Hey Marcos J., what size track are you running that 4.96fdr on? What's the grip like. My Schuie should be done pretty soon and I have the SS10.5 in it.

The system on Tower is the new one with sintered rotor. The GTB/SS Pro Systems were never offered with the earlier bonded rotors. Tower has not properly updated the motor copy to include the sintred rotor/ribbed endbell info.

What is more interesting is LRP are seeming to agree with roar, they are about to produce a line of locked timing stock equivalent brushless motors that they suggest will be able to go head to head with 27t and 19t.

They say a 15.5 is equiv to 27t
13.5 = 23t
10.5 = 19t
9.5 = 17t

I hope these manufs start to get together and work out what really is equivalent so they can run in the same classes without more diversification of drivers into more classes.

We have a guy at our club who has gone to a 13.5 for the reasons described above, no motor maintenance and he can spend time setting up his car (more like fixing it after he breaks it ), but he has so much more power than most of the 19t's so has been put in with the mod's, he said himself, he wondered how long he would get away with it...

Hooley dooley!!! I was going to ask a FDR question until I'd read the last three pages, Just put my old school 13.5 (used twice in my xxx4g+) into my TA05 and thought it was quick at 6.85! (yes, I'm new to this) Your temps are in F right? I should be able to gear this baby heaps harder... (outdoor, ashphalt has some tight stuff and open flowing sections)

Just want to get some practise in with it in my old car till the BL mount gets here for my Cyclone. What a trip, I can't wait to see this thing geared correctly...

Default Maintenance

I recently converted from 27T brushed ... bought the SS13.5 Pro system ... awsome

Read all the Novak manuals and noticed nothing mentioned about maintenance. Is any maintenance required on these motors

Thanks

Cool temperature and gear ratio

been racing the novak 13.5 ,8 meetings all inside ,carpet track,cs22& vtec 24tires, averaging a temperature of 105f after 5 mins on a gear ratio of 5/1 fdr . raced on a tighter track layout at 5.4/1 fdr temperature was 110f after 5mins. temperature gun is a hpi unit. sound about right to you guys?

Yup, sounds just fine, I'd only worry about gearing for best lap times(gearing to suit available space), with the sintered rotor, the only thing you might notice when overgeared is it may not accelerate as well as it could. Just gear it so it tops out close to the end of the longest straight & you should be good to go.....

njt,

Those temps are a tad low in my book. Which ESC and car do you have? Are you doing temp readings on the ESC too? How long have you been racing? What class are you running? Novice/Sportsman/Expert? Is anyone killing you at the end of your longest straight? Sorry, for all the questions; but, I think your answers will help us make valid comments.

Bill

Im the new guy at my club and I run the SS13.5 pro in my Touring car. It is way mor epowerful than a brushed stock motor.

The car used to be geared at 3.98 FD and it was literally a land missile
It would make a 5 minute race and come off @ 180 F, any longer and the thing would thermal and shutdown at 211 F

I have since geared down to 4.29 FD and now I hit about 140 F after a 5 minute race and I can cruise for 10-15 minutes and measure about 170 F.

Geared at 4.29 FD I can slightly pull on a 19t sedan
