On the other hand, I have an LRP TC Spec that I am using for 1/12th. I just ground down the fins and it fits fine. It had no effect on performance. The 1S voltage doesn't generate a lot of heat.
I suspect the Havoc will work great with a little hand-fitting. At least I hope so, considering I pre-ordered a 13.5 system yesterday
There seem to be a number of "grinders" out there. One user sent me a photo of a GTB HS ground down to the nub....
Novak users are resourceful.
