Default New Trinity Brushless

Does the novak heatsink fit this motor? any suggestions for heatsinks for these new motors?

I ran one of the 10.5's in SS at the Nats this weekend and it was very fast. Travis S TQ'd with one. It runs cooler with the endbell design that Dieter has come up with. It does not have a place to put the novak heat sink on it as the outside of the motor is all one piece. Hard to explain with out having one in your hands.

Good motor though!

Since i put the heatsink on my novak 13.5 i've been able to go up 4 teeth and maintain the same temps, since ten i've been putting that heatsink on everything that it will fit. I mounted the little fan to move air horizontally through the fins vs on top blowing up or down.

Travis was very fast with the new Green Trinity motor. He went even faster when he started using the new Trinity lipo. He liked that combo best. He was by far the fastest 10.5 of the class, but he had some troubles in the mains. If he held it together he would had won.

I just picked up a 13.5 to replace my novak 13.5 i'm still running a gtb though waiting on more availability on the tekin rs.

So you guys really think i can get away w/ no heatsink?

I'm running the checkpoint 5400 lipo's

Just got a new tekin rs pro, which is supposed to increase efficiency even more over the gtb. Big race this weekend, my trinity motor will be going up against the new hacker, the new speed passion, and the xcelorin. So far i've been able to keep pace w/ the new speed passion on the straights, even w/ the gtb, i'll be tuning my timing and such to wring some more out of this motor.

John, what's the price of your 17.5?
