Default How to ID Novak BL?

Hi,

I have a Novak Brushless Motor/ESC sitting on my desk. The person who sold it to me it is the first BL by Novak and it says in the box it came in with that it is the SS5800. Aside from the box, no other labels/marks will prove that is the SS5800.

I just showed it to a friend and we both came to the same conclusion : that we cannot draw any conclusion whether it is the SS58 or SS48.

Not that that I don't trust the person who sold it to me, I just need some help in ID'ing the motor. Any way of distinguishing the ss58 from ss48?


Thanks

Have a couple of these in the cars, plus a spare on the bench. Love 'em!


ok, both 4300 & 5800 come with same SuperSport ESC, so don't look at that.


The motors should have a ID sticker on the top segment (nearest the endbell with wires)... is the sticker there?

4300 max revs lower than 5800 at the same voltage... so just free-rev both of them with the same charged pack. The 5800 will have a much higher whine.

As a rough guide... put the ESC into restricted mode 5/6 (blue LED on). The 4300 revs just a little higher than the rev cutoff, but the 5800 revs much higher than in stuttering mode.

The sticker's not there anymore. I guess my only option now is to run it alongside a verified ss5800.


Thanks for the response
