Probably not, as Novak employee's have stated on RCTech that they are playing will all kinds things in testing, just nothing for public consumption at this point. I'm sure the GTB has the capability to be programmed with a little tweak, but unless they release to the public.....

if you think novak is sitting around doing nothing your nuts.. keep in mind that with current technology novak can be testing software and such without even changing the hardware, as new hardware is being developed.. as stated earlier, waiting a bit allows them to "trump" current technology... time will tell..

Quite a long ago, someone on rcetch said about BL something like " computer geeks are the next motor gurus "

that quote was pretty prophetic huh ?

To stay more or less on topic... I ALSO WANT TO SEE A NEW NOVAK ESC RELEASED !

We are seeing the "light at the end of the tunnel" on many of our upcoming controllers, with many cool, new features. However, small is not one of the new features. We have almost finished releasing our new Havoc escs and systems and shipping our Ballistic mod wind motors and accessories. Soon, we will be releasing the Ballistic Spec winds and then, on to our new esc releases, etc.

Yes it was an off the shelf motor. People had noticed that the motor had a black band around the motor and claimed it was not legit, but what they failed to notice is that the motor had the proper orange timing ring around the endbell.

That probably does make sense, because their speedos are buletproof. I have seen almost any brand speedo burned and I have seen GTB's pushed beyond their limits, used in applications where they are not meant to be used, but they just keep going and going. That's why I am keeping a GTB as a backup speedo. But yeah, it would be really nice to see something new from them.

It probably is a prototype since it is Steve Weiss's car and he is R&D for Novak as well as an employee for them. Go in his thread and ask him about it.
