Novak Ballistic 550 Brushless Motors and Wound Stators

New from Novak:

Novak isn’t a stranger to innovation. It has repeatedly brought original products and technological advancements to the R/C industry, and, to no one’s surprise, Novak is doing it again! The Ballistic 550 Brushless Motors (#3504-#3506) are the first 550-sized motors to break into short course competition and easily outperform traditional 540-sized motors. The Ballistic 550s are so powerful because of their extra long stator and rotor magnet. In fact, the stator and rotor magnet are twice the length of 540-sized motors, giving them twice the torque of an equivalent 540 motor. The more torque, the more speed that is generated! Additionally, these larger-sized motors run cooler and more efficiently than their 540 counterparts. These high-powered machines are the motors of choice at small, indoor race tracks and easily install into OFNA’s® Hyper 10 SC Pro 4×4 Kit™, OFNA’s® Jammin’ SCRT 10 4X4 Kit™, Traxxas’® Slash 4X4 4WD Short Course Trucks™ and many other 1/10-scale short course trucks.

In addition to its already impressive features, including low-speed driveability and no cogging, the Ballistic 550s have also been fitted with rugged 5mm output shafts for maximum resilience and race life. Additionally, the motors are sensor-based for a smooth and controlled power delivery.

BALLISTIC MEANS VERSATILITY

And like the Ballistic name implies, these motors are completely rebuildable and feature interchangeable wound stator construction. There are four Ballistic 550 Wound Stators (#S6504-#S6507) available with more to come! A simple stator swap allows for easier experimentation at the track and cuts down on racing costs. And like all of Novak’s Ballistic motors, the Ballistic 550s feature a replaceable rotor, front end bell, sensor harness, bearings and other replaceable items.

Novak’s Ballistic 550 Brushless Motors – 4.5T, 5.5T & 6.5T (#3504-#3506) and Ballistic 550 Wound Stators – 4.5T, 5.5T, 6.5T & 7.5T (#S6504-#S6507) are scheduled to ship in May 2010.
