Conspiracy !!! I knew it..it's up to you english guys now to get to the bottom of it. We need FIA involvement to organize one of those closed door ass kicking sessions, involving water torture, bright lights,pliers..etc..

Yeah it was harsh alright, but then again we all know as a child if you get caught with your hands in the cookie pot when you're not allowed you get your "just deserts" Wrong place and wrong time and all that...

They'll be bouncing back next year if LH keeps his cool.

Just remember micro racers are people too, we need 2/3 cells with good numbers and 14turn motors that are fast. trinity should help us with some more hopped up micro motors.

Hey jim i tried running a fiago 13.5 motor tonight at the track and it had a 12mm rotor. What are your thoughts on rotor size for this motor ? I would be running this motor at the novak. It seemed to not have the rip the novak did. Any suggestions ?

I tried the 13mm rotor in mine (w/fan) and it seemed a little more punchy than the 12, but not like the Novak. I think the lack of punch may be due to the length of the stator, and not the rotor itself. The air gap appears larger, too, even with the 13mm in the Feigao. I think the ID of the stator is larger. I'm curious to hear Jim's answer, I imagine he'll have some valuable insight.

Wall/syndrome. Airgap will be different on the novak. This race is going to be test on fly since I havent been able to spend any time on 10.5 or 13.5. I'm on the machines today to try to learn enough to use in a few days.

The standard rotor in the latest 13.5's and 10.5's have no fan and should be 12.3mm in diameter...I think this will be the upcoming ROAR spec for BL spec motor rotors.

The bigger 13mm and 13.5mm rotors are for mod motors and they have fans on them.
