Novak Ballistic 8 1Y review - 01.24.2012, 02:14 AM

Mr. Bob Novak send me a 1Y 1514 stator to play with. The 1Y is 2850kV. I didn't ask what the coil resistance was. I was also told that the 1Y will be good to run 2s in a light buggy, which would enhance handling. I figure it will do good with some more timing on 2s in my Rustler or CRT.5.
Well anyways I swapped out the stators which is stupid easy. Soldered up the wires with 6mm bullets and hooked to the RX8, which is set for really low timing at the moment. I was expecting some more grunt at the lowend vs the D wind and I wasn't disappointed. Would make for a nice drag racing motor was the first thing I thought off when I saw it launch. The GRP tires held me back though.

I just did a few runs for now just to get a feel for it. Too damn tired today from work and kids and it's midnight as I'm writing this up.

Gearing was set at 47/18. Tires are some hard GRP's. Car is my black Ofna GTP. Batteries were the 4s1p GensAce hardcase. Tekin RX8 with the sensor being used.
Top speed was 50.2mph in about 137ft, and took about 4 long seconds with the GRP's. The motor has way more in it and I'll find out what it is when I have some more time.

Here are some pics:

Finally had some time to play some more with this new stator.

I did some "speedruns" up and down the street with the same gearing. After 5 minutes I brought it in to take some temps. Motor case was at 195F. I'm gonna put a fan on the motor and wait for the Cobalt rotor for the TX summer. I think my gearing is correct to run at the onroad track at Mike's hobby's, in Porter TX.

The motor was pulling 1200W continuously and a max of 2167W running on 4s1p lipo.

Been putting the hammer down on this new stator. I used a smaller pinion now for a top speed of 40mph or so. Temps stayed around 165F the whole time. I'm going to rig up a fan on the motor so I can run a bigger pinion again.
I'll post some more once I hook the motor up on 2s in my CRT.5 with some timing boost.

I used a 3s Lipo with this motor and it was still fun to drive. Torque was plentiful and still broke the tires loose. I ordered me some hard PMT tires and run this stator on 3s in the summer.

my lord the copper on that baby shines like no other! I wonder if one of these would be strong enough to pull a muggy around on a sensored setup? Are the truggy versions going to be released to the public you think? Awesome thread btw and its nice to see the guts of this bad boy!

I would think that the lower kv might be able too. The Truggy versions haven't been released. Dunno if Novak will build them.
