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.
Tony,

You are correct, the non-warranty replacement should work the way you explain it.

Svines,

Are you running on a small or large track?

You will probably have to gear up a bit from where you are at... I like to have people start out around 4.5 and go up from there.

I will be running at Bending Corners. I tried it last night on the street and geared it at 31/78 (5.03) and that seemed to speed it up. Ran it for about 5 minutes, no body on, and the motor was still cool to the touch.

Hi Steve

Could you please explain just exactly what function the GTB min drive adjustment performs.

Is this a punch control or does it simply effect the amount of minimum drive available at the slightest pull of the trigger.

Thanks


Geoff

Looped:

Minimum drive is the % of the total drive power that is passed to the motor in the very first step of throttle outside of the deadband.

So as you move the trigger from neutral through the deadband, you will have no throttle output, but once you exit the deadband, the first power output will be the minimum drive amount

Default Loose Ring

Steve,

I got a new havoc spec system with the 17.5.

On earlier Novak motors that I own, the colored ring in the center is held in place tightly by the two endbells. On this one the ring is loose and can not only rotate but move back and forth a little. It seems this opening would let more dirt in the motor.

Have you changed the stator stack length or something? Should I be concerned about this?

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.

Mick B,

Thanks for posting those pictures up! I had pretty much forgotten about finding them from everything that's been going on this week!

Regarding the loose motor sleeve: There are always manufacturing tollerances involved when making anything... if sleeves wind up slightly short... or lamination stacks aren't as compressed as previous stacks, you can sometimes see a loose timing ring.

Although it can allow some dirt inside the small space it's not really anything I would be too terribly concerned with due to the fact the dirt would have to travel up or down the motor's length somehow before it could really get inside the motor to where the rotor is an cause some sort of problem.

If you are concerned about it you can simply remove the motor from you vehicle every so often, disassemble it, and simply brush it off.

No problem at all.

I saved those photos as soon as I saw the post. I have a copy of them printed out and always with me in the pit box!

I've found the useful to have at the track.
