...the truth of what you are wanting to do, is exactly how the brushless motors were designed.

One of the original thoughts when bringing brushless motors to racing was the ease of changing winds, and instead of having a dozen motors - you could have a couple stators of different winds - easy to adapt to different classes, and/or smaller or larger tracks.

Not sure about reedy's (I haven't looked at my reedys for a while) but most of the motors did some type of color i.d. someplace on the stator for "Spec Class" stators ie 21.5 GREEN - 17.5 YELLOW - 13.5 ORANGE - 10.5 BLUE I believe were the colors.

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for

The Novak Ballistic series is set up that same way. You just change the stator to change the motor for whatever class you want to use it in. If all you are wanting to do is change a 21.5 motor to a 17.5 to run a 17.5 class yes it is legal.

In short...No, not legal.

8.8.2.1.1
Quantity requirements have been alleviated by ROAR in 2010. Product
availability is required to no less than three retail outlets prior to publication on approval list. All documentation must be submitted to ROAR Technical Director prior to publication on approval list. The manufacturer has to provide an address of a hobby shop or the like, that any driver who wishes to obtain these motors at the time of the approval can do so. No hybrid (mixing of parts from approved brushless motors) allowed

But if it is a club race and if you can explain to the track runner about your money saving reason....I don't see why not. (but not unless you are winning over the rest of the field by a lap or so, then you will be called cheater no matter what...)

I think for NOVAK it is a exception because Novak motor does not have the motor turn number printed onto the can.....so, if you changed the stator to 17.5, and NOT running the colored middle ring or peel off the sticker, no one will know what motor that is...

But REEDY SONIC motor, I think the back end of the CAN, it printed the motor turn on it....if you changed the stator inside, the outside, will still be called 21.5....

Speed Passion is the same...it printed the motor turn number on the end cap and the can itself...if I changed the stator to 17.5...the end cap will still be 21.5. Not unless I have another 17.5 end cap to make it a match...
