You might be able to keep up with the novak, hard to say. I have always found the novak to be like a 12 or 13 turn motor.
A brushless that is the same rpm as a 10 turn will most likely have more torque so you can actually get more speed by gearing it down more.
What size track are you running on? Indoor/ooutdoor, carpet/asphalt??
I don't have a good example of 10 turn motors, but I do have a movie of my car running a lehner basic 4200 and my firends car running a novak and we are both running agaist a couple of 8 turn brushed guys. If you are interested go here
My car is red and my name is matt, my firends car is black/silver/and red and his name is chuck. The two brushed guys are kevin and rob. The page many be a little slow.
