Is the Novak gtb2 a good enough esc for this motor?
depending on what you're running it in, (SCT, i'm guessing), you're right on the borderline of the speedo's limit
according to the specs, a 3.5 is the limit for the speedo with a 540-can motor...if you're running a 550-can (which I think most SCT motors are, I could be wrong), then you're right at the speedos motor limit - and I wouldn't recommend it
even with other speedos (like the tekin, which I've run for years), the chassis the motor/speedo is going in also plays into the motor limit - which a lot of time, the manufacturer doesn't include
so I'd see if its possible to get a different motor, or maybe look at another speedo
but that's me
