For what it's worth....

I have seen someone run the Novak 10.5 and then come out the next weekend with an Orion 10.5 and was a LOT faster with the Orion.

...the driver...

In all seriousness though, most of the guys here in Aus are using Novak, however the Speedpassion motors seem to have the goods.

Cheers,

While there will be slight differences between brands of motors i think the biggest factor will be batteries and the driver.
Brushless ahs and will definately even the playing field.
Once Lipo becomes teh norm it will will come down to setup and driving .

Was the Novak the Sintered version?

The standard Novak only has the bonded rotor, which will be around 30W less powerfull.

The Orion Vortex's are all Sintered (according to their site)
