I agree with you 100%

Why race the speedos at Nationals? You know what I mean. I am not trying to bash Novak......like I said before I own quite a few of their products. I know that R&D is done elsewhere and most, if not all, of the bugs are already eliminated. So when Novak introduce these top-of-the line speedos at sanctioned events, before you sell them to the public, you call that product testing? Why not just build you own testing facility to test your speedos? As far as I understood the GTX dominated a few events before it was released.....what, the old ones weren't good enough? Look, I can't drive worth a lick compared to your sponsered drivers, but at least give the local racer a bit more of a playing field when they are trying to attain a big win. Heck, I know that the major automotive companies won't put an untested race car on the track for a race without first working out all the problems at their own facility. You can either PM or e-mail me to discuss this further. Like one said, this isn't a bashing thread and I don't want it that way. But in my eyes, this is cheating and I hope you can convince me otherwise.

Yes I understand that.

But it is rediculous to say that "it is ok for the sponsored drivers to use equipment not available to the public because the sponsored driver would win anyway. "

By that logic, why dont we just let the big sponsored drivers run modified motors in stock class? Afterall, the sponsored driver would win anyway right?

Look, I don't care if Novak or any other company gives its sponsored drivers equipment not yet available to the public. Novak and any other company has the right to do with it's products as it pleases.

I do have a problem however with ROAR and other organizations that allow racers to compete with equipment that is not available to the general public.

Someone previously said that the top sponored drivers are "in a league of their own." Yes I agree that is true. However, since those drivers are in a league of their own, why the hell are they allowed to compete in a league where the rest of us commn folk compete? Those sponsored drivers should be limited to competing in "invitation only" type races if they insist that they're only using "prototype" products to test them out before mass distribution. If they want to compete with the rest of us regular hobbiests, they should be only allowed to race with equipment that is available to us hobbiests.

I scoped the GTX last week for XRC. It's really an improvement over the GT7, much smaller and with all the performance. Like Charlie said, the specs are not any worse than any other ESC out there, it is just ratings on the internal components. I wrote a column on how power supplies work and went over the same stuff... no R/C company is going to design their own diode or transistor, they are just using commercially available components and printing their own boards. That kind of research is much more science-driven.

My only concern with the GTX is the lights and one-touch button on the side of the case instead of the top. To me that's a design no-no. But it doesn't diminish the ESC's effectiveness one bit.

And please, please, drop this inane debate about sponsored drivers using pre-production ESCs and such.

Are they still ranting on about works drivers testing products for us.

What do you think is the reason Associated employ people like Barry Baker for, and Losi employ people like Kinwald.

We ought to be thankful.

Fortunately Novak are the same. I remember the days Tyree Phillips was with Novak. He was a racer. He was so knowlwdgeable and so helpful. Now Novak have Charlie and Steve. Both really know what they are talking about and are always here to help us.

Let's thank them instead of complaining.

I wonder why more and more of the World's top drivers are changing to Novak. Must be something in it !

Hi Guys,

The GTX are due in this Friday, those that have pre-ordered (thank you) yours will be shipped out the same day. We do still have a few more left for pre-order, so if you're on the market for a new speedo, this is one that's worth serious consideration
