LOL, me too

Someone had one, and I was like, what the heck is in his car?

I love my vortex 10.5, its awesome!

How is the Orion 10.5 compared to the Novak? Anything different you need to do with gearing or timing?

Thanks guys!

Default so noise is no problem

I guess that since there's no heat or fall in performance then that must be the way it's supposed to sound.

I really can't believe the performance of my 13.5 with lipo. I was racing against 19t 4300, 10.5, etc... and it was right up there. very impressive.

anyone else have any experience with this motor and lipo?

Hi all, does anyone know where to get a replacement sensor module. I took a hit and it snapped the circuit board where you plug the sensor lead in. Apparently you can get a complete unit with the bearing etc.

thanks, john

I use a LRP TC sphere and a orion 10.5

But ask the 10 different people, and you will get the 10 different answers.......

Yup

Most people say the LRP in smoother, and some say it has more timing compared to the novak

I've always been a novak guy because of their customer service. This past few weeks I've been running the GTB spektrum I feel this ESC is very smooth compared to the first version.

Well will just wait for the new KO brushless ESC.
