Jsaves I want a full report on how the brushless works for you. I'm really looking hard at getting one myself.

Great job to novak on this one.
How does compare the Novak 5.5 against a good 8T brushed ?

Who was the winner in you open mod class ? Brushless or Brushed ?

Did there where also Lehner or Planteberg motor there ?

Danke

The GTB won the main. The motor screws striped out in the Lehner motor is why the GTB won. I was very inpressed with the GTB against my U-force/lehner set-up. If I didn't have my set-up already I would switch over. I see a lot of people switching over very soon at our track. All the guys said the same thang. " Damn this is one fast motor" And " What do I do with all my free time".

Novak you guys got this one right.

For those who used the 5.5 or 6.5 for mod carpet racing....I heard the GTB will last about 10-11 minutes by using 3700 or 3800.....is that true...?
That is a must have if that is true....anything more then 8 minutes of MOD motor speed/runtime is a dream for me....

What makes the BL has longer (a lot longer) run time...?

Rookie, that's about right as far as time. That's what we're getting inside on the carpet at IRP with 5.5's. We also have a pair of 6.5's sitting here to try, but since the 5.5's run so well I never bothered mounting the 6.5's in anything to try them. IRP closed the outdoor track before we had a chance to run the GTB's outside, but it should still be more than enough runtime there also.

AH.....nice to see another IRP regulars here, yeah, I just finished the MWS Nitro season, really need to decide which 190mm and 12th scale to get for the IRP and Hurricane series.........but GTB, that is a LOCKED DEAL....thanks.

P.S....can't beat that 10-11 minutes 8T speed system........may be we can do 8 minutes japanese A mian style from now on....8 minutes mod is NOT a dream anymore.

I didn't time it, but with the 5800 and some aging 3300's, in a sedan on foam tires, it felt like I was up there for an eternity practicing on each pack. My hand was starting to hurt by the end of the pack, felt like 10-15 minutes with a bunch of speed throughout. The motors are pretty clearly more efficient, the best I can tell. Presumably, the lack of drag you have with a brush/comm setup lends itself to better efficiency.

Just think what could be done with a GTB 5.5 and some of those 6400mah lipos that are out now.

It's fun watching the lights go on in other people. Now it will only be about 5 years before ROAR allows LiPos. I mean the 5800 is still shunned in mod at some tracks when it is clearly about like a 19T.

For those interested, here is a nice brushless friendly forum with lots of neat stuff going on:

My 5800 was way faster than a 19t (you've seen it go Gordon) they seem to be slower on carpet than dirt. What's even better is that the GTB 6.5 seems to run just as long as the 5800 did. I'm pretty happy with it. I wish our track was bigger

I'm not the best brushed motor tuner in the world, but I bought some 19T's from guys that think they're the best, and they didn't come close to the 5800.

Our club discussed letting brushless run with 19t, and after much heated discussion, we chose to just add a brushless class (2 actually) when we saw that a bunch of people were interested in changing to brushless. We took a poll of the club members, and with some input from others and some research, we set the standard brushless class to run only the 4300 motor. The other brushless class we added is basically "full mod" - any brushless or brushed motor, so this should be an interesting season - next year.

A couple of variables played into going with the 4300 instead of the 5800, and it sounds like we might have done good - the 5800 sounds like it might be a little too "hot"... LOL

I'll be there tonight Gordon, are you gonna' smoke me with a 5cell pack again?
The 4300 is a great motor for 19turn racing. The only place I see it being an advantage is in stadium truck racing. It has slightly more torque than the 19t motors I've seen and this advantage would be magnified by a heavier truck.
