So what you guys thinking is 1/12th with 13.5 a lot faster than brushed stock?

That seems to be the case. I don't know if it's because the motors are more efficient and you can gear up without worry of dumping, or because the lighter cars are easier to move, and can handle more gear before they get bogged down. Maybe it's a little of both.

Definetly yes. Just look at how fast they were at the Omaha race. They pulled out of the corners and really made the guys running brushed work hard to stay in front.

I would say in your hands definetly alot faster!

Well fellas I tried the sintered in a 4300 class and I geared up from a 36.5 to an almost 39.0 and ran a 27 lap pace same as last week, I geared down every round and and geared back up for the main just couldn't beat a 27 flat pace.
Anyhow heres the kicker. Our local hot shot did a 28-5:03 sintered 13.5, And our fast local did a 28-5:03 with a 4300 WOW! you would have to see it to believe IT! So theres a monkey wrench HUH?
Any how 1 more week and I'll know more he wouldn't tell me his roll out he said he didn't know it. Yeah right! Next week I'll strong arm his roll out out of him. He was driving a xxxs.

Yep, stronger magnet, more resistance. It's going to sound slow if you run it without a pinion on. It's not. The sintered rotor has a lot lower unloaded RPMs, but it generates plenty of speed once you gear it right.

Yeah much stronger magnet. When I was putting mine in someone gave me some wise advice. They said really hold onto it b/c it is much stronger and you dont want it to smash the circuit board at the bottom of the can.

Correct, that's why the instructions that come with the Sintered Rotor tell you to use the plastic tube that it came in as a guide inside the motor itself, you insert the tube first, then the rotor, so when it goes in, it won't stray & bang into any of the tiny electronic goodies inside.....

I know what you mean, my 13.5 is one of the first batch to come with the sintered rotor already installed(got it at the Novak race), but my local track only allows it to be run WITHOUT it(original rotors only), so I had to buy one, & the tube that comes in is too big to fit in the can, so I just have to be VERY careful when switching them around.....

It's alot easier to hold onto with a pinion on it.
