I am very much done with brushes so it is all brushless to me since local tracks allows it...will leave the GTX/GT7 for brush just incase of those "races".

2 questions....

(1) stock brushless 13.5........does that come with the front big bearing /end bell replacement and the Sintered rotor like those who were talking about at the other novak stock brushless motor thread..? They were saying something like need to call/email Novak and get the upgrade/update...very confusing.

(2) Already got the 4.5 motor........and I saw tower has the 3.5R sintered rotor and said it is an upgraded rotor for the Velociti 4.5R or 5.5R......so, is that the only parts that need to convert from 4.5 to 3.5 or the actual 3.5R motor has more then just the rotor different then the 4.5..? I am just debating should I buy the whole 3.5 motor (sell the 4.5) or spend $30 to get the 4.5 upgrade to 3.5 and use the 4.5 rotor for spare...?

Thanks in advance...........can't wait to be full brushless.

the 13.5 already comes with the bigger front bearing all you have to do is install the sintered rotor

as for the 4.5 its just an install of the 3.5 rotor too

1) Some of the early 13.5 motors shipped with the old endbell. What is shipping now are all the new (Velociti) endbell. If you are buying a motor now this is not something you need to worry about. The sintered rotor is a direct replacement part for the standard rotor. It will give stronger brakes and very marginally stronger performance. Check with your track though as some tracks are only allowing the 13.5 when fitted with the standard rotor.

2. You can install the sintered rotor as an update to the 4.5. This doesn't make it a 3.5. The sintered rotor is a stronger and more heat resistant magnet - that's all. Again it will give you better brakes (much better) and marginally stronger performance. It should be more resistant to fading performance after a number of thermal shutdowns. The sintered rotor is a direct replacement for the standard 4.5 bonded rotor. If you want a 3.5, you can't upgrade your 4.5, you just need to buy a 3.5.

Wow!! that's certainly a stretch on the 4cell car..

You must've used the whole lot on that one!

Nice layout though! Wish you could do that on a 6 cell to help with the weight..

Thanks Scott, and Marco.J both...but Scott's answer is much more detailed and did answer my question completely. (Marco...not you, it is me, I am kinda slow....like the way I drive, LOL)....Again, Thanks...now I know what to do with the 4.5 and waiting for the 13.5 now.

Ok, just like to clear this up. It is the motor that overheats isnt it?
