well i've bought from there before but what im trying to say is i dont think i can use it online, it doesnt even have my name on it. It says "gift recipient."
I wouldnt know how to enter that to pay online with it if its even possible o_O

Ive bought stuff online with it before but it was ordered on will call and i went down to the hobby site's warehouse office and they have a POS terminal there they can charge it to (they had to type the card number in, they dont slide it. Some kind of virtual terminal i think). But i dont think will-call is available for novak?

Thanks SRP!

I have been out of town at the Snowbirds all this week and only been able to check in sporadically...I was afraid there were a bunch of questions that have gone un-attended to!

I seen on the race results that you where at the birds and seem to be doing pretty good...I do have a question if you have the time. In either your thread or the Novak thread i remember seeing 3 pictures of the back of a Novak motor showing the different settings for the timing adjustments, I can not seem to locate them again. I have recently switched to brushless and trying to get the most out of them...I am running 17.5 and any help would be great. Good luck at the Snowbirds.

Thanks for the well-wishes!

I don't have those pictures saved anywhere on this laptop or else I would re-post them here for you.

But the crux of it is that the slotted timing ring on the back of the motor can be turned one way or the other a fixed amount... When the ring is rotated counter-clockwise, the timing is advanced; when the ring is rotated clockwise the timing is reduced.

Most of the time we recommend people to leave the stock timing but it seems more often than not people advance the timing fully. When this is done heating and rpm are increased... please note that when the timing is advanced the gearing needs to be reduced!

Hi Steve ,

I curently own a GM 6t delta motor ( brushless wich is aparently = to a 3t ) and i would like to know if i can use it with my GTB , i have had it for 2 days ( the 6t GM motor ) and i would like to know if i can use it with my GTB .

Another question , if i reduce the Min.drive on my GTB , ( from 4 to 2 ) will it increase my runtime or not ?

Thanks Steve

Hi Cyclone,

I have never run a GM 6T delta but we have made our own 6T delta wind motors here to test and we have found that they pull quite a bit more current than their "equivalent" wye wind counterparts.

I wouldn't recommend trying it unless you are running 5 cells and have plenty of gearing experience.

i just think the current draw will be quite high.

If you reduce the min drive you will probably feel a pretty big difference in bottom end response... but as far as significantl increasing your run time I honestly couldn't tell you. Theoretically it should but I can't give you some quantifiable number.

Ok , i do run 5 cell and some GM people told me the proper gearing and i will be carfull , on the instruction manual of the gm motor , they say that the amp draw was of 90A @ 7.2 v and at max power , so i dont know if it will be enough runtime .

GM Pro's, these new motors ought to have extremely high performance and high efficiency - we NEED YOU to test your GM 6T delta out and report your experience on the forum.

I'll rescue this thread from page 3.

Steve - does the novak speed control program cover completely fried GTB ESCs? In other words, can I send in the one I fried this weekend, pay the $69 and get a replacement? Why it blew up, I have no idea but I am not dwelling on that. The replacement I pulled out of my sedan worked perfectly.

Default Gearing

Finally got a set of Pinions for a TC5R with GTB/13.5/Orion 3800 2s. Currently installed 78/33 which would be 4.73. I have the GTB set on the factory settings. It seems sluggish. If it is the gearing, which direction should I head with the pinions? Higher or lower? Currently I have 28 thru 34.
