I have run the hacker, novak, lrp, DUO, and redline motors. Of all those the hacker and the lrp have performedthe best, but I also found that both run a touch warmer so for outdoor use I run the novak. Those are my top three

Could you guys atleast give some more detail? Like what other gear you run please

I dont think there is much between the motors. I recon each motor has its sweet spot and you just need to find it. Even two of the same brand motors will be different right?!

Couldn't agree more.

Most motors come with a suggestible gearing, but it really depends on the speedy you are running.

I have run Losi, high gearing, Trinity Pulse (dont try, they are quick initially but they drop their windings and magnets) Trinity Duo v2 are great, need to be geared low, and at the moment I'm running a LRP with mid gearing on a med size (12-15 sec lap) track and I'm very happy with it.

I have a Tekin redline 10,5 and I love it.
I have also a Speedpassion and a LRP X11 10,5.
The LRP is also good. The Speedpassion is not a good motor.

The Tekin is a faster than the LRP motor.

We get maby also a 17,5T class and a 13,5T class. I want both and from both a Tekin.
Also I will go from 5 cell to Lipo.

That's good news!!!

I had asked about a 17.5 version of the Ballistic at the RCX show and was told there were no plans for anything above 8.5 which baffled me as it seems like the market for 10.5, 13.5, and 17.5 is much bigger than the low turn motors. After that I dismissed buying one.

I am in the market for a 17.5 and maybe I'll wait to see if the 17.5 ballistic materializes.

Not true. Novak sells replacement sensor wires for the SS Pro motors on their website. You will need some soldering skills, but its not above any regular person.

We sent the Ballistic Spec motor press release out on Tuesday, and will begin shipping by the end of this month.

The direct replacement sensor harnesses that we offer were designed for the new Ballistic motors, not the earlier Velociti, SS Pro, Crawler, Drift, HV Pro, etc motors. They work as replacements for all sensored motors, AFAIK.

When the info is on-line, I will post the link. The primary difference between the Ballistic Racing and Spec motor versions is the color coded inserts that designate the winds.

What's is also very interesting about the new Novak motors are that you can just buy a different strator instead of buying a different motor.

From Novak's site:

"Novak's Ballistic Spec Brushless Motors 10.5T 21.5T (#3610 - #3621) are completely rebuildable, right down to the hardware. In fact, only one motor is necessary to compete in all spec class races. Simply pick your class of choice, and install the necessary color-coded, hand-wound stator. Each stator includes a factory-installed insert that easily identifies the number of motor winds.

This next-generation spec motor series contains an easy-to-adjust timing assembly, are built to ROAR/IFMAR specifications, boast a removable shielded sensor harness and contain a 12.3mm nickel-plated sintered Neodymium rotor."

We will obtain the same approvals as we had for the other motors. I believe the motors are at ROAR for approval now.

Can you give use some sort of insights regarding the performance of the new ballistic 17.5 motor vs the older 17.5 SS Pro? Any particular gains the new motor has over the previous one?
