thanks!
where are you taking the temp? wire side or pinion side?
on mine.. I'm getting the same temp on the wire side..
on the pinion side it will be alot hotter... I was getting like 180-190+degF.
and did not have any thermal issues..

i was told by orion techs that the 3.5 vortex has a 190 degree limit, but im sure they quoted me that number to be on the safe side, but anyway im pretty sure all the vortex motors are about the same, so my guess for the 10.5 would also be 190 degrees.

My 4,5T with LRP TC and 4300 IB's (Rubber / Tarmac) goes up to 149 to max. 175. The last figure only when I pushed very hard.

I advanced the timing to my 10.5 a few degrees.. the car is a rocket.

I used Eagle Racing's new SP motor heatsink and fan....
the fan actually works on the this than the others..

Is the Novak heatsink a direct fit?

Can someone please explain the differences you will find in the optional rotors on offer for the GM/ORION Vortex motors.

the smaller diameter rotor you have the more rpm you will get. but your motor will run less torque than original rotor.

yes, personnaly I use a GM 4T with 12.5mm rotor and I have a better feeling than with the 13.5mm.
It gives less dragbrake also.
Oscar told us this weekend at the euro that last batch of his motor swill have smaller diameter rotor inside.

It's interesting they're going in that direction while Novak is moving toward trying larger rotors.

i think Novak come bigger size rotor is they want their motor runing more efficiency. is not mistake the original rotor size are 12.2mm which is even small than 12.5mm
