The 5923 sintered rotor/endbell upgrade kit will fit your EX motor just fine though.
So if I swap the front endbell, swap the spacer, Bob's my uncle. Sweet! Thanks.

Steve,

If you were going to run the new 17.5 in stock sedan, what gearing (FDR) would you be aiming for? I don't see this motor listed in the gearing or motor charts from Novak's website yet.

Also, would the 17.5 be closer to 27T motors? Exploring options for slower initial acceleration? Maybe a 15.5 would be best, but that isn't an option yet.

Kn,

I really don't have any sort of gearing information for the 17.5 in a stock sedan... all I can do is make a guess as to what it would need.

Knowing that most people are running around 4.25-4.5 with the 13.5 I would wager that a 4.0 would realistically be about as much as you could get out of the current car designs.

The 17.5 should accellerate slower than the 13.5 should...but it's hard to guage "how slow" and "how comprable" to a 27 turn brushed motor... but I would have to guess that it would be close.

Some of the engineers here at work have beening playing tf2 on pc and love it. Its neat looking but I would think it would get kinda played out after awhile.

How would one tell when it is time to replace a rotor?

with the 13.5 turn bonded rotor, I find the motor thermals if I go over about 35mm rollout (its rather hot ambient temp here in australia)

Drivetrain is free, nothing else is broken bent etc etc, so its pretty well down to the esc or motor...

also the car is slightly underweight...

thanks for your help

Ashley,

I don't know what kind of rules your club runs by... but I recommend to everyone that they replace their bonded rotor with a sintered rotor as soon as possible.... the performance and reliability gains are tremendous.

If your club does not allow you to run sintered rotors I would say that you might want to replace your bonded rotor with another bonded rotor at least once every three months or so. Depending on ambient temperatures, gearing, and other factors such as how hard you drive, etc this time frame may need to be shortened.
