Default Novak Explorer II and ESC questions

Hey guys,


Stupid Question here:

I just bought a used T4 and it came with a Novak Explorer II ESC. I like it, but I dont like the fact it doesnt have reverse. I'm planning on racing this truck, so do you all run ESC's with reverse. I can drive and manuver the truck just fine without the reverse, but not sure if I will need it in race trim.

I guess my question is, are most racers using reverse or not.

In a race setting, reverse is not allowed. Most race models are forward only high dollar ESCs. Some sport models have a reverse that can be disabled.
Hope this helps.

Well that explains alot to me. I have never raced offroad, only carpet, and I've been away from the hobby for about 10 years+ I guess I will just keep, and practice with what I have.

Thanks Alot,
Dave

ddcarter3 is right, in just about every big race using reverse will get you disqualified.

At the local level, they might let you get away with it, meaning no dq's, but if they see you using it, the will tell you to stop, that's why there are marshalls.
