I wouldn't be surprised since the GTB runs brushed as well

Probably not, Novak has some old ESC's still available...I think what you'll see is a massive drop in price.

We sell them at $109.99 new in our store, $40 price drop, and we haven't sold one in months...

I had a used one for sale and had to pretty much give it away. Who runs brushed anymore? Bashers mainly....and what do they want? An ESC with reverse...

Thumbs up

I still used brushed for offroad because, among other things, the smaller electronics are easy to place, especially in my XX4. If they're dropping the prices on these, I'll probably have to pick up a couple more

I just got a 2nd hand GTX. Greatest brushed ESC I have used.

Hope there are a few around for a year or 2 yet as I may get another.

Yay for brushless, brushed gear is getting sooooo cheap

You should get a Tekin RS... pretty darn small for a brushless.

I just got 2 GTXs from Novak through Shoppatron for $70 each. They are apparently "remanufactured", but the boxes were factory sealed, and the ESCs looked brand new without any marks on the unit anywhere.

Your right on the Tekin RS. Good ESC for the size of it.
