Id say whats all wrong, But theres so much it isnt funny
I can understand the frustration, thoe heat sinks are VERY hard to get on right. In fact, when I bought one for mine, I got very worried I'd seriously damage mine too, but fortunately Charlie was there at the track(this was at the Novak race, so he & Bob were both there), & he helped me get mine installed(in fact, I think it took both of us pressing on it from all around to get it on). However, the upside to that is the heat sink works EXTREMELY well(it was absoluely vital when I had to use a bonded rotor here, we'd gotten our track to allow the 13.5 but only using the bonded rotor, & that one makes it run a LOT hotter than the sintered). But if you're using thesintered rotor, you may not really need the heat sink, so once you get the motor sorted out, I'd consider not bothering with the heat sink(because once it's on, you really don't wanna mess with trying to get it off again, I consider mine a permanent part of my motor now)....One thing though, when Charlie helped me with mine, he used the original purple ring as a guide to both get leverage on the heat sink & also to make it easier to apply even pressure on it, maybe that'll help you a bit....

Novak is sending a team rep out to the track for you on Friday. I get off work at 5:30 and will be at the track by 5:45. Bring the motor with you and I'll take a look at what problems you have run into. If you did any wierd cutting grinding or something of that nature to the motor then it may not fall under warranty.

I'm not racing on Friday. Just swinging by to lend you a hand. I have a very busy weekend planned. Racing at Norcal on Saturday and then the Rocks WCSO on Sunday. My TC5 will be very busy.

Default GTB/BL ????

Alright...I have been trying to turn on the lipo cutoff on my GTB, but the instructions aren't real clear...I got the red and yellow lights to blink twice, however upon powering up th car there is no indication that the cutoff is engaged....

One more question...what should the lights be to indicate brushless mode? Blue , Amber and Red???

With brushless motors, do they behave in the same way whether over/under geared? Also what's a good starting FDR with the 10.5 on a tight high-grip asphalt track (Seattle Indoor Raceway)?

Well I know sensorless BL motors are more forgiving with over/under gearing, Not 100% shure with sensored BL motors

You didnt say what BL motor, but if your going to use a novak, there gearing point's is on there site
