Novak believes that our customized USVTA System at 129.99 is affordable, and a very high quality offering for this series. Far better design and workmanship standards than we have seen in imports.

Additional comments about Novak's USVTA products or program should be posted here:

I can address any questions later today.

Default Want one!!

Well,

I haven't had a chance to contact my local hobby shop but want to run this in our stock CORR truck class indoors.

Anybody know where to get these. I have checked numerous websites and no one has the 17.5 club spec control combo. Are they getting hard to find due to all of the series announcing they are going to run them???? I know that the Open Wheel National is going to run them in Dirt Oval Late Model. This will be the first true stock Dirt oval class in years....Good on Custom Works and Speed Passion for making this happen.

Default use of the fan

Is the fan required for the club spec esc when running a 21.5 direct drive class? (F1 on carpet)

Thanks in advance

It will work without the FAN, however, you are risking the chance of blowing up the ESC due to the heat on the ESC without the fan to cooling it off.

I have mine installed WITHOUT the fan on my F103R as well (I know, the problem is the fan won't fit underneath the upper deck..)...I would recommand you to check ESC temp like every 2-3 minutes. If they are within the safe temp...leave it off. However, the other way to do it is...use double side tape to tape the fan in STAND UP position, behind the ESC, the side of the ESC or whereever, that you have a CHANCE to cool off the ESC and still be able to fit the fan underneath the upper deck....I did that on my F1, but I just didn't have my chance to RUN it.....

Solara, thanks for the information.

Also, what temp is "safe" for the ESC?

We are seeing temps of 130F+ most of the time...It would be impossible to be below 95f because our track temps are 100+ but have been running strong so far...

Solara,

Any way you guys can put up a software update so we can use the LCD program box to make brake parameter changes on the Cirtix?

Thanks
