And what's the word on the max drag brake through the NovaLink, is it above the 30% available when using the one-touch setup? Can't wait for my Kinetics, got my first team order on Monday and have two coming my way.

Here is our NovaLink page with links to a PDF of the NL operating instructions in the left column:

So has anyone used it for carpet on TC? Looking to get one as the rest of the track uses the tekin. I've been holding out for this but just want some feedback. I'll be using this in my xray t2'008

No issues yet for me. With any speedo it's probably good to double check that the settings took.

Default yes its fast

Hi all..
I would recommend the Novak Kinetic for ALL classes..Easy to programe, great back-up service and yes, they are fast.....
Heaps better than the Tekin, Seems faster than the SXX, motor temps are much cooler.
they do hold their settings...
Novak quality all the way..
Mike

First day of 2 cell speed run testing Kinetic/Novalink on a 3.5 Ballistic TSE yielded a run of 108mph, and I am sure after getting some more time playing with the NovaLink (which is really laid out well and super easy to use.) I can get a few more mph.

I made 6 runs before the wind kicked up and the smoothness of the throttle was superb and the brake adjustments on the NovaLink allowed me to really tune them so the car would decelerate quickly but more smooth and controlled then I have ever experienced before.

We always install our TransCap modules on our racing escs; if you damage the capacitor you can easily replace it yourself. No need to return the controller for service---saves time and money.

What a nice toy!.
Do you get many racers?

Novak's power cap...A BIG cap means BIG power.....They are there for a reason....
Takes a bit of thought as to were to place, but it fits..All in a T3. At least Novak gives you plenty of wire to place correctly.
I have ALL the major players in esc's..
Take a look at the pics..The worst idea are the Tekins...they move around and break the wire, no matter how much goo is used. Is why I use 2.
Look at the size of the Hobby Wing? and, hardly any wire, they have to keep the cap as close to the esc as possible..WHY? More wire would be nice..
Its not even shrink wrapped...
And the LRP is as big as the Noavak's..So what does that say?????
They are needed...
Mike

Noavak all the way, its been worth the wait

Default 1s

When will the Kinetic 1S be shipping to hobby shops? I have B/O's at A Main Hobbies along with the NovaLink.

Thanks Greg G
