I think racing will just evolve with brushless class becoming more common, however I think brushed racing will not die out yet because there is a certain artistry involved in brushed racing.

This is the same reason why manual shift cars are still around despite the advant of auto cars.

the speedo "May" be compatible with the novak motors as well. After talking to the AE guys they weren't 100% sure, but said there was a good possibility it would work. And yes, it works with brushed and brushless motors. How slick is that!

well there will be a brushless motor exhibition class at the Reedy Asia race in Thailand this december. Looks like we'll get to see it running.

The following info was posted by Michael Gaul on the RCCA forums:

Quote:
- the KV rating of the LRP/Reedy brushless system is 6.500rpm/volts. With this the performance is comparable to a 9-10 turns modified brushed motor
- the size of the LRP Sphere Brushless + Brushed speedo is inbetween the Quantum Competition 2 and the V7.1, so it is very small and no big heatsinks are required
- the LRP Sphere actually includes all the major settings of LRP's Quantum Competition 2 speed control, with different programs for punch control, initial brake and automatic brake, both for brushed and brushless use
- the motorlimit for brushed is: over 7 turns !
- the motorlimit for brushless is: over 5,5 turns (brushless motors is always half turns)
- the LRP Sphere also incudes a Sportsman mode with a limited rpm to 24.000, which is the same rpm as in the Novak sportsman mode. This way both speedos can be run together in a brushless sportsman class
- the LRP Sphere also has different programs for forward/brake and forward/reverse in both brushless and brushed

Default I was just checking with Novak...

on the GTX thread asking them about brushless updates. I was suprized to read this! The novak system has treated me well. It did take Novak some R&D time to produce one. I can't imagine how AE did this in a combined brushed and brushless speedo. WOW! Small size and I don't see a power cap yet! Brushless is coming into it's time.

i can tell you after running a 5800 in an xxx4 the past year+, my favorite feature is the "automatic brake". being able to dial in a bit of drag brake without fubar'ing the neutral point on the throttle is a welcome addition.

regarding this comment: "Will the Reedy motor work with Novak ESC's as well???" it looks to me like this is a sensored controller that has the same plug connection as the novak (part of the forthcomeing roar rules that require a specific sensor harness/plug). i'm wondering if the harness is hardwired on the motor(s) side.

I'm crossing my fingers hoping that the Reedy motor will work with the Novak ESC..

I saw these things at the iHobby Expo in Chicago yesterday. Sound like the controller and motor will be sold separely, not at a system like Novak. It will likely be compatable with the Novak, as I assume the Reedy/LRP products will be built to ROAR brushless specs (which are based on the Novak system). I believe ROAR wants all controllers and motors used in the class to be compatible. With a retail of $329, I'm sure the controller alone will sell for $200+ street price, but it does have more features that the Novak. I believe I was told New Years as an estimated release date. Looks like some cool new toys for the brushless class!

If I had 1 controller that could run both brushed and brushless I could get rid on the velcro in my car... I switch back and forth and got tired of peeling double sided tape...
