The wires in the sensor harnesses for (at least) Novak, LRP, Orion and Peak Performance are designed to be a direct fit---needing no adapters.

The Novak Velociti 3.5T is legal for ROAR racing. The 3.5T was the first V series motor released with the sintered rotor, which--at that time--had not been ROAR approved.

Now that the sintered rotors have been approved, all of the current Novak Velociti (and SS Pro) motors have been upgraded with factory-installed, sintered rotors.

Best thing to do would be spend some money on a more capable car than the TT01, get one where the shaft isn't plastic, and is designed for powerful motors.

The 3.5 is a very powerful motor and the TT01 wasn't designed for it. The plastic dogbones will twist, the diffs would lose a lot of power etc etc.

The amound of $$$ you would need to make it suitable would be more than the cost of a new car.

Alternatively lost at least 1 or even 2 cells off the batteries and then it may work, although the torque will stil be very hard on the drivetrain
