Here are the latest pictures and some explanations of what they represent. They will be posted on http://www.greyborgusa.com
later this week when I have time to update the site so I can stop posting as much business stuff on this site as I'm mainly on the site for tech, not so much to sell stuff (I appreciate being able to do both).
New bigger 16mm axles with 10mm flats which are 224mm / 8.8" long total length with the threaded portion being 40mm / 1.57" on each side.
Greyborg was unable to get the mating connector for the hall sensors this time around, so you will need to cut it off and supply your own. This is a fairly trivial thing to do as I do it to every motor I own since I like small connectors for the halls and use ones made by Molex I buy at Fry's on all my motors and throttles. We might be able to get some in the future, I'll ask but it is what it is for now.
Here are some new pictures as promised. Previous motors had the covers painted all black, time ran out this time and it was unable to be done, but can still be done by you if you wish. The covers are also slightly different vs the last covers because they came from a different manufacturer.
My supply after I powered up each motor to verify it worked, my back hurt after doing this to over 400kg worth of motors, too much bending over for my spine which is falling apart and now keeping me up awake late. Good news is most motors are boxed up just waiting for me to add the waster and axles nuts before being sealed and addressed for pick up by UPS.

Drilled holes for bicycle spokes spokes, 28 of the motors come with dual pattern
Variance in stator position, as you can see the motors stators are in slightly different positions due to they way they were manufactured, axles are all identical.
Magnets in the magnet ring vary a little in position from motor to motor so it's not wise to swap stators from one motor to another unless you verify it fits perfect with full magnet coverage.

Motor installed into a 150mm dropout
Wire side clearance, C washers will be needed, hope to get some made soon for those that want to buy them
Freewheel side clearance, I'm supplying a washer that will prevent the freewheel from binding when using a single speed, also shows the longer threaded portion of the axle.
Motor was re-centered, this is the distance measured from the frame to the outside spoke flange on the freewheel side, measurement done properly, then caliper positioned to illustrate what was being measured.
Motor was re-centered, this is the distance measured from the frame to the outside spoke flange on the disc side, as you can see you should be able to get the flange pretty close to center if not exactly centered with spacers.
New 16mm axle installed.
If you are using SWBluto's simulator you can use the esim file I've come up with to play around with different wheels and scenarios. Right click, save file as and download http://dynamic.opticalanarchy.com:8080/zombie/bike/greyborg/hubzilla.esim
I'm not guaranteeing this is 100% accurate, but it should be pretty close based on observations. Bicycle is modeled after my bike and everything seems to match up really well.
His simulator was available in this thread, I think it's still in there somewhere http://www.endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6892
If not I'm hosting it on my website with the hubzilla.esim file already in it.http://dynamic.opticalanarchy.com:8080/zombie/bike/ebikecalc17/
Mechanical / Electrical Info:
Bare motor weight is 22.4lbs / 10.18Kg (see picture on scale for reference)http://dynamic.opticalanarchy.com:8080/zombie/bike/greyborg/hubzillaweight.jpg
Continuous power handling: 4000W (please read the following note about wattage ratings)
, if you stall the motor at zero RPM and put 4000W into it of course you will melt it, even 1000W could would damage it if left stalled for long enough. Your wheel size plays a large factor in this, the larger the wheel the less efficient the motor, on flat surfaces this is generally a non issue, but if you choose to climb steep hills with a 29" wheel using this motor I suggest you carefully monitor the motor temp and also the controller temperature. The same general rules that apply to all hub motors still apply to this one and must be observed. This motor is capable of surviving many situations where other motors would not, but caution must still be used.
Motor has hall sensors at 120 degrees
Phase wires are around 11 gauge (and have been fine with me dumping 10KW into it and not getting warm)
All wires exit through the bearing on the disc brake side and not through a hollow axle like 9C motors
Axle diameter is 16mm with 10mm flat
Axle Length is 224mm / 8.8" with 40mm of thread on each side, the center section of the axle is 144mm/5.67" wide
Unloaded Motor Speed was measured at 9.3kV, see video below
Motor comes with 36 4mm holes for motorcycle spokes and also some with the option that have an additional 36 holes drilled for 12-14 gauge bicycle spokes, please specify when ordering.
Motor only accepts a single speed freewheel in most cases, I haven't heard of anyone running more than a single speed on�it.
Can be fit into some 135mm drop outs if the drop outs are made 10-15mm wider. It's not recommended to widen and aluminum frame more than a few mm at most, this is a personal decision (and any frame damage / failure that occurs is on you) if you choose to do so.
This motor kicks some serious butt and is the most powerful hub motor I know of available for a bicycle. It produces scary amounts of torque if you feed it volts/amps. This motor was adopted from motorcycle/scooters for use in bicycles.
Here are some estimates I've made based off of simulating this motor after riding mine and observing it. These may not be exact but they should get you into the general ball park of what to expect. It has been very easy on my controller. I personally run mine at 125V (30S3P LiPo), 85A battery (have run 105A battery several times) and 115-130 phase amps (it's hard for me to ride at 130 phase amps due to pulling 20+mph power wheelies if not completely leaned over the bars and even then it still picks the front end up a little) with a highly modified Lyen 18 FET IRFB4115 controller pushing over 10KW into it. This motor is pretty tame on controllers. I will try to get some idea of efficiency vs my 9C 2806 with the same diameter rear tire next weekend after I'm feeling better.

For those wondering about hill climbing power (with lots of written details) see this thread or to skip the nerd stuff just watch the video belowhttp://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=37007Speed of this motor
, it is 9.3kv laced into a pretty beefy 24" wheel run on a 6 FET sensorless controller set to 100% throttle. At 50.2V input it runs at 468 RPM. This is an earlier motor they were testing with that has different covers but the stator and windings are identical. It is Markobettis' personal motor.
Hill climbing test video
This is a short video of my friend doing some high speed flybys while I took video of him having fun. Had the power turned down to 70A so it was more ridable because I've been commuting on it. He topped out at 55mph in the video. He's also 6'5' 220lbs.
