You can get the Sintered rotor for the LRP too. Speed Passion also has a new 13.5 in the mix...

Default difference between motors

2. The sintered rotor 13.5 (SS)
3. The LRP X11 13.5.

I have a fair idea what the answer is but just want to get some other opinions. Also which of these is faster than a very good brushed stock motor.
I can tell you this I race locally every other weekend and almost everyone running stock 13.5 at our local track in Tampa is running 13.5 SS w/sintered rotor.
I have ran against people using both GTB's and Sphere TC's and my SS is always one of the fastest on the track.
Now if I can just learn to drive it!

All LRP 13.5 motors now come with sintered rotors.

Wow! When did they make the change? If I ordered one now is there a different part number to look for?

Questions?? Bonded rotor in the 13.5 EX Sport motor!

That makes me wonder why Novak would put bonded rotors in a BL motor which is the only reason why I would spend the extra money vs. a brushed motor would be to race. Even when I practice, I practice to race for a later date. I'm not going to go half speed around the track. Don't get me wrong I like Novak BL systems I have 3 already and plan on getting another but when it says sport isn't the sport about racing at full speed not less than unless your running a RTR stock chassis that isn't gearing to go fast?
Reason being I've broke 2 bonded rotors in the 13.5 already and I'm planning on getting a sintered rotor but this is only after 3 or 4 hard runs that the rotor separates from the shaft. I guess buying the EX Sport isn't really saving you money unless you plan on running the motor conservatively.

Just my 2$

Default which 13.5?

Well I've been trying to read through this thread but I just found it today and can't quite weed throught the many pages of it to find the info i'm looking for. I'm a member of a Dirt Oval Tour which for the past 2 seasons has been solely nitro. This year an electric class has been added. We will be using a 13.5 brushless motor for this class. We want to keep this class fairly close and keep cost to an appropriate level. We are looking at making the Novak the only legal motor available but some are wanting to have the option of running the lrp or orions. Would allowing these 3 motors make for an even playing field or is one at an advantage or disadvantage? Has anyone done any testing to compare the power outputs of these not just by looking at lap times? Thank you. jessee

The last shipment of motors were with the sintered rotor so that is about 1000 motors that are now in the distribution system. Our last shipment was long enough ago that I doubt you will encounter any of the bonded 13.5 motors. There is not a new part number as we have treated this modification as a running change.

But, the packaging has been changed for all X11 motors so you will know that the 13.5 comes with sintered if the motor is packaged in a clamshell style package.

At the time we released the EX Sport motors, some tracks still only allowed BL motors with bonded rotors to race along with brush motors. We do not promote the EX motors for racing because you really need to use the sintered rotor. The EX can be updated with the sintered rotor for racing.

Doh! I just bought an LRP 13.5 and bought the sintered rotor too. Well that explains why when I installed the sintered rotor it looked exactly like the one I was replacing. Jeepers I feel like a fool!

Pretty motor. Iíll find out tomorrow if it works for me.

Maybe it has the same power as 13.5 of others brands or maybe not, look on the label, there's 11.5t/23t and not 13.5t like redrc said, and not to running in 27T race.
I think is little unfair, even in 23T race with 13.5BL motors.
I think there's small mistake between redrc and roche information exchange.
