The Wraith is a 25mm dia. motor...as opposed to the 20mm Mamba 1/18th scale motors. It can handle about 50% more power than your typical 20mm.

2S maximum

:mad:

2S maximum. That is too bad. Wish Novak would at least have gone for 3S. At 3S voltages, the efficiency is greatly improved...less current is required. Wonder if it is a BEC issue?

Wow, that is pretty incredible performance...especially compared to Linger's results. Is that a new technology or the stuff they are already using?

That is a good question.

When I watch the Cellpro display during startup it will slowly increase the charge rate, then decrease it back slightly and hold it at that level. I'm guessing it is...

I like the 6.5 amp available charge rate, and the fact that you can choose to charge only to 4.15...if cycles are more important to you than full power. However, I'm concerned it could be too easy...

By the way...if we have to be worried about how much paint we sprayed on our cars, or buy the thinnest most fragile body, we are going in the wrong direction again.

I think as soon as you are talking about buying motors and sorting them you are walking away from the concept of fair and simple racing for beginners.

That goes right to my point of what is wrong in competitive racing. How much does a motor cost you in time and money after you've done all that? Also, just how long is that motor good for, before...

I believe that is the way some balancing chargers work. They charge the cells to about 4.1V and then slow down....varying the current to the cells that are lower...until all cells reach 4.2V.

Well that is one way that might be difficult to cheat. But what about the mod classes when you can open the motor. Somone might rewind theirs. Regardless, maybe we don't even need a "slower"...
