Not likely, they no longer use that system of measurement...

There were 5 of us, all with 5.5 systems in all different touring cars. They were, my pro-4, then a Cyclone, a XXX-S graphite, a JRXS and the last one I didn't look(he usually runs oval anyway). My car and the XXX-S seemed to be the top contendors, with mine having a little more top end(gearing changes to follow, we both felt like they could go several teeth higher, because even after some hard runs, the motor never broke 120 degrees, and the speedo never broke 100). We are all very impressed, these cars will hang with nitro cars in the straight sections now, and of course pass them through the curves.

The one thing we all did notice was the lack of runtime. I know my old 3300s are not the best in the world, but the 3800 matched pack in the XXX-S didn't seem to last very long either. We're not even sure if they'll go a whole 5 minute race. We didn't time it with a clock or anything, so one of my tuning goals is to go back out there with a stop watch and see how long it actually lasts. They just seemed like short runs, but who knows, maybe the excitment of having that much power, sped up our mental clocks or something...more to come.

P.S. I'm probably gonna pick up one of those Orion Platinum Li-Po packs, so I'll have data reguarding them in reguards to the 5.5 systems soon as well...
you might have a bad battery or something , I get 6 1/2 minutes out of my old 3300's and almost 9 minutes out of my 3800's with the 5.5 motor, Ill let you know soon with the 4.5

I called Novak and they wont give out the KV#'s for their velociti motors. The reason they gave was that its is kind of a false way to compair motors. Some companies were taking the ratings under different conditions and so on.

I tried to work out the KV ratings and the 6.5 is 8800KV, the 5.5 is 10300KV and the 4.5 is 11800KV.

I stuffed that up. The KV ratings are: 6.5 7300KV, 5.5 8050, 4.5 8800.
I don't know how right they are but I imagine they would by pretty close.

Well, it turns out I was mistaken, he was running some old 3300s as well.(he had just shown me his new packs, I assumed those were the ones he was using) And like I said we didn't use any kind of timer, just seemed brief. We started talking about 4 minute races, but if my old 3300s can last a 5 minute run, everyone elses should be able to...

And yah, let us know what that balistic missile, I mean 4.5 does...

Thanks Black knight remember to roll the throttle on slowly
Later.........
Well i ran the 4.5 last night, the motor is fast, lots of nice mid range response. Sadly the track layout had changed from the previous week, the track was very tight with one straight so i could not compare much to the 5.5 i ran a week earlier. The 4.5 def has a good amount of more power, plenty of wheel spin lol

Atleast 6mins, not close to dumping during a 5min run even with a practice prior to the start. The track was quite tight not taxing on the motor or cells at all. Temps i did not check.

I knew that the 4300 is a 10.5 turn motor and the 5800 is a 8.5 turn motor. The difference between them is 1500 so that would mean the every two turns taken the KV is increased by 1500.
