WCRC got in a hand full of the new motors on Saterday at 10am, and they were all gone by 10:30am

Wow, that is nuts!

I agree with you on your previous comment regarding the Duo2. There were some fast ones there but they weren't on the track at that time to be clocked.

The great thing about the Ballistic motor is its versatility! The placement of the sensor cable is just great.

Anyone have a chance to run the new 17.5 or 13.5 Ballistic yet? If so what speedo did you run with it and roughly what gearing compared to what you ran previous?

Going to try the 17.5 this weekend with the Tekin RS and 200 software. Gearing should roughly be 4.65 or so to 5.10 depending on the turbo feature setting.

I ran the Duo with the SPX a few weeks back at setting #8 middle hole on the timing geared at 4.63 and motor was 165 after 6 minutes. Be interested in what is going to happen with the Tekin and the Ballistic motor.

If you don't mind possibly getting completely and totally screwed on shipping, you can get them from Novak's Shopatron site.

For fun, see how much the cost of shipping changes if you add a different color center ring. $3 ring, $5 more for shipping. WTF Novak?

I will check, but most of the Shopatron shipping prices are set by them, not Novak. I think that we can lower the prices on manufacturer direct items only; those lower shipping prices are borne by us, not the dealers

The prices set by SAT are for the dealer/fulfillers who ship products offered through distribution. I will forward your observation to our sales department.

The timing set at the factory is an ACTUAL 30 degrees... not to be confused with the "degrees" you might see on other brand's motors.

I hope this motor is legal for IIC, I think it's what I'll run in 13.5 rub.

Thanks for checking into the shipping charges guys. I love the design of the new motor, and it looks dialed too!

I got my Ballistic 13.5 today... I had ordered it through the LHS as soon as I saw the announcement... I will be running it offroad (sorry -- I know this is the "OnRoad" forum)...

I can't wait...
