I lifted up the cover around the sensor and used a flathead to pry out the sensor plug and got it out....but are there any other ways to remove the sensor cable from the motor?

thanks......merry xmas everyone!

I found this problem on mine, just unscrew the 3 timing ring screws a little, this will allow the sensor cable to be pulled out with ease

How would I gear a Novak Ballistic 17.5 relative to a Duo2? Do I need more or less gear and approx how many teeth?

Thanks, and thanks for the pm. Would I be able to see this without taking the motor apart or do I need to take it apart to see it? I purchased a motor that is supposed to have a 13mm rotor but I don't see any marks or notches.

Check out the small photo here; you may need a standard 12.3mm rotor for comparison:

Novak 13mm Tuning Rotor

The Ballistic was designed so that the sensor harness could be removed (only) by loosening the screws. In some motors the plug-in sensor harness will come out due to a hard jolt; the Ballistic w/silicon seal was designed specifially to prevent this.

Start at 4.6 FDR with 35 degree of timing. We run this motor with Mamba Max Pro ESC it's a rocket on the track.

Stock is 30 degrees of timing right? So does that mean I move it one notch over?

Alright. I just noticed that the one that came with the motor had two of the wires disconnected, so I just used that as an excuse to get a short wire.

yes one notch towards the positive side. Every mark is 5 degree increments.

Thank you very much. I'll pull the motor later today and see if I can see it. Is the 13mm rotor faster or does it just allow the motor to run at higher temps?

You just need a hand wound 10.5 stator, as shown in this drop-down menu:
