I know of one that died really early in its life.

But I also know of GTB's that have done the same.

There were only a few around here a couple of months ago now there are a lot. They are butter smooth and tons of power I havent felt any coging in them.

Form seeing what one of the guy's at my local track with one. From what I can tell is that it works a lot better then the Novak ESC, and you have more controll over what you can do with the feel of the motor.

Anyone looking to buy a Novak GTB? I'd really like to replace it with another SP GT. I really like mine. Running a SP GT w/Novak 6.5 in a CRT .5.

I hear that RC Corral dude is pretty cool...

Been using SP brushless at the Surf City Classic yesterday with 6.5 motor on my Lazer ZX-5 SP. The speedo's blazin' and I was able to pace with the local fast guys in qualifying and only few positions off from A Main. I highly recommend get the SP along with the motor.
