We have a younger guy at our track that is running a GTB with a CO27 brushed stock motor and it runs that fine. The only thing that sucks is 3 wires go onto the negative of the motor, but you can eliminate that by having jumpers where the wires are soldered to the ESC if you want.

Yup, works just fine. Same gearing as with any other speedo.

Just be careful swiching between modes. Never give it full throttle right away when you switch to brushed mode. If the motor runs fine at low throttle you're good to go. If it doesn't turn over stop pulling the trigger and double check that it's in brushed mode.

If you will run stock, it is ideal for you to turn the drive frequency all the way down after switching modes; this makes the GTB the same as the GTX with the 'stock racing' profile (#1) .

Does great with CO27, no problems, low resistance = fast.

In order to run a brushed motor using a novak GTB, is it necessary to have the diode solder to the motor like the diagram in novak's website ?

I'm asking this for a friend of mine who wishes to run the GTB with a brushed motor but he doesnt have the novak diode...

You only need the diode if you plan on using brakes. If not (which is typically the case with one-ways) then it doesn't matter...

BTW: You don't need a Novak brand diode. Any old Shotcky diode will do, so get one at the local hobby store...

What if he's planning to just run stock 23t brushed motor??? From what I know, isnt the diode only a must with modified motors ?

I have a couple of 3A diodes, not the schotty ones....would that be ok?

3 amps won't cut it. Need a minimum of 30A.

I would recommend using it. Will keep your motor and, especially the ESC cooler.
