I went back and looked at your twin Turnigy bike build thread, and it looks like I have the new Generation 2 Turnigy C80100-130; and your build might have used the first Generation. My silver outrunner bell looks longer than yours and is 3.130 in. ish from memory. Also mine has a big, like 2 inch ish bearing on the stator bell, I also have the screws on each end. (ish is a technical term that means I'm too tired to go back downstairs and remeasure it... so I go from memory!)
That said, I may have much more dead space in my version of the C80100 near the fixed bell than you do.
Looking at my flux chart it implies my magnets are around 1.5 inches long. Do you know how long yours are?
Always a twist, isn't there?
You're right that my motors are the old-style with no lower skirt bearing like the fancy new style you've got. We both have identical sized stators though, so I would ass-u-me our magnets were also roughly the same length, and that your magnets just sit up a bit higher than mine to make room for the skirt bearing. This might mean my halls are ok where they are at height-wise.
