hey ed. quick question. do you know why they made the msxx chassis in 2mm? is the thinner chassis better on asphalt or is it just to keep the cost down. just wondering if it would be worth changing my rhienard chassis to the thinner msxx chassis. thanx for the help.

I assume thats the reason, as a thinner chassis will flex more (if the carbon is laid up in the same manner, which I assume is the case here). TBH, I'm not sure why they have gone so thin, I personally have never felt the need to use a thinner chassis, the standard MRE one is fine for a range of conditions, but thats just me.

What gearing would you guys drive with 5 cells, a 19t element motor and a MSXX?? I was thinking of 4.0 or lower...The track is big and had long parts with some fast corners. Please let me know.

Also for 4 cells. Tamiya used 2mm chassis at JMRCA Nationals.

You're not saying what motor, we can't be of any help without knowing what motor.

Exclamation 415/TA05 Alum Motor Heatsink Clamp on Brushless Motors (Novak 13.5R)

Question for those who run BL (Brushless) Novak motors, particularly the newer versions (13.5 Pro - ribbed can or lower turn series).

Can you use the 415/TA05 alum motor heatsink clamp on these said motors?

The reason I ask, Novak has their own alum motor heatsink sleeves for the motors that goes in the middle. I was in the initial stages of putting my 13.5 Pro BL motor in my MRE and thought of sliding over the 415/TA05 alum motor heatsink clamp and it went on with no problems (actually has a bit of a nice snug fit).

But by doing this and instead of the using the Novak BL heatsink sleeves, would there be any issues?

Thanks to those in advance who can shed some light on my question.

I'm not sure if the clamp on heat sink from Tamiya will be as efficient as the Novak one, but aside form that, I see no reason to worry, should still work without any trouble. But I do believe the NOvak one might work better, since is actually takes the place of the middle section of the can(& it fits INCREDIBLY tight), in fact, I had to get Charlie S to help me install it on my 13.5 it was so tight(I was afraid I'd damage something if I did it alone, ), & with the heat sink compound you use with it, I'd kinda think that it might keep the motor a bit cooler than any clamp-on one.....

I have the original 13.5 (still going strong) best cooling setup ive used was a Integy cheapy heatsink with 2 AE fans bolted on top. Super cooling and was worth around 30 degs on some race nights. Only problem, the Integy blue is much darker than the Tamiya blue.... didnt like the clash of colours lol.
