Since the motor appears to only have a bearing at one end, are you going to stick a pillow bearing on the other end of whatever adapter/shaft you use on it? I ask because if it's designed for a prop, the bearings and such at teh other end probably arent' setup for side-loading so much as axial, right? Kinda like a drill? (which is why I think a lot of the RC motors meant for helis and planes dont' seem to always hold up so well in chain drive stuff without bearing mods)
BTW: those blocked out squares make me more interested in what might be behind them than what is actually in the pics.

Btw.. do you plan on testing it on an dyno
Probably... AFTER the race! right
That motor must have strong glue holding the magnets!.. they are subject to the centrifugal force!
The winding look like a reversed HT motor stator with central rotor...
Do you have any numbers about the efficiency?
