I agree about the removable harness, I love their removable on/off, receiver and fan wire so I can shorten them all...

does some one from novak support this? i wanna know before i screw up a brushless motor?
also on the old gt7 speed control (u know back when there were brushes) i know i can shorten the -ve and + leads that connect it to the reciever but can i shorten the signal wire with no harm being done? im running a novak smart stop and gt7 (soon to be gtbss) and need to clean up the clutter so if i can do this let me know cheers

Josh,

You shouldn't have any trouble with shortening all three of the wires on the input harness on your GT7.

As far as shortening the sensor wires on the motor ... it is possible to do but because it can be difficult for the average person to solder wires that small we do not recommend it.

Steve, I've burnt up two brand new 10.5's two days ago... all were geared at around 5.2. I have the receipt for one so it is still under warranty - can I send them to you? I also bought the new rotor to go with it, but the second motor burnt up right after I installed it. Would it be wise for me to send you the rotor as well, or only the motors?

We like to see everything exactly as it was in the car before the failure!

What kind of application were you running with the 10.5? Sounds like TC....but how big a track...what type...etc etc...?

I am indeed running the setup in a touring car.

The track size is med-large with about a 100 foot straight - it seems to definitely put stress on the motors, as it is rather high speed with only minimal technical sections.

I haven't really torn the motors down after, merely opened then bottom of the can to inspect for physical damage due to melting, etc - will box them up and send them to you with the rotor in the one I originally installed it in.

Doesn't sound like you're too far off on the gearing or anything... I usually gear around 5.5 or so to start out with for a track such as your's...

I think some guys ran their 10.5's at 5.4 for tamiya which has a pretty good sized straight.

Also, you want to try to limit your practice runs to 5 minutes or so... if you want to run longer you're going to have to gear down to keep the temperature rise under control!

Hello Steve,

Do any of our local hobby shops carry the new 13mm rotor?

Chris I really couldn't tell you... we ship most everything out to distrbutors ...and then the hobby shops buy things from the distributors...

We have shipped out a fair amount of those rotors though... your hobby shop should be able to order them now!
