Default Novak GT7 info.....

I just got a GT7 as a gift. Instead of selling it or re-gifting it, I decided to give it a go. I have been running Cyclones as well as other speedos.

Probably what I am looking for is some good tips or setups on the GT7 for 19t and 27T carpet/pavement racing?

Thanks,

Coop

I'm in the market for a new ESC. What do you guys think of the GT-7?

So for carpet do you suggest profile 7 minus drag brake... I am running an shaft with a 1-way, usually I use very little drag-brake.

it is agreed that GT-7 is a much improvement then its predecessor cyclone, very smooth power band and profiles can be selected without a external device. not to mention thier top notch customer service. I own one and love it !

it's all personal preference i guess, for me, i do not use any brake or drag brake with one-way. i usually let go the throttle and let the car roll through the corners

I usually do the same. I use very little drag and usually mess with the brake curve on my radio to fine tune it. Although with my current car I am debating on going back to a front ball diff. Not that I cannot control the 1-way but with the efficiency of a shaft wondering if I could be faster without it.

I guess my PTS will show me if I am right.

For stock you should run profile six and for modified I would run profile 4.

Do you think 6 would be too much for a carpet/rubber/chameleon setup?

I agree Corey, 6 is a good profile for stock, I've also tried 7/1 for stock but it seemed like I was missing a little top end.

Is there anything special about the Schottty diode on the new wire harness? I would prefer to solder on my own Schotty because it makes for a cleaner wire job.

The schotty that is prewired and shrink wrapped is different, can't remember how strong it is (like 2-4 normal schotty) but Novak sells them seperately if need be.
