Default Novak GTB help!

I have a GTB esc and was runnig it yesterday and had a 10.5T Fantom motor lock up. Not sure why it locked up... could of been a bit of over gearing and some extra mud on the chassis that weigh my SC10 down. Anyway, the GTB is working but smoke came from the power capacitor when I tried to give it throttle when the 10.5T locked down. I installed a new LRP 13.5T on the SC10 this morning and the GTB is working. Should I replace the power capacitor on the GTB since it released the magic blue smoke???? The GTB appears to be working properly now... should I send it back to Novak to see if there is anything internally wrong???

Thanks for the help!!

The GTBs should not be operated without the TransCap module installed; so, definitely replace the cap as soon as you can.

You can always email [email protected] with your questions, during regular CS hours. Before emailing, take a moment to review the instructions (trouble-shooting guide) originally included with your Novak Item:

Novak Instruction Downloads

Quote:
Please make your initial email as detailed as possible. Include:

~ warranty claim?
~ speed control (brand/model)
~ motor (brand/wind)
~ rotor (old/new)
~ connectors used
~ servo (brand/model)
~ radio system (receiver/transmitter)
~ vehicle & gearing
~ battery, brand (c rating/capacity)
~ any external modules (BEC/brand, Glitch Buster)
~ other important info: water damage, corrosive chemical sprays, excess heat, etc
The more information you provide in your first email, the more quickly tech support can offer you assistance.
