It looks like ball park price for the 8.5 combo is ~$140, if they can keep the price below $150 I think that people will start to make the switch...that is about what it would take for me. I would love to try brushless but it is so darn expensive, and I have 20years of brushed stuff piled up, granted it is not the latest and greatest but this is for spec 4cell racing, the beauty is that you don't have to have the best to make a go of it.

This is excellent news. Do you have rough availability dates?

"Order Pending" for all Havoc/SS motor combinations on Tower's site. I was hoping the price would be a around $185, but still not bad.

You can pre-order the Havoc systems straight from Novak for $149.99:

It's common for Tower to list items at msrp or advertised retail when items are awaiting shipment. Price always comes in line after the items come in.

Yeah, the one Havoc system that is out is the 8.5, and it's in stock at Tower for $139.99, same as from Novak. I'm sure the higher-wind systems will be about $150 from Tower. Tower often has a $5-$15 off $150 coupon, so it could be an even more smokin' deal.
