I feel your pain -

I've had two wives - One new and one used.
Neither one of them worked right either.

And there's warranty or no customer support for those.
Got rid of them both... The cheapest way to go, in more ways than one.

DITTO on the EXCELLENT Novak CS!

I had an input signal harness and fan issue initially with my Club Combo & Chuck got right on it and send me replacements!

My ESC went toes up after only 8-1/2 x 15 minute runs.
I called Novak CS - The rep said send it all in.
I sent the combo back.
Customer Service rep Ruth has kept me in the loop through the entire process = When they received the package, what was wrong with the ESC, and what needed to be replaced, the motor checks out fine, etc.

I received a UPS notice today = My combo is on it's way back to me!

After doing the math = The turn around time to diagnose, repair the problem and get it shipped out the door is LESS than the total transit time going and coming.

KUDOS Novak!!!

Thanks Chuck & Ruth!

Check your local rules. Some places are very picky about the width of the car. I believe uf1 allows 180 and 190 mm chassis. the f109 and f103 are 200 so you are left with the f104 and the fgx as the most common of the thinner cars. I would recommend the f104 if width is a concern. I have a highly modified fgx and it does well but it took a lot of work. the independent suspension is a lot cooler than a straight axle though.

Thanks Chuck & Ruth!

that wife quote was priceless....... definitely made me laugh

I must admit, when I have dealt with customer support from Novak, it has been TOPS! Came down to a price point for me. When it cost so much in shipping and I had to pay more for another esc than for the one I got, it was hard to justify.
