No, that's what the "dynamic" part of it is, you can change where you want the boost/timing and how much to give as you progress.

Say it ain't so.....
Just for that I'll buy one just to try it out.

Please don't knock down something before trying it.

No, lol, those aren't at all designed for programming through a computer and don't even have a plug for it.

At this time, the Novak controllers using the NovaLink are the upcoming M2 Dig Dual brush controller (2 escs in one) and the Kinetic 2S.

All of the new programming features can be accessed thru the One-Touch button. So, it won't be necessary to take the NovaLink/PC to the track; or even purchase the software.

We will include guidance for adjusting the Kinetic's timing settings appropriate for each motor wind. Because we manufacture our motors here and control the accurate setting of the motor timing, we can include pointers on how to set up the complete system for maximum performance.

waiting NovaLink for updating GTB and SS firmware,

Firmware Update is working through receiver socket on ESC.

i see NovaLink had possibilities to do that.

Great to see Novak getting back into the game. As an on-road racer it's been a bit bothersome having to run other brands to keep up.

Our older escs---GTBs, XBRs, SSs, etc---are not NovaLink compatible and won't be. NovaLink compatible controllers require a new microprocessor.

So NovaLink Had inabilities to Update the firmware inside
The ROM of GTBs, XBRs, SS
That's bad news.

Hope New Version of NovaLink had abilities to do that soon.

Heck, it took some people a while to figure out how to keep their ESCs from tripping into reverse after a spin, or to not sit on the starting line for an extra .5 sec.

We won't be re-designing the old controllers to be compatible with the NovaLink; we will design new ones.....

Ok then New Controller will be following NovaLink Based.

Bad news for Controller such SLYDR, this kind controller is quite NEW.
Which Based on GTB, is SLYDR incompatible to NovaLink too ?

Why KINETIC is mention 2S ? ,while Other capable to 3S and more..
