Default INTERCHANGEABLE STATORS?

I have a question that may sound extremely Noob, but screw it here goes.....
Are STATORS from different companies interchangeable? Ie. I have a Novak 17.5 ballistic in my SCT. Can I swap that stator out for let's say a thunder power? Are any of the companies interchangeable?

Thx....

No, they are not.
you must use all the same company parts for the motor.


Don't worry about asking, we long time guys know stuff we don't even know we know

Thank you, because a few brands side by side look similar. I also thought it was like brushed motors where you CAN swap out the internals. Any 17.5 motors for sct you recommend? I like torque.

are you asking from a "Possible" standpoint or a "Legal" view?

"Possible" yes... if the rotor is smaller, some can interchange.
Smaller rotor may give less torque but more RPM...

"Legal"? no, especially in spec/limited classes like 17.5

No I'm not looking to cheat racing toy cars. That's kinda pathetic. I have a Novak in my 17.5 short course for a local class. I heard thunder power and speed passion 17.5 motors are a bit quicker. So I'd figure swap out the ($40) stator rather the entire motor ($90). Both speed passion and thunder power motors are legal. My goal was to save a buck or two.

What are your rules? Do they allow a ramping esc or is it blinky?

most 17.5 running in blinky mode will have more torque than novak because novak has a smallish 12.3mm rotor.
Can you change the rotors?
the Thunder power is 12.2mm so that makes me wonder if you don't need more rpms than torque if you think it is faster than you.

Is your track over 100ft straight?

yeah sometimes less torque feels slower in the infield
but you could makeup laptime with more rpm on the straights


only one sure way to find out, gotta go buy/borrow the other motor/s
and see how it works in your setup; too much ESC gizmodry too these days

speed & education both costs $$

The reason I asked was the guys running thunder power motors with a similar C rated battery was fast as hell compared to my Novak. I'm definetly looking to buy that motor when my Novak gets old. I was just looking to boost the power economically. Any opinions on good 17.5 motors for short course? I run a xxx SCT.

maybe your gearing is wrong, you cannot gear your novak like his TP, then as ask before twice (3 times now) blinky or not blinky? that is the question (if Shakespear had done racing....)

Speed is not just about what you call a "fast" motor, in theory all similar wind motor should have the same speed,

but this is theory, they are lots of reasons why this or that motor is faster, first is your gearing, follow Novak suggestions on their web site as a starting point, check the temperature of your motor after every change and 2 minutes running.

when your car is poky enough coming out of bends and has a good top speed in the straight you are nearly there, you also need to make sure your speedo is set properly and that all accessible settings in blinky are correct, it is not because it is blinky that nothing has to be set, this depends on your speed controller.

you then have the option of manual timing on motor, but I can't remember if this is an option on Novak motors, I had one at the early brushless period, but start playing with this only when the rest feels right.

and as you mentionned the size of stator will make a difference a on motor, for a more torque thicker one to a more revving smaller one.

Standard stators are usually different in lengh/color and if you decide to change it make sure to have the proper washer/s in place.

also any motor that has run warm their magnets weaken so if yours
can't be touched after every run, should try a new rotor from Novak


how often do you service your car? jammed bearings are common in SCT

also grip... once i was wondering why laptimes were getting slower after lunch
worked out that tyres really only grip good for first 2-3 runs on that track.
Soon as the edges on the blocks rounded off (tyre still looks "95%")
the grip levels fell off significantly.

Jay there's nothing wrong with a novak 17.5 in TC if geared right.
