No, that is a esc for brushed motors. You will need brushless speedo like a Novak GTB or an LRP Sphere to run a brushless motor.

1. Can the GTB Spread Spektrum be used with non-Spektrum receivers? How about Futaba's PCM receiver?
Will there be any degradation in response rate?

2. Is there a way to disable the lipo cut-off?

Cheers.

The GTB Spread Spectrum should be used ONLY with DSM 2.4 GHz radio systems. No FM, no AM, no PCM.

The lipo cut off can be toggled between on and off

Tire Chunker,

You're correct, we only shim the pinion side. We never shim the opposite end.

Default 10.5 Shims

Steve,

For the BL motors do you only shim the pinion side to take up play? Do you need any shims at the other end?

Hey Reto!

I dunno what to say... I guess we will have to do some major tuning work on our 55 crawler motor to get it up to speed!

Everything is going pretty well...been very busy with work, school, racing, and life in general!

How are things over there...? Staying busy for sure I bet!

An unfair question, but I'll ask anyway...

We may be getting a carpet track locally, and they are talking about starting some 4-cell 13.5 oval classes... That sounds good, but I would want to get the 4-cell ESC for it's light weight, etc... HOWEVER -- I mostly run 6-cell (sedan, offroad truck/buggy, etc.)...

If I buy the 4-cell GTB could I get away with using it for 13.5 or 10.5 with 6-cells or is it strictly 4-cells only? (I figure as cool as a GTB stays for 13.5 and 10.5, it just might work?)....

I had to ask...

Tfrahm,

We don't recommend running the 4 cell GTB with 6 cells in any application... Sorry!

No problem -- I just had to ask... I also need to look at 12th scale onroad, where room under the body is a problem -- I assume the switch to a flat aluminum "heatsink" like the 4-cell GTB, etc. is OK for the standard GTB...? (is the flat plate available separately?)

I also assume that changing the heatsink voids the warranty...? Any special tips and/or an official "How-To"?

Sorry about the delay in answering...was out of town for the holiday!

Switching to a flat aluminum heatsink for the standard GTB would be ok for lower load applications such as 1/12 because you don't need as much heat disipation.

No special tips except to be careful of the pad and the spacers underneath the heatsink...try not to damage them.
