Just put your GTB in brushed mode and then turn the drive frequency all the way down; this will make the GTB the same as the GTX with the stock-racing profile.

Default GTB wires

Ping
there are few ways to do this...just try to keep the wires as short as possible to keep the weight down.

I never really like to solder all three wires onto the brushed motor itself.
so I would use 3 quick connect plugs (corally if you like em) male/female ends.
on the GTB side solder the quick connects on the A, B and C staggered about 1/4 from each other
then for the motor side cut 4 pieces of wires.
1 piece will go on the end bell of the motor then cut a slot into the wire casing and attach the 3 wires onto that and solder on quick connect onto that staggered to match the lengths of the A, B and C wires (prior step) make sure to fully cover all the quick connect with heat shrink (color coded if you can get it) all the way over it.

Now you can switch from brushless to brushless just by soldering two wires, the one to the negative terminal on the motor and the positive.

Here is how to make a modified 3 pin Deans connector. No clue if it works for the GTB the same as it does for the LRP:

The "official" way that Novak shows is quite confusing:

Default LRP

the LRP uses one less wire when running brushed.
the A,B and C wires all have to connect to negative terminal of the brushed motor.

Nexus is right set the frequency to match a GTX profile....but I usually ran with the default setup.

hopefully Novak will simplify this process with any future brushless speedo.
