Does the LRP use a large power capacitor?

Yes u can, the GTB can run 4-6 cells any of novaks brushless motors, i dont know about the HV maxx though
Also no turn limit on brushed motors still 4-6 cells.
This is all off the side of the box from mine.

I have not raced my 5.5 yet. But if you do some math and assume the 4300 (10.5 turn) was like a 19T, then you get 10.5/19 =5.5/x where x = 10 and I think the magnet is stonger so it'll probably be like a 9T or 8T. Might not be the best way to estimate, but it is only an estimate.
assuming you are correct,, do you think any club will allow you to race stock or even 19t with limited cell use,, since you can use 4,5 or 6 cells,, still dont know the KV rating of the 5.5 but im wwwondering if 4 cells will make it run like a tuned stock motor....

i want to race my stadium truck but there is no class for mod truck ... so i was thinking maybe i could use 4 cells instead,, since i really dont want to bother with the brushes/cutting/tuning of a regular motor

It will depend on the club/track -
We have been debating the whole issue of running brushed and brushless together, and we are going to establish a brushless class starting next season (outdoor track, so summer).

Ask around, you might be surprised how many people have thought about/want to run brushless, but haven't brought it up. That is what happened with my club - once about 2 of us started talking about it, it sort of snowballed - now we have enough folks committed that we are doing a full class.

Dropping cells is a good way to try to even the playing feild. Remember to increase your pinion a few for each cell you drop. An easy way to experiment is just add two more solder tabs to your pack near one end, so you can select 4,5 or 6 cells.

Just wondering if anyone has used the Novak GTB with a Spektrum System and if any problems been encountered?!?

If I'm using a high powered servo on my kit, would I still need to add another Cap to connect to the receiver because of any BEC problems or will the one on the GTB ESC take care and do the same functions?!

I'm curious to know this since the LRP Sphere is not sold with a Cap connected to it and it seems to have problems with the Spektrum if a high powered servo is is being used in the kit!?!

Thanks for any comments and suggestions!

Any word on when the GTB will be released on its own without a motor? I'm leaning toward GTB+4300 for a practice setup.

I have been using the GTB with a Spektrum and a Airtronics high speed and torque digital servo and have encountered no issuses to date.

From what I have seen, anybody that had to add a cap to their spektrum reciever when using a GTX or GT-7 will still need to add one to their reciever with the GTB or Sphere.

KO 6V digital Fet servos seem to have to most trouble with spekums.

That's because the LRP system has a very wimpy BEC. Certainly not the case with the Novak.
