Novak Premium Ballistic Spec Racing Brushless Motor (17.5T)
This motor is by far one of the smoothest I have ever ran in the 17.5 "blinky" class!! We have the regular Ballistic 17.5's as well as a Orion VST Pro Stock 17.5 and this motor easily hangs with the Orion, possibly even out pulling it in regards to the torque. The vented end bell, ceramic bearings and red stator make this a power house motor for the competition to worry about! My boys and I run nothing but the 17.5 "blinky" class and this motor pulls the lowest temp readings after 5 min mains out of the bunch!)
