I heard that Jon Orr won 1/12 mod using the LRP system. I don't believe anyone made the A in mod TC using either system.

Novak will have our race report from the Nats posted in a day or so. We give a quick rundown of "how we did".

We put a Novak BL powered car 11th in mod 12th and TC. Actually tied points with Orr for 10 on the TC grid, but lost out on a Tie Breaker. It's a long story......

Orr ran the LRP/Reedy in TC and 1/12th. And yes, he did win 1/12th.

We are not done testing, and still do not have a projected time frame or release, (I know someone'll ask). The motors we ran were basically hotter 5800s with a different ESC.

Thanks
Charlie

Sweet!!!! Keep up the awsome work.

Is the new system going to run brushed and brushless?

Default adjustability

anyone know if the sphere will allow you to detune the motor to perform like more than one motor? ie youd buy the sphere and set it to behave like a stock motor, and then move it up to a 19t performace after LOTS of practice, and then open it all the way up when you graduate to mod? Our track allows brushless, but I cant justify the expense if I have to buy more than one motor. If not the LRP, are there BL speedos capable of this?

I will make an addendum to the above post. On Associated's website, it says the Sphere can limit the BL motor's rpm to 24,000. Would this mean the motor would then produce similar speed to a Brush stock motor, and then the mode could be switched to produce speed similar to a Brush modified motor?

Will the 5800 ESC work with the Reedy Neo motor ? I thought I heard that it would !

the standard SS will probably will go thermo-off, because of too powerful motor.

SS ESC handles up to 225w, while neo/vector should have much more power.

Yeah it could but the SS would probably go into thermal shutdown.

Just a bump for great service from LRP / Associated

I sent in a Sphere TC that had no throttle response and could not be "setup" but the "mode" adjustments worked fine so both buttons worked and the ESC was generally aware.

They replaced the drag brake diodes and rx wire and shipped it back completely free and I have had it well over a year out of their warranty period.
