Questions?? ESC spectrum question!

Steve,
Will the new GTB Spreadspektrum ESC work with 75mhz controllers.
I just bought one and the hobby store said it would work but the label
on the box says "only" spectrum systems?
Thanks in advance!
Max

Max,

Your hobby shop was wrong when they said that the Spread Spectrum GTB would work fine with your 75 or 27 MHz radio systems.

I would expect you to encounter glitching problems if you try to run the SS GTB without some sort of 2.4 GHz radio system.

If you're looking at the endcap side of the motor clockwise is less timing, counter-clockwise is more timing.

This changes the sensors in relation to the coils in the motor.
Sorry about this repeat question but need it cleared up. Does the above answer include all 13.5 motors including the pro motors with "The color-coded, non-removable, non-replaceable timing ring" ?

Wow, and just looking back, I bet Novak never thought they would be in the motor business 6-years ago.

Steve:

Is there a correct way to pull out the sensor plug from a gtb esc?

as i cant grab the actual plug as it is too small, the only way i can think of to pull it out is to pull on the wires?

Losi,

Well ideally we like to be able to grab the plug... but if you grab the wires and sort of wiggle the connector back and forth while gently pulling it out.

Thanks steve,

Also, is it posible to damage the gtb by having a brushed motor wired up (no sensor wire in) & turning the car on and transmitting a throtle signal (while still in brushless mode i think)?

As i thought the gtb just changed to brushed mode once the sensor wire was unpluged, but then i relized i have to do a seqeunce with the button to change it into brushed mode, oops...

They say that it's possible to damage the ESC by having it wired up incorrectly, but I haven't actually seen one be damaged from that as long as you don't leave it running like that for a long period of time.

yeah with the gtb, i had it all wired up correctly and didnt have the sensor wire pluged in,

but i just turned it all on and tryed to use it and wondered why it didnt work, lol


I think i got confused with my novak XBR esc instructions and assumed that it would go automaticly into brushed profile, like i think the xbr does. is this correct?

Steve,

In your opinion for touring car which motor setup would be better and/ or quicker on a medium to long length ashfelt track.
6.5 with a bonded rotor or a 7.5 with a sintered/ 13mm rotor?

Thanks

Hey Fatbear,

I always recommend using sintered rotors in favor of bonded rotors for most applications... that being said I think the 7.5 turn with the sintered rotor is your best bet.
