I think the slash means RS OR RS Pro as they are essentially the same thing.

Our Trade-Up programs are also very sweet---and, we have offered them for many years!

TeamNovak ESC Trade-In Program
TeamNovak BL Motor Trade-In Program

Novak customers can return any esc we have ever made (brush or brushless) and any BL motor and trade-up to currently manufactured products---this is our exclusive, Lifetime Legacy Program.

We could always add other companies' controllers or BL motors to our programs. Should we?

What would LRP/Novak do with ESCs and motors sent in?

In the UK, you can trade in your old cellphone and they get recycled or sent to developing countries in Africa.

As far as Novak goes, the trade-ins and repiars that turn into upgrades get resold for a big pirce knock off as refurbs. Makes for excellent budget racing solutions!

Hohoho--- Novak has ALWAYS been on the side of GROWING our hobby---and will make/produce anything we need to support it!!

WCRC has created a GREAT entry level class in the 21.5 "Super GT" cars---now just be CONSISTANT with enforcing the rules---and let the newer guys RACE!!!
It's all for FUN and TOY cars!!!

I have to say that I agree with you here. A little background on me, I use to race over 20 years ago (Yes, I am an old man lol) when I was stationed in Japan. I am just now looking to get back into the RC car hobby, although I have still been Flying RC since then, but so much has changed in the hobby with the invent of the brushless motor and using Lipo batteries instead of NiCad that was the norm back then. The cars have changed as well, though not as much as I had expected. Back in my day, I use to Race a Kyosho Lazer ZX in the 4WD stock and modified classes, all I had to do was change the motor, pinion, and battery pack and I was up and running. The same for the 2WD classes, which I ran the Ultima, and it was always a toss-up to who won to who made the least mistakes on the track. To go to a new track that you have never raced, with a new car and new electronics and try to race against a seasoned racer who has been at the track for years and try and be competitive is not going to go well for the returning racer. Granted, I have experience racing and have many wins and places under my belt, including a 2nd place tag team 500 lap endurance race at the Kyosho private track that they sponsored for the entire island. But today, I would probably not even place at any race I entered with the seasoned racers, simply because I will not have the experience of the "small things" that make the difference in a winning car. I could go into much greater detail but I think the thought I was trying to convey has been sent. It would be easy for a track to have a novice or newcomer class that allowed new or returning racers to get their feet wet and back up to speed to be competitive in an experienced racer class

I raced an old novak havoc and it was nearly as fast as my tekin rs pro I raced a hobby wing and lost .1 per lap so sorry to nix the hobby wing but what do you guys think about the orca esc some of the faster guys at the track specifically tc racers? I havent tried a lot of other speedos but I havent gotten best down the straight either there are times where someone is slightly faster but not work hundreds in eletronics just turned up the throttle expo! And with the tekin you can set the throttle profile so why hobby wing the price is cheaper but its bulky and just didnt seem to have the same punch how do the v2 tekins compare to the v1?

I race a HW Juststock I have as much punch as everyone else that use Tekin's Orion or any other. You may have to make adjustments in timing and gearing but using a$50 esc is no disadvantage so far in racing at the club level. Our club has very fast racers in it!
Did you adjust the DRRS in your HW esc I have mine set on max.

Yes friends of mine adjusted it to have max speed settings I dont know what settings those were but they set them to theirs mine just was not as fast and this doesnt make a big difference in classes like vta or gt but in tc the min weight is 1380 ans the tekin is by far one of the lightest escs im now sure how much the hobby wing weighs in comparison

I run the Hobbywing v3.1 Stock Spec and don't lose anything to the more expensive ESCs (Tekins, LRP Flows, Orcas, etc). The 3.1 Stock spec is 40g I think with the fan.

Almost nobody on the on road side at my track runs Tekin any more. Everyone has moved to something else.
