Default Novak GTB/SS10.5 Pro Brushless System

Hi,
I intend to change to a brushless system which is nearest to 23T motor.
Is this the one I should look at?
What does "SS" means?
Can the GTB be used for brushed motor if I intend to go to Tamiya Races?
When I used it for brushed, will I get reserve or brake only function?
Is there a difference between GTB and GTB SS?
Does SS means it needs a 2.4Ghz receiver otherwise it won't work?

The 10.5 is supposed to be like a 19 turn brushed motor but I have heard that is is faster, perhaps like a 17 turn.

You can use the GTB with brushed motors. Have you checked out the Novak site and read up on the stats? I don't think you get reverse....

the 13.5 with the sintered rotor is advertized as an equivelent to 27T motors but I've heard theyre closer to 23T.

Thanks for the info.
Do I really have to use 2.4Ghz for the GTB SS model?

I have checked the novak website but no idea what it meant. Got me confused.

SS refers to Super Sport, Not Spread Spectrum.

The GTB is now sold in a Combo with the "SS PRO" motors.

The GTB for 2.4 systems is not available in a combo, only by itself.

sorry but this is not entirely correct...

SS does refer to Spread Spectrum when talking about the esc, and it will only work with a 2.4g radio.

SS when talking about the motor, means super sport, and means it had the sintered rotor and ribbed can.

FYI...if you are using a gtb to go from brushed to brushless a lot...it can be tedious. You have to solder wires together and reprogram the esc. It works, but you may want to think about just sticking to one. IMHO

The 13mm Rotor isn't really intended to allowed for 10.5 and 13.5 racing. It takes the "spec" out of it, and will create a motor of the month club. Or "Rotor Of the Month". This is exactly what BL is trying to stop.

The motors are externally identifiable, so tracks should be able to tech for this.

To answer you question, we don't ever intend to offer the 13mm rotors in any of the slower motors, and most likely not in the lower turn motors either.

It doesn't look like the 2.4 version GTB will in a combo.

Some guys have reffered to the SS GTB as the one that comes with an SS Pro Motor. I'm just trying to be as clear as possible.

he may work for Novak, but the answer wasnt clear> Mostly because the question wasnt clear in the first place, as it referred to both the motor and the speed control. Which is why I answered the way I did.

Charlie: hope I didnt tread on your toes...
