wonder if Orion when they come out with their esc if they will do the same. I really need more money....

I like that they've gone to the turn designation for the motor names as opposed to the 4300, 5800 stuff. Price looks good to considering what you had to pay to get what it comes with now. Good move Novak.

I'm more than happy at that price.
Sintered rotor 30.00
Lightweight end bells approx 20.00.>>>?
Up graded end bell with large bearing. 20.00
Approx. 70.00 value at about 35.00 over its stock version cost.
That's guesstimating and at track side prices, It will cost around 100.00.
Now close your eye's NOVAK, but syndrOme has been running that very motor for a year, without a back up one at least once a week pretty much.
Some how I think SyndrOme will get a new one? Or at least a back up.
That motor will not wear out!

I read that this is comming on this forum and still bought the 13.5 and the 4300 then I blew $80 to upgrade them hate waitin' and I read so much about these motors so I had to try them... very happy so far.

By the way the lightwieght endbell is 3g (0.1oz) lighter than the stock 4300. I just measured it yesterday.
