Nice Kev. Too bad you will miss the Warm-up race. If you want I will let you know the settings I ran that day to give you a comparison and hopefully a headstart for Novak!

Shawn . . .

you have any information about caps in that bottomless well of R/C electronics knowledge? Something along the line of appropriate values for varying demands, or perhaps high quality vs. low quality vs. size vs. cost along with some name brands an off brands?


For example I know the original spheres came with a very small cap, but now te TC spec and all the GTB's have a much larger cap. Are there higher quality caps that are smaller or is there always a direct relationship between size and cap capacity?

I know caps are rated somehow and usually a higher number means a bigger cap, but thats about where my understanding stops.

There is no substitute for understanding!

Are these the caps y'all are talking about getting in soon? They look like they aren't cylindrical . . .?? Like maybe flat?

Hi guys,

Sorry I know this has been asked before but I'm still confused

Will a SP 3.5T will work with Novak GTB? I mean the sensored cable included with the Speed Passion motor will work on the GTB ESC??

I mean the sensored cable included with the Speed Passion motor will work on the GTB ESC??

thanks, got this SP 3.5T on the way and really anxious if it'll work!!

It will work perfectly. The plugs on all sensor harneses are standard. Your GTB (or LRP Sphere, GM Genius, etc...) will run any brand of sensored motor as long as the sensor wire is connected.

Today I had my first runs with the GT and Sp 10.5 motor on my Cyclone...

Gearing: 5.18FDR Temps: 141F after 6 min heat.

results: well, set it up with the zero timing and #6 throttle profile. The car was fast and had good low end. In 2 heats today, It had real good low end, but down the straight it wasnt as fast as the the others guys like the BOwser Brothers, Tim K., D. Batiste, etc, who were running mostly Novak. That was the only issue..I needed a bit more top end...almost there!!( my driving didnt help)

1) Gearing: The gearing tells me I can try one more tooth on the Pinion, but the temps will get higher...I like the 10.5 motors to run in the 140-145F range, and the Novak and Orion 10.5 i have tried performed real well at those temps and were a bit faster than my SP 10.5 today...

2) ESC settings: I can try using timing on the ESC, maybe 3.75 deg option or something else...if anyone has played with this please let us know what timing gives the best result. Incresing the throttle profile from 6 to 7 or 8 might do it, but this might also increase temps, as it happens w/ LRP Sphere TC. I dont mind getting 160F temps as long as it wont kill the motor...

Any other suggestions?

Anyone run GT and SP 10.5 today? What setings did you use and what FDR and how did it fare against other systems?

Hello Guys, My son Austin ran the SP 4.5 and the 10.5 today on a fast big track.Ran 4.5 with same FDR and ESC settings, new CS 27 the same for all 3 motors. 4.5 was overall much Faster than are other mod motors we ran. The 10.5 was just fast. Blows out all other 10.5 in my opinion. We tested 4different type of 10.5 motors. PW setup, EP 4600, All in All great propuct. Thanks Ron Harrison,

If you ran Zero timing (AMTS Setting #1) you were way under timed and probably under geared. I ran my Novak 10.5 at 4.8 FDR and it didnt get too hot.

I would leave the gearing the same (5.18) as start walking the timing up to the default setting of #6 (18.75*). Don't worry about temps until you get close to 180*F.
