hey steve,
i have an old and well used gt7 that is missing the factory schottky diode, i live pretty far away from any hobby stores that stock novak, so until i can order one in can i get away with using 1n5822 diodes in parallel probably 4 in parralel?
also the capacitor draged along the track and is looking worse for wear could i switch it for 2 new 16v 4700uf low esr capacitors in parallel?
cheers, im kinda in the middle of no where hobby shop wise lol.

Josh,

Your best bet is to always buy genuine novak replacement parts... in your case I'd recommend the trans-cap power module and the racing schottky diode module.

You can try ordering via our website through shopatron....they will get the stuff shipped directly to your door...no worrying about having to go to a hobby shop

OK!

I really like Novak's products. This is not a flame...BUT I was remounting my electronics and the white sensor wire broke off at the connector. To say the least I am pi$$ed!!! Novak makes a great ESC that has modular on/off/program harness, fan connection, and receiver harness. BUT you guys don't have a removable senor harness on your motors?!? All other brands have them. Now...No track for me this weekend. I can't just go buy a new sensor harness. I take pride in how my car is laid out and you guys don't make it easy but I like your products so I deal with the harness. Please, please, please put a removable senor harness on your motors. I have invested over $370 dollars on my ESC, motor and rotor. You guys can invest a little more cash in putting a senor harness connection on the end bell.

Now I guess my only option is to send this in...what a waste of time and $

Note the dangling white wire...sorry for the crappy pic.

Hey Gordie,

I'm really sorry to hear that you've had trouble with your motor harness and it's preventing you from running this weekend.

Having a replaceable motor harness on our motors has been a topic of discussion for a while around here... I will pass along your post to the powers that be.

Thanks for listening!

Now that I think of it...If I sell my sintered rotor ($25...maybe) and see if my LHS has a SS13.5 in stock ($78)...overall it would be the same as sending it in and waiting (time is money).

Anyways...Novak is tops in the BL market right now. Don't let the competition gain market share because of the convenience if a $10 harness

You can take the socket out and solder the wire back on, have third hand tool ready too.

I agree about the removable harness, I love their removable on/off, receiver and fan wire so I can shorten them all...

REALLY?!? I am used to replacing pins on DB9 and other types of computer cables. How do I get it out?
