So does this rotor achieve what the oval cheaters were trying to do by "sleeving" their rotors?

Syndrome,

I have never seen one of these "cheater" sleeved rotors like what you are describing, but I assume that they are trying to reduce the airgap in the motor by adding a steel sleeve which can be magnetized by the neodymium material underneath it.

While certain aspects of the new rotor are similar: to reduce the effective airgap which in turn will increase cogging, the new rotor has been optimized for maximum power output with minimum temperature rise.

There's no such thing as a free lunch, you can't just add material to gain one thing and expect that nothing else will suffer.

Wire heatsinks are good if you have run brushed mod and had the motor come unsoldered due to the heat, it has happened to the best of 'em....


I don't think this rotor will be to great for 10.5/13.5 as they already have great brakes....if you want too much brake run an orion 10.5 lol


for mod though!

How is this any different than running different brush/spring combinations? It's not. I find it funny when I hear that brushed stock was a spec class and 13.5 isn't. A Reedy MVP was different than a Monster which was different than a CO27 which was different than a Core Stock which was...
We are going to see the same variations in brushless. 13.5 will be the class and the can and rotor designs will vary. This is just a tuning option.

Cooler runs and more drag. Sounds sweet.
I've been running 20 minute mains and the Novaks are the only one that seem to be close enough in design for that kind of run time. With the fan and capacitor. And with the new rotor it will most likely be even more efficient. I hope.
Racing a 4300 sintered GTB 20 minutes off road, the temps getting as high as 135 degrees.

Sweet wrap one up I'll take it.
Yeah but running nitro doesn't count!

Understood. But this is not a brushed motor rotor. Different technology, different tuning options.
