Default TeamNovak's "Build-A-Ballistic"™ Program

Build-A-Ballistic™

Quote:
Novak is offering customers the opportunity to customize their own Ballistic motor with Novak's new, exclusive Build-A-Ballistic™ program. Because of the Ballistic Brushless Motor's ingenious rebuildable design, drivers can choose among dozens of options to create their very own personalized Ballistic Brushless Motor.

The benefits are obvious! Only through Novak's Build-A-Ballistic™ program can racers pick-and-choose among specialty hand-wound stators, upgraded ceramic bearings and improved, superior-quality sintered rotors to create their own perfect motor.

To ensure the highest quality, each Build-A-Ballistic™ motor is built by Novak motor-assembly experts. Each motor is custom built, individually timed -- based on your chosen wind -- passes numerous stringent brushless motor tests and includes a 120-day warranty.
If you have suggestions or questions about the program, please post them here.

Novak.... what are the ratings on the rotors? (curious because you guys did release a "graded" rotor awhile back). i.e.... whats considered "sufficient"? thanks.

the old 17.5s worked great. looking forward to the new series.

The rotor info is on-line; the 12.3mm are the same rotors we install in our Ballistics (and the earlier Velociti and SS Pro motors.) The 13mm and 14mm are tuning rotors that have been available for quite a while.

Our 1300+ Graded Sintered Tuning Rotors--12.3mm are not offered as part of this program at this time.

If you are running 13.5 according to ROAR rules, the 13mm rotor would not be legal. Our 13mm rotor has a groove on the shaft bevel, so it can be identified without taking the motor apart.

u need to be more vocal bout ur 25.5. u could/DO have a real solution to put the 540 johnson to bed in many classes like m03/04, f1, tamiya spec, etc etc. do somethin with it, not an afterthought in a drop down menu.

Thanks for your suggestion; I did post a update in the Vintage Trans Am thread, from which some racer had originally requested the 25.5T wound stator.

Can you suggest other applications in which this wind would be desired? We should probably post a piece on our web-site announcing these new "specialty" winds: 9.5, 11.5, 18.5 and 25.5.

like i said, u could pair up with tamiya on a project with many of their classes starvin for a solution that makes racing fun equal and less painful. and in time less expensive. folks pony up 50bux now for a 'hot' can motor. here is ur opportunity. no1 likes buyin brushed speedos anymore for just that app. bull by the horns.

F1 is growing again in the states, TT01 spec classes are still around the county and heat up w/TCS season every yr. might even been a home in a GT3 (base level touring) class. finally a brushless suited to a mini m03/m04. the possibilities are endless. cars are too damn fast nowadays, time to go back to the egg.

heck, i bet ur 25.5 would prolly line up just fine and dandy next to a titan 550. see where i'm goin with that?

I'd like to see a brushless set up for the spec classes Tamiya offers. Save some coin and maintenance. Charge it, Race it, Clean it, Repeat.
