The LRP system is designed for small 1/10 use so it wouldn't be a good idea to use one in an Emaxx.

The Hacker system would probably handle more cells then the 14 cell limit Novak system but im not to familiar with that controlller.The Novak system is probably good for up to 40 odd mph on 14 GP3300 cells.

Default hacker system esc.

The hacker system could handle only 12 cells. Novak system 14 cells.
I Looked up the price.
-new hacker master esc is $290 and B50 8s BL motor is $150 and up..total $440
-new Novak HV system is $250 to $300 for both esc and BL motor..
Just wondering which is the over all better system.
Why? Because I know someone selling both system each for $250.
Just wondering should I just go with the hacker system.

I've been checking on a brushless system for an e maxx I'm building and after several months of talking to owners of both systems and reading everything I could find on brushless technology I'm saving for the Hacker.

the hacker most def out performs the novak but it's up 2 you in the end...i think if i had a choice i'd rather go for the hacker...i have seen the 2 run with identical setups and the hacker was way more potent!

If you use 820 sized drill motors they would be better than the novak and $50 cheaper.

I would go novak just because if something goes wrong at least you know you can get it fixed! My MGM ESC went on me and I think I'm going to be screwed. $185 down the drain

I've tried several Novak products over the years and my Pitbull does a better job of charging than either the Ironic or Me-lemon-ion pro. My Cyclone wasn't bad, as long as you didn't mind your buggy jumping off the table every time you switched it on or the speed with which it blackened comms. I thought something was wrong with my LRP V7.1 because my buggy just sat there when it was switched on and I got double the life out of my motors with it. The XXExtra worked fine, as long as my gas buggy never got over 10 feet away from my M8. After 3 trips back to Novak for "updates" I gained maybe 2 more feet of range. The Switch module in my M8 was pretty cool and worked real well for about 6 months before it just quit doing anything but filling the hole in the back of my radio. In fairness, Novak "updated" it for no charge and I sold it as soon as I got it back. I guess the N-Power and XXL receiver are the exceptions that prove the rule as I've got a 4 year old N that's still clicking right along and about a half dozen XXL's that are all doing just fine and some of them are up there in age as well. Please understand, I'm in no way trying to slag on Novak, just relating my personal experience with their products. I wouldn't mind giving the HV system a try if I could get a new one for less than a C note.


VWO: I tried to reply to your email and yahoo bounced it.

How can i handle such speed in a buggy? It just takes a little getting use to .... Throttle really kicks in, Torque!!! More than a schulze esc...
Easy on the brakes really sensitive. I would of got the Novak HV system because if anything goes wrong I could easily contact them. Hacker on the other hand I heard their customer service is not the greatest.. So far hacker system it's great for the price i paid for..
