Default Novak Ballistic

What is the recommended temperature window to the Ballistic - the specs stipulate a recommended operating temperature of 70C (160F) but on the Novak site it states that the operating system cannot exceed this temperature. So I my question is what is the highest temperature the motor cannot/should not exceed?

Havn't you just answered your own question?

No because it doesn't make total sense that your reommended operating temperature is identical to the temperature you cannot exceed. How can you maintain your ideal operating temperature without exceeding it over a 6 minute race? You are either going to be under it thus never achievng it or you will hit it but eventually exceed it as the motor gets hotter. Surely there has to be a critical temperature you cannot exceed that is higher than the recommended operating temperature

it is a guideline,if the manufacture says 160 and your 165 its fine if your getting 190 or 200 you now you may need to adjust gearing

Sorry for taking so long to reply

If you go to this link

http://www.teamnovak.com/products/br...pec/index.html

Then download the PDF that you access from the link "Ballistinc Motor Timing Information"

On the second page it has in Bold Print - SYSTEM SHOULD NEVER EXCEED 160F which is 70Deg

I guess what I need to know is what is the critical temperature as it varies from motor to motor as you know and the reason I have changed to Novak is because it can handle extra heat - whereas copmpared to some others where through personal experience have gone through 3 (same brand) motors in the space of 2 weeks because they could not handle anything in excess of 65deg - It is almost summer in Australia and dont want to experience that again but would love to increase my boost which I assume will take the temp of 75-80DEG

I like to keep mine at 150F. This temp works well on both 13.5T and 17.5T a good fan assited heat sink is a must this way you can run higher timing and keep pulling heat from the motor.
I have melted a couple of stators but only when they get near 200F.

We will be introducing epoxied 17.5 Ballistic replacement stators in the next couple of weeks. These should help considerably in those situations where either ambient temps or excessive timing/boost currents are overheating the windings and burning up the motors.

Mint. So what's the max temp when running the new epoxied stator.

the Epoxy stators are much more resistant to heat(i have been testing them for about 2 mths with great results. 160 is still a high limit due to loss of mag strength in the rotor.

No. We have our standard 12.3mm and two graded versions---+1300 and the new 1S rotor, both 12.3mm

Default End bell timing

If the end bell timing sticker were to fall off a ballistic, how do you reset/set the timing?
