Default Which Brushless System?

I am thinking of making the jump to brushless and LiPo but don't know which system to choose. There are a lot like LRP and Novak, but who makes the better brushless system? I have no experience with brushless so this whole thing will be a learning curve for me.

Default I'll jump into the pool feet first

Novak Novak Novak. GTB rulez, motors SMOKE the competition AND their Customer Service takes it over the top.

Do a LRP sphere TC speedo

And a LRP, Orion, Peak, Novak, just one of those motors, there all awsome motors.... I prefer the Orion


LRP has the best speedo IMO, and its the nicest, but some people have said thats there CS of the speedo's is slow, other's will say its faster then heck.. For me it was fast as heck, so I cant complain anywhere

what's better Nike or Reebok? That's where this type of question will take you. Both are really good systems. I don't want to give you a bias answer since I run for Novak. My answer to you is this.....do a little homework on your own comparing the two systems and then go to your local track and talk to a few racers that have these systems and make your mind up then. I really don't think that you are going to get the answer that's right for this question.

Try them all. Then sell the one you don't want. I went Novak all the way.
I tried LRP, Mamba and Novak.
The Novak blew the other 2 away.

Default GTB or XBR

I have no intentions of ever running anything but the "stock touring car" class. Is there a real difference? I do not want to get beat by better equipment. IF you were to run one then the other whould there be any difference?

If you have no interest in running nothing higher than stock, the XBR economically is more sound. The GTB is for those who want it all..the ability to go from stock, to 19t to the 3.5.

Go with the tried, true, and solid Novak system. The GTB system will give you more options down the road and the best performance out of the box with the Sintered Rotors, but if stock is all you need, get the XBR system and get a Sintered Rotor for your 13.5.
