4. Some of the descriptions don't fit on the screen, and disappear off the side of the interface.

On the positive side the interface looks great and connection to the novalink seems smooth and reliable now, keep up the good work Novak!
Same issues with my Netbook I use at the track -

Novak can you please take a look at the resolution issue - Thanks!!

I do see the other issues mention above - but I believe it is probably tied to the resolution piece..

I do notice it being choppy as well, screen does not scroll smoothly. The cursor keys will not scroll the screen, the window sidebar will not allow the mouse to grab-it and scroll - I have to use the sidebar top and bottom arrows to get it to scroll.

All on a Netbook w/Windows 7 32bit -

We are looking at this resolution issue.
Most of the small Notebook computers use non standard video chip sets with custom video drivers, we developed the Nova Link software in Microsoft .net and we had to do a lot of extra work on the user interface to just so it will work on the small video display.
We are working on this and we hope to have a fix in the next release.

Thanks for the update Adnan - will that be a minor update (1.4.1) or major (1.5) just curious.

Over all this version of NovaLink is a great product and the firmware has been working great too -

I am doing the upgrades and bigger things from my home desktop (btw: works great on Windows 7 64bit) and using the Netbook at the track for fine tuning when needed.

It should be a minor update, we will have several in the next few months.

We are also working on a completely automated installation program for the Nova Link to help reduce the pain of application installation on a PC.

A big huge THANK YOU to Jackie and the folks at Novak for getting my Kinetic squared away in what I can only think is record time!! Now can we work on getting the graphic interface a little smaller so it fits on my crappy laptop screen!

Thank you!

We may have to make a version that is specially designed to run on the small notebooks as they use non standard video screen format and lose some of the graphics.
Stay tuned

The Kinetic Rock's. I love it and I can't complain about the results I have been having with it. I like the adjustability over anything out there.

Thanks,
Jeremiah Ward

This looks like it will be the controller to have. The price is right. The only question that I have is why did they eliminate motor rotation selection and current limit? Everything else seems to be the same. Is their an actual physical difference that prevents these functions? Seems like both of those functions are a software thing.

Exclamation New GTB 2

Question,
Is the footprint of the new GTB 2 the same as the Havoc ESC? I got a Havoc to put in my TA-05 V2 and it won't fit! I'd like to get the GTB V2 but I want to make sure it will fit in my chassis?
Thanks in advance!
