Default ORCA -- 11.5T ? 8.5T?

Recently, some of my friends told me ORCAís 11.5T motor was very fast. In some races, it shows the advantage obviously.
Then I bought a ORCA QX1 11.5T and want to find the reason. After measuring, it shows 3800KV which is much higher than other brand. As we know, the 11.5T motor will have about 3000KV in no timing mode.
I asked an engineer of brushless motor to disassemble this ORCA 11.5T motor and found it only had 8.5 TURNS. I was shocked, is this a mistake or cheating ?


I went to ROAR official website and try to check whether this motor is on approve list. It is not.
And another statement was found instead as follow:

ORCA ESCís suspended for six months
As a result of actions that were in direct violation of instructions from a ROAR Executive Committee member, ORCA brand speed controls are not permitted in ROAR sanctioned competition for the next six months. The violation stems from a discussion about the true amount of timing in the second generation of ESC from the brand, in which it was not in compliance with the zero timing specification as indicated in the rules. Given that it was only days before the event, it was instructed that the new ESC and the software could not be used. Upon further inspection, it was determined that the new software was loaded on to the previous generation ESC, in direct violation of the timing rule itself, and the instructions of the Technical Director. The six month suspension will take effect 5/1/11, and assuming a satisfactory agreement can be made before the 11/1/11 expiration, the ORCA ESCs can be considered for use in ROAR competition again.
