Hey Steve

Any chance there is a GT-7 case hiding in a corner or in a "we don't sell these anymore" boxes. I've pretty much mutilated mine and since its the last brushed speed control I'll own, i wanted to keep it around for nostalgic reasons.

I'll do some digging around and see what I can turn up!

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.
Thanks for the info,

They don't currently allow the sintered rotor, as the bonded rotor is closer to a 27t brushed stock motor performance wise.

Perhaps if there were enough numbers, they would be able to split the class into brushed/brushless, then I assume they would allow the sintered rotors in the brushless class.

A few of the other fellows I race with have confirmed the rollout figures of around 38mm, (never been able to get that high) so I'll replace the rotor and see what happens.

Thank you very much for all the help.

Steve,
I'm finally taking the brushless plung and just got a GTB and a seperate 4.5. How can I tell from the motor packaging if it has a sintered rotor? The package doesn't mention it and I thought it was standard, it just talks about the old style? Can I tell what's in the motor without taking it apart by turning the motor shaft or do I have to take it apart to see what is inside?

Thanks

dizzy,

We've been shipping all of the Velociti motors with sintered rotors for quite some time... if you can send me the serial number on the motor there is a chance I can tell if it's a new or older motor.

Steve,

Its LN00715, I opened it at the track last night and the rotor is black, so I assume that it is not sintered. Guess I'll be contact Amain hobbies since they said it was sintered.

Yeah, if it's black and looks like it's wrapped in thread it's just the bonded version.

I thought the bonded rotor was grey and the sintered one was black, or nickel? I'm so confused .

Watchout,

The bonded rotors came in grey and black...the sintered rotors are all silvery/chrome looking

Steve I have another question on the GTB's, did Novak make the GTB with
li-po cuttoff but not have the spread spektrum option? I though that if it had one it had both.


Thanks
Chris

(Not) Steve here...LOL

About the same time the Spread Spectrum GTB came out, they started making all the GTBs with a Lipo cutoff.

Steve posted some pictures on this thread a little while back that show how to ID a GTB with Lipo cutoff.
