So possibly in the future something will at an slightly higher price point? I think the people are anxiously awaiting a high zoot Novak speed control.

A lot higher price point......

But, yes, we will have one.

The complete Havoc 1S system we are discussing in this thread will be $159.99.

$159 is a great entry level price point and I hope it helps get more people to try out 1/12. Can you tell us the footprint size at this time?

All of these Havocs----1S, 2S and 3S have the same footprint and weight:

~ ESC Footprint: 1.18” x 1.54” (30.0 x 39.1 mm)
~ ESC Weight (without wires): 1.50 oz. (42.6 g)

We incorporated our SmartBoost circuitry into the Havoc 1S design:

Quote:
SMART BOOST 1-CELL LI-PO STEP-UP MODULE

~ Increases a 1-cell Li-Po battery pack's voltage from 3.3V - 4.2V to 6V, which provides enough power to run almost any servo and receiver

~ Provides consistent power to vehicle’s electronics during entire charge

~ Li-Po Cut-Off Circuitry for battery protection

I just picked up a one cell LiPo and the Smart Boost, looking forward to getting it on the track... I so hate NiMh packs. Might have to check into the 1s speedo as soon as it's available.

Will this be available in the GTB in the future?

Before we incorporate the SmartBoost circuitry into other controllers, we will want to see how popular single cell racing becomes. There may be a market for single cell/"modified" racing, in which an esc for 3.5 and above would be appealing.

I'll check and see if we have plans for additional offerings. We still offer the GTB-4 Cell esc on line. Although, this earlier esc works fine on 4 NiMH/1S, it has no lipo cut-off and you still might need a booster or receiver pack to operate receiver and servo.

We are quoting an October ship date; however, we understand that racing season is coming up. We will ship as soon as available.

It's awesome how you are keeping us racers up to date!

Are there any plans for a smaller updated GTB with 1s circuitry cut off / booster installed?

In New Zealand we only run Pro12 Modified (no pro12 stock or anything), and i'm just getting prepared for the lipo pro12 rules next year. would love to see novak come out with a small modified 1s speed controller, I have the novak booster, but would like to keep my electronic components to a minimum

I'm at the Summer Sizzler in Magna, (Salt Lake City) Utah and just ran my 12R5 with a single cell LiPO, the GTB 4 cell 10.5, and the Novak booster... man this little sucka is fast. I like it so much I'm not sure if I will get the new system when available... this setup is working nice. Awesome job guys... quality stuff.

Novak two. The only problem I see with the new Havoc is the heat sink. I dont think your gona get a 1/12th body over that speedo. Its just too tall. Might want to think about dropping the heat sink like the 4cell gtb. I had a 4cell gtb and thought the size and layout was perfect for 1/12th.

We will be offering a plate for the Havoc, much like the plate we have for the GTB.

Since single cell racing is also being introduced for other racing segments (oval), where size is not a major issue, we may decide to offer a separate Havoc 1S version with the plate installed. It will depend on feedback from customers. But, we will offer the plate as an accessory.

I have discussed the possibility o including the new SmartBoost circuitry into the existing GTB platform, but apparently there is not enough room. We do have a new case design in the works, so we may be able to offer a 1S racing controller. The existing GTB plate---linked above---also fits our upcoming Havoc Pro controller featuring a motor limit 3.5 and above.

All of our escs, from the beginning, have been designed to work on 4 NiMH or 1S----low voltage. So unless you require a booster for your servo or receiver, the existing controllers should work fine for single cell racing

I think you're probably right that it won't fit under a 1/12th body. There's a Havoc in my Slash right now, and it definitely has a tall profile. Maybe the new Proto body will fit, given that it's supposed to have more room underneath and if you can scooch the ESC close enough to centerline.

On the other hand, I have an LRP TC Spec that I am using for 1/12th. I just ground down the fins and it fits fine. It had no effect on performance. The 1S voltage doesn't generate a lot of heat.

I suspect the Havoc will work great with a little hand-fitting. At least I hope so, considering I pre-ordered a 13.5 system yesterday
