Best thing to do before taking a risk:

Like the guy said up above,

Give Novak a call, they know their motors better than anyone obviously.

If they say it's okay, then it's okay. However if they say it's okay and you try it and something goes wrong, well I'd hold Novak liable for that.

But they wouldn't give any false info, I'd definetly call them.

judging by what the website says, i'd go for anything above the 5.5R

GTB/Velociti 4.5R System is ideal for competition touring car applications.
(#3001)
GTB/Velociti 5.5R System is ideal for touring car and high-traction off-road applications.
(#3002)
GTB/Velociti 6.5R System is ideal for off-road and low-traction applications and faster than Velociti 7.5R.

don't get it! The 3.5 is strictly meant for onroad purposes. I suggest you stick with your 5.5R. You won't see much of a speed increase by buying the 3.5R, because the 3.5R has less torque to turn the larger tires so it will slow down, trying to turn the big tires so you won't see a speed increase.

Hi

OK the 3.5 and 4.5 have a higher Kv, so more motor revs BUT couldn't you just gear it down?

What is the sweet spot = highest efficiency for these motors?

by laws of mechanics, the closer to a 1:1 gear ratio, the more THEORETICALLY efficient it is.

way too hot for a truck. i have the 5.5 and its really more than the tranny can deal with for anything more than 6-8 runs. i bought the ss5800 motor, and running it with my gtb esc, my lap times got way better, although its still a handful on any surface less than perfect. it wheelies like crazy just like the 5.5 did, but its still more usable.
