What you have to do is send it back to Novak so they can put the smoke back in

Default Sounds like you hooked up the neg and pos wrong.

You blew the cap the first time then you cut if off. You must of did it the same thing again. It happens, I did it once myself and had to replace a power cap. Send it to Novak, they can repair it at a cost. They make great products, but you can't blame them for your mistake. Read directions.

Why, specifically, does Novak “suck”? What personal experience have you had with either their product or customer service that has so dissatisfied you. Sharing this type of information would be extremely helpful to the RC community.

Running the ESC with out the cap will definately cause some problems for the ESC after a handful of packs. We've not had any luck running them with "No Cap".

Thanks

JDK race team....wow.!!!

first you mention that you blew youre power cap,which means you did something wrong.
then you say you cut it off,again something WRONG.!!!
and then it shorts from youre cells touching...WRONG AGAIN..!!! then you top it all of by saying NOVAK SUCKS...!!!!

man i have been testing the system from the start and have never had such things go wrong.
Its wrong to run a company down when you are not sure where the mistake came from......
