Default GTB+4.5R in TA05

Kind tied fit, but it's ok. The only problem is you have to mount caps high as there is no space left...

Can anyone inform me of how the status LED should be at the neutral position for the GTB?
In my case the status led at the neutral position with transmitter on, is solid on with a RED, BLUE & AMBER indication.
I would like to know whether this is right or not.

It will usually just show red (when the transmitter is on) but if you have some drag brake set the it will show amber, red and blue. So yes it is normal.

I'm really curious which one is faster.

Also, are those motors interchangable?

I got my Novak 4.5 system this Saturday…
The other guys at my club use the LRP Star4 and we compared them on the track, side by side. The Novak was actually a little faster ;o)
The gear ratio was 7.9 on both our cars (Xray with 87/19, our track is really big).
I think that the Star4 can have a bigger pinion than the Novak though…
We will make more testing when the weather gets better, now it’s wet and cold (46F, about 8C), but we don’t have any problems with thermal…

The LRP 4-Star is a 5.5 Turn Brushless and Novak's 4.5 is obviously faster because it is a 4.5 Turn Brushless. LRP will soon have a 4.5 Turn Brushless (5-Star Motor). My experience with both gives Novak the edge with regards to reliability.... but to LRP's defense... the Sphere ESC can be very smooth.

That's good to know Filip, our track is a similar size to yours I think (275m) and I have just bought a GTB + 4.5r motor so was wondering what gearing to use.

I run a 415MSX so think I'll go for 19/75 and see how it goes.....looking forward to seeing how quick the Novak is as I usually run 7 & 8 turn checkpoint motors which are rapid......hope I won't be disappointed

Attached is a pic of the track: (you can see my real size family car at top left of picture)

Thanks,

Dan

Good looking track. Don't get that in Southern California.

Holy crap!

That track is huge... I wish we had something like that here!! I like the grass run-off too. All of our tracks here use wooden boards as dividers and crashes usually result in annoying DNF's.. whether it we something broken or rather more often, something BENT(even more annoying!! - requires disassembly to find out!!)

track looks great... HUGe though. Must be hard tracking the car that's going so fast...

Cheers guys

Check out www.sdrcc.co.uk we have just spent 2 weeks and thousands uprading the track to look good as new, it was originally built in the 1970's so we're just bringing it up to date!

We are holding the Scottish GP, one of the biggest comps in Europe on June 3rd/4th - we have Andy Moore, Dave Spashett and loads more coming to race. Believe it or not these guys get 16 second laps around the huge circuit ....it's such a good place to run modified/brushless....along the straight they absolutely scream and if your car is not perfectly setup or if it is tweaked then you are right it's difficult to keep it straight, or brake at the end of the straight! Especially with 9 other people motoring round!

You are all welcome if you fancy a trip over here for the start of June, or indeed at any other time to race with us.

Just thought I would post my results for my first time out with my 4.5 GTB. ITS FAST! They had radar at the track today and down the straight, about 130 ft, I was running 46 mph. If you are wondering that was in a T2 geared 118/21 with 2 month old 3800 batteries. I was running 43 with some older 3700 packs. The motor was temping 141 degrees all day.

Can anyone give me any feedback on cutting the blue sensor wir eon their GTB unit?

I've read about guys doing so, at the Novak race and was wondering if there's any difference in operation?

Has anyone damaged their motors in this way?

Is there any difference in ESC operating temp? or motor speed?
