That was just with the stock gearing that the car came with... we ran it with more gear and it went quite a bit faster...the video camera just crapped out on those passes...sorry!

33 mph for a prototype is good. You know when it comes out, sensorless manufacturers will be quaking in their boots.

what we dont know is what type of batterys is in that car. you also have to remiember the mini inferno is bigger than a 18t or similar car. for all we know that could have been a 6 cell pack going 33 mph in a heavier car.

As it stands now the rotor shaft diameter is 2.0 mm. With the design of our motor the rotor can be replaced so I don't see there being any problem with us offering a 2.3 mm shaft at some future point in time.

Great Car you choose to show off the Motor BTW. Little angst about the fit of the final esc given the size of the GTX in comparison to smaller platforms like the M18 pro.

That video is with a 2 cell lipo (7.4V) with the lowest stock gearing in the Kyosho Mini Inferno...

We will try to get more video posted as time permits.

Until another company comes out with a brushless ESC that you can program and update from your computer then I will be sticking with my Mamba.

The manufacturers, not the end user will be quaking in their boots. Yes, hooking it up to your p.c. is good, but, how often do you actually do it? I know I have used mine 3x...afterwards, its set and forget. With a sensored system, the need to hook it up to a pc to adjust throttle curves are a moot point. NOVAK RULEZ! When the system drops, you can have my mamba.

You read it here, when I get my Novak Mini system, I will give away the Mamba I got in my car. Less than 10 runs on it with the USB sync. Continental U.S. only.
