I am using Novak GTB. Since it caught fire sent it to Novak for claim. Eventually they replace the same type with LiPO feature.

Fact is when you purchase it, they already improving the existing model. The time gap is quite near. So customers have to make do with NiMH.

I thought all GTB comes with built-in Li-po cut off

I just bought the old GTB/velociti 3.5r. Please confirm as i already confuse....
Does mine have the li-po cut off?

Hey Guys,

The easiest way to tell if your GTB has lipo capability is to do this:

Take your GTB out of your car...

turn it upside down so that you can see the components through the bottom of the case

Locate the large square component in the corner of the ESC...

Rotate the ESC so that this component is in the bottom left-hand corner of the ESC from your perspective.

Look over to the right and you should see a series of gold plated empty holes

If your ESC only has 5 holes, this is the older non-lipo layout.

If your ESC has 6 holes, this is a newer GTB that is lipo capable.

Note: If you have a 4 cell GTB with the 6 holes even though the boards are lipo capable, the software should not allow for it... being as that the ESC was designed for use with 4 cells there is no need for it to run with 2S/6cell

Hope this helps!

As always, if you guys have questions about ANY Novak products you can email us here at [email protected] or you can email me personally at [email protected]
