just got my GTB installed in with my 13.5pro motor in my second car. Whats the best profile for it? I do "stock" class racing with it. I like having reverese just in case (especially if its like the XBR reverese where you have to push the trigger back twice to activate it). Was leaning towards profile 5. Any thoughts?

My favorite was #1. It was as smooth as it gets.

It doesn't seem to run nearly as well as my first one. I sent them an email asking why I got someone's broken, janky old 13.5 as a warranty replacement, and they didn't respond. It's a person that had communicated with me prior about the status of my return. So, thanks for that, guys. I can see why people are so critical of LRP's warranty work in the US.
Your motor should have been repaired or replaced with a new one. PM your address and I will send you a new motor.

It seems AE is trying to correct some of the earlier complaints of LRP's much maligned US customer service. I appreciate that, and hope it's a trend that continues. The LRP equipment is arguably the very best on the market, and it would be a shame to let a bad CS reputation hold them back.

Default Roar brushless 17.5 and 13.5 approvals

I have seen that the brushless motors need to be approved prior to the R.O.A.R.
Nats race. I hope they have all sent motors for submissions and approvals.

Novak submitted our 10.5, 13.5 and 17.5 SS Pro motors for ROAR approval last week. These motors are exactly the same as the Novak BL motors purchased by customers in the last several years. No changes in our existing motors were required to meet the new stock rules.

What sort of warranty do the 13.5 motors carry over here in the UK?

Mine just crawled to a stop one day and hasn't worked since.

CML is Novak's distributor in the UK. They will perform the warranty service on Novak products that they distribute. Your LHS should be able to advise you.
