All of the Kinetic programming can be adjusted through our One Touch™ button; however, several functions allow finer adjustments with the PC Option. We haven't made a final decision on the NovaLink---include it, coupon it, etc.

NovakTwo
is the curved adjustment novalink works on Timing too ?
example : Dynamic Timing Curved at multi point? rather than Advanced Timing Curved.
if that's possible would be great!

and is there possible to make delay on Dynamic Timing ?

NovakTwo or anyone else:

If I preorder the kenetic, will I receive a date as to when it will be released or even when I will receive it?

Thanks,Jason.

I have been a NOVAK Fan since I started R/C Racing back in 2000... Never use any other speedcontrol in the last 9 years till up to right now when I start using Castle Mamba Max Pro ESC to replace my trusty old GTB.... I'm pretty much sold to castle at this time since my Mamba Max Pro is untouchable at my local track running againts Tekins, LRP ETC....

My question is, Is the new Novak kinetic ESC up to PAR with Castle Creation Mamba Max Pro since you guys stated you have been testing other ESC....

But I love the new ballistic Motor it's a beast on the track together with MM PRO combo.....

I'm really hoping you guys get the Novak Kinetic up to speed or better against all the other ESC out on the market right now.

Me personally if I was coming from a Mamba Max Pro, the Kinetic has to be better period than it, especially as it costs more than the Mamba Max Pro.

Yeah, the new Tekin software is definitely faster than the Mamba Pro.

I will announce the ship date for the Kinetic as soon as it has been established.

My experience with two different Mambas was a lack of consistency. Hesitating starts and sensitive BECs make for a worrisome day of racing. I know the Novak will be more consistent, so the extra $50 will be worth it.

I don't think so bud my friend have the new tekin 203 Vegas firmware.. I smoke him with my MM PRO with ballistic 17.5 combo and his running 13.5 not even close with the MM PRO... Since I switch from novak to castle mamba max pro I haven't lost a race I always TQ at least a lap ahead...

that's the good thing about castle creation mamba max pro it's cheap and is untouchable... It does not mean your ESC is better If it cost twice as much...

You need to play with RPM and timing and punch control... If you don't get this right then you will have problem with cogging... Never had any problem with my MM PRO since I got it other than winnng races...

From what I have come across, it is looking like sometime in March. The longer they wait, the farther behind they fall to Tekin.

If the trend continues.... it will blow the Tekin away..... and then grumpy Tekin oners will have to wait two months to get the next update.....but maybe that won't be too bad because Kinetic owners might not be allowed to run it until everyone else catches up anyway.

It's all good man.
