This is the Novak Ballistic 8, 2Y, 2,650kV Sensored Brushless Motor. The Ballistic 8 is specifically designed to withstand the rigors of today’s 1/8 racing arena. Novak listened to top-level racers to produce the most rugged, feature-rich motor available. The Ballistic 8 includes adjustable motor timing, an inter-changeable wound-stator design, and is built to ROAR specifications. It is a perfect fit for most 1/8 scale buggies, truggies and monster trucks.

Detailed Features:

  • NOVAK-DEVELOPED TECHNOLOGY: The first question anyone will ask is "What sets the Novak Ballistic 8 apart from the other brands?" Novak Electronics has been designing and manufacturing products in the USA using the best components and manufacturing processes from around the world since 1978, and sensored brushless motors since 2002—longer than any other manufacturer in the RC car market. Developing the Ballistic 8 started from the ground up at the Novak headquarters in Irvine, California. Each motor is hand-wound and is put through stringent tests to ensure the highest quality. Two motor winds are available:
  • PERFECTLY BALANCED ROTOR: For years, motor builders have struggled to keep their balancing weights on the motors. 1/8 scale motors operate at extremely high RPM, so adding weights to balance can become problematic. Novak’s Ballistic 8 rotor sets itself apart from the other brands in that it is drill balanced, which removes material. The fact that no epoxy weights are added to the rotor means trouble-free operation since it is virtually impossible for your motor to become out of balance. For further reliability, Novak uses four, high-strength Neodymium magnetic segments. These segments are secured not only with high-strength epoxy, but are also precisely located with machined guides that are keyed to the shaft to ensure exact magnetic alignment and prevent the magnets from slipping on the shaft. As a final step, each rotor is given a complete Kevlar wrap and rolled in epoxy to make certain no harm can come to the rotor during operation.
  • COMPLETELY REBUILDABLE DESIGN: 1/8 scale electric racing is one of the premier classes of off-road racing today. Having the option to fix any and every aspect of your equipment while at the track is crucial to a successful race weekend. Novak was the first to offer a completely serviceable, rebuildable brushless motor with the original Ballistic 540 and 550 motors, and is extremely pleased to bring this must-have feature to electric 1/8 racing. Every component or assembly of the motor can be purchased separately. The wound stator can even be interchanged to experiment with a different kV winds.
  • MORE FEATURES: One of the unique features of the Ballistic 8 is its adjustable mechanical motor timing. Simply loosen the three timing screws on the back end bell and rotate to the desired timing. Once the timing is set, the rear bearing cover can be removed by simply taking out two of the timing screws. This allows removal of the user-replaceable sensor harness and inspection of the rear bearing without altering the timing, and locks the sensor harness in place during normal operation. For problem-free and easy soldering to the ESC, the Ballistic 8 features widely-spaced solder tabs. Each rugged tab is spaced 35 degrees and is made from extremely heavy-gauge, low-loss copper. Finishing out its rugged design is its 5mm output shaft that is hardened for extra durability.
