Does anyone know if GTB comes with the 6.25V Li-po cut off circuitry?

No, you have to buy a separate cutoff circuit, this is available from Novak.

What is the difference between a SS13.5 Pro Stock Brushless motor and a EX13.5 Extreme Sport Brushless Motor?

I think the EX13.5 Extreme Sport is more similar to a 'Pro-tuned' stock motor wattage-wise...

The Extreme Sports Series are simply the old versions of the 13.5, 10.5, and 8.5. In other words, the Extreme Sports Series 13.5 = the older, non-Pro version of the 13.5.

This 13.5:

Equals this 13.5:


Novak has updated their motor chart wattages here.

The Pro versions have sintered rotors, ribbed endbells, colored timing rings (for identification). There are no other differences. (You can see a picture of the Pro 13.5 on the first page of this thread)

A good, 27T stock brushed motor puts out 120-135 Watts of power. The 13.5 with the bonded rotor puts out 165 Watts of power. With the sintered rotor, the 13.5 puts puts out a whopping 195 Watts of power.

If I were to guess, I'd say the 13.5 with a bonded rotor is equal to a 23-25T brushed motor. When the sintered rotor installed, I'd say it's around a 20-22T brushed motor.

after running my Pro 13.5 back to back with a regular stock motor I'd say its at least 2 tenths of a second faster per lap than a regular stock motor. All the speed is the grunt coming out of corners. Straight speed really wasn't that much different other than the first maybe 10 feet out of the corner. Translation is its at least a lap faster with most drivers...

I'd say it would be even faster if I could keep the diffs from chirping out of the corners... probably losing a tenth a lap right there...

Have you tried profile #3? That fixed it for me.

the only thing I did was up the drag brake to 40% instead of the stock 20 setting. it helped slow the car down a little entering the corners.

It was the first weekend I tried it out haven't had a chance to do much with it. whats the change in profile 3 is it a frequency change?

I don't know the specifics, but I believe it's a frequency change. It was suggested to me by a few people after I mentioned having similar trouble with the diffs, and it helped tremendously. I'm able to run the diffs at normal tension now, which definitely wasn't the case before. I didn't notice any change in the amount of "grunt" the car had, which is kind of surprising.

I checked on it and it lowers the min. drive frequency basically making it a little smoother on the bottom from what I was told... I'll give it a try. thanks

Yes and no, Yes, the Novak and LRP motors will run on each other's speedo's but you have to look at how many turns the speedo will handle.

Is there such a thing as "Drive Frequency" in the Brushless mode?
