Default novak slydr testing

ok so i tested the novak slydr esc with 7.5 brushless system today... heres what i got... first off when you look at the slydr youll notice it looks like a normal gtb system... it pretty much is anly a different color and a few things done to the electronics inside... mostly noticable when you read the instructions is the fact that now you can change the throttle control... alot like the mamba max esc only you dont point and click... theres 3 different throttle choices to help control take off and help you control your rc... well i tested the system with my cyclone hara edition on hpi type-t and type a tires only so far... i think that the 7.5 is overkill for drifting... but then again im used to an 8.5 and 13.5... running type t tires i felt no change as far as control... easier to push the car sideways due to the power... it took me a little while to get used to the power but i got it ok... im no pro... i put type a tires on and i noticed a big differance between the gtb 8.5, xbr 8.5 system and mamba max systems... it seems to have more torque than the other systems... it seemed easier to control than the others... so with this noted... plastic tires still feel the same where as i feel more incontrol of my rc with the novak slydr... heres some pics... oh and notice the box... gtb with a slydr drift spec sticker on it... sorry this is my second review of and item... the first was about a bmx part i test about 2 years ago... that of which i know way more about... hope you enjoy and please leave any feedback you may have... thanks...

That's very interesting.

So were you playing with the different throttle curves? How did that affect the handling? Did you feel that it helped?

We will offer all newly designed packaging when we begin shipping the SLYDR products domestically.

Any idea if novak's warrenty will cover if I ship the item from U.S to Singapore? I heard its warrenty is pretty good.

unless it can beat my FX-R for it's buttery smooth throttle feel, I'm going to be very hard pressed to switch over.
