So youre saying that when youre not holding down the set button all leds are on? If you can steer and accelerate then youre not in the programming mode. When you first hold down the set button you have to do the throttle, brake and neutral thing then go into the actuall programming and selecting what profile. Correct me if Im wrong.

I have done the one touch programming (i.e. hold down set button and then set up speedo for throttle neutral and brake). I'm confident i've done it correctly as it's the same method as my GTX and other Novak's I've had to set-up.

It's when I switch on the unit, ready to use the car, that the LED's I explained occur:

Neutral

When in neutral, the blue, amber & red LED's are solid on.

Throttle

When I apply throttle the motor spins, the red LED goes off and the blue & amber stay on. Full throttle shows solid green instead of red but the blue + amber still stays on?

Brake

As soon as I apply brake (from neutral) the red & blue disappear (amber stays on) and on full brake I get blue and amber solid and the green LED flashes.

Just got email reply from Charlie @ Novak - I sent him just what I posted on here:

Hello,

All of that is exactly what is supposed to happen.

You've done an excellent job on your description.

Totally normal.

Well, they're definitely working on a motor that's even more detuned than the 4300, presumably to make it a little more reasonable as a replacement in stock racing. They said it'll be several months still, but it's a common request, and one they're taking seriously and actively developing.

Cool, that will be pretty great for club racing I imagine. Interesting that the dropped 2 turns for the detuned motor. I'm sure they know what they're doing, but the 4300 (10.5) seemed pretty close. Hey Novak, if you need any testers, you know where to find me! :-D

At some point, it seems like the 5800 and 4300 are going to need to update their names. Here's my updated list of motors (present and future) in this class:

Novak Brushless
3.5R (3.5 turns) [rumored, not yet available]
4.5R (4.5 turns)
5.5R (5.5 turns)
6.5R (6.5 turns)
7.5R (7.5 turns)
5800 (8.5 turns)
4300 (10.5 turns)
12.5R (12.5 turns) [rumored, not yet available]
14.5R (14.5 turns) [rumored, not yet available]

Reedy Brushless
5-Star (4.5 turns?) [rumored, not yet available]
4-Star (5.5 turns)
3-Star (6.5 turns)
2-Star (7.5 turns)
1-Star (8.5 turns)

I seen the 5 star by a team driver( P??) and its fast! Our ROAR region director tested both the 12.5 and the 14.5 and they are both pretty competative in stock class, I may test one of them at our next club race(maybe).

Hey Guys,

I'm looking at getting a brushless system and I'm just wondering if there is any benefit to cooling the motor using a Much More Motor Thermocooler?

Cheers
Ben

Supposedly the MuchMore 30MM fan will help keep the ESC cooler than the stock Novak fan, and it's got the same plug on it. I imagine anything to keep the motor cooler couldn't hurt, but I don't know for sure. Gearing it properly is the first step, but if you're trying to squeeze more out of it than it's willing to offer, give it a try, it might help.

it should have a FDR between 9.75 to 10.25 , I run a 10.17 and the car comes of the track around 141 degrees. Are you running on carpet or asphalt?
