I think the advantage that offroad has is mod is the dominant class. More mod = more opportunity to run brushless. I just want the chance to get some of Eddie0's HP and open it up on the 200 foot straight away!!!!!!! and we also run on foam tires outside....pure adhesion!

Besercoe - I was talking about the only speed control that is currently available that has decent throttle control...Novak. [/B][/QUOTE]

I would suggest you try a U-Force 75 controller.

2. Current brushless speed controls barely survive with the current 5800Kv motors. Thermal shutdowns are common when really fast guys use them in sedans.
Dude, Adrain just called me fast! LOL, I went into thermal 3 times at the Novak race...granted there was a problem with my Stator and once I put a different motor on there speedo I never shut down again....

But thanks for calling me fast Adrian,

Default BL

Actually, I see the problem like this, they are a little faster than a real good 19T but not as fast (the Novak system) as the common mod TC motor choices (ie 10T or lower). Kinda makes it tough to fit it in a place. I love the Novak system, and am sold on it 100%. Just cant wait for the rule books to get fixed and the new Novak mod sytem to come out. Those of us that got to see it run at the Novak race know what I am talking about. Stupid Fast!!!!!!!!!!! I am lucky in that our local track lets the Novak BL race with 19T since the track is so small it doesnt matter, the little bit of extra speed and the bunches of extra, off the corner rip, cant be used anyway.
