I would say probably not since it would be considered a mod to the motor and not all people will be willing to make that purchase. Whether it would be an advantage thing, that may be questionable, but I would think it has to remain just like they hand it to you at registration.

So does that mean clip-on heatsinks would also be disallowed? It's the same concept, just that one slides on and the other clips.

I'm not asking to be a pain, I just find that if you can deal with the extra weight, those heatsinks go a long way toward making the motor run strong at the end of a race when you're geared on the ragged edge.

My guess would be the motors will be sealed so they cant be tampered with.

Thats what they did at the Reedy. But this time they have the motors before hand, so I'd imagine if this is the case the crew will have them ready and you will have to run as is.

Cool, that sounds good to me. Not trying to stir the pot, just curious.

For people that run 13.5 & 17.5 rubber with the same car, balance could be interesting. Those Orion motors are considerably shorter and lighter than the Novaks.

I wouldn't worry too much about balancing your car for different motors. Put motor in, pull trigger.

Yeah, I don't spend much time agonizing over it myself. I think the difference between the two motors is over 1oz, so some folks might need to be mindful of their minimum weight between classes.

What about rotors? Can you replace a rotor without buying a second motor? It's not unheard of to miss the gearing and get one too hot. That could be a big can of worms, though.

Not sure, I'm gonna stop answering for the Tech crew.

I'm sure one of them will answer all your questions, they are good like that.

Again I think that would be a tampering issue and think that the motors will be marked in someway to not allow this. But I guess until Scotty wakes up and checks the thread, we won't know for sure.

You know... you do drive a car that's self-balancing. :-) No wonder you don't care!

I dont even know of a Brushless motor without a sintered rotor?
