Thanks Steve, I appreciate the feedback. I think my perception of it being slower might just be that I need to give it more gear to get similar/same performance to the other rotor. I realize the lowly 4300 doesn't get much attention compared to all the hot mods, but we've built a class around it, and so far, it's been a great time.

I really hope it will be legal soon!

And again... i was VERY soft on a throttle just to make runtime.

Here's a pic of the track...

Gosh!!! I'm highly undergeared...! My local 1/8 track has something of the same lenght or longer straight than that...! Something must be done...!

250+ degrees killed the SS4300. The winds in the stator were melted, and the rotor was yellowed. Andrew, you may need to replace yours.

There seems to be a very noticeable correlation between the strength of the original rotor's magnet, and how much heat it produces during a race. The magnet seems to fade quite a bit over time, even without a bunch of thermaling.

Be careful Especially with that throttle finger I believe you're experienced enough to decide if it's really worth it - maybe infield is slower?

BTW the straight in a picture flows into another so there is almost no need in releasing the throttle in a turn 1 (sure if you got a GOOD line with 4.5 at max revs with 8:1 ratio ) Check out the attachments

I'll be careful...At least I got to bring it down below 10.00

Hey

Just need some help with gearing for the 3.5R.
Im running on a track very similar to the one Lokanans posted Pics on in post #1491. Does anyone have any idea what gearing to run with the 3.5R?

Thanks in advance.

Andy.

Gearing advice on a small carpet track with the 4.5 motor? Rubber tires.

I got a look at the new heatsink from Novak last night. It replaces the ugly purple "ring" on the motors with a new one that's got a heatsink built into it. So, it's more like a part of the motor than something that just clips on to the outside. It also comes with thermal paste to make sure you get the most heat transfer possible. I'm gonna get a black one, purple isn't my thing.

Has anybody tried polishing the can of their brushless motors? I saw that this guy did it, and thought I might give it a try. The motor would look pretty bling polished with the black heatsink. I bet it's worth 3,000 RPM at least!

Where can I find out more about this heatsink and maybe purchase one, I don't see anything on Novak's site about it. Unless I missed it.

Tower has 'em in blue, black and purple, but no pictures, and only purple in stock. Make sure you don't get the one for the HV motors.
