Right now the only thing I care with on GTB is WHEN...

I'm quite sure we won't see traction control, launch control, or even more advanced dynamic power profile on brushless system this year. Next year? I hope so...


One day, hopefully not too far away, I wanna bring my laptop to the track, input the track layout, and setup the different power output I wanna have on different part of track. That make the RC racing more science than what we have right now (and probably cost more.. ops).

Hey Guys, Thanks for kind comments. Adrian- We had a good weekend, I'd have to give a majority of the credit to Skuba Steve Though. A little known fact is that he did virtually ALL of the testing for the event, I think he's going on like 20 strait weekends at a track.

I'll have to check about the Reverse, I'm not 100% sure myself.

Thanks

Reverse is available through a basic profile change that can be done just like our current ESCs.

Is Novak planning on releasing those hotter motors used in the Reedy as you mentioned in your above post?

I've not been officially updated on any delays or anything, so it's looking good. As for the other motors, I'm sure we will eventually, but there is a lot of testing left ahead of us I think.

Thanks

Charlie, when you say "hotter" motor, does it mean smallr T like 5T or 4.5T? or same 5.5T but different winding like 5.5x2 or 5.5x3 winding? or other mod inside the motor?

Pretty sure on Novak scale it will be 3t or 4t so if will be more comparable to a 6-7 turn brushed motor

I have two Super Sport ESCs that I was going to send in for non-warranty replacement. If I wait will I be able to exchange them for the new GTB? Obviously at a higher cost.

I have a bunch of Super Sports as well and am looking forward to both LRP's Sphere/Neo-One combo and Novak's new GTB System! Having the two go head-to-head should really prop-up the Brushless ESCs and Motors at many more tracks all over! Charlie, by chance do you have and new info for us? Throw us a bone to munch on every now and then! Many Thanks!

Default Yes, Novak can at least...

give us some more pics of it installed, so that we can drool. Some without the fan hiding it.

Great suggestion! Charlie, pics and info Please!

Wet our Appetites even further! LRP may just have lost a customer since they took soooo long in delivering (and are still no where to be seen in the States). Hope Novak doesn't make the same mistake!

Did you guys see the picture of the GTB in the latest RC Car Action? First time I think I saw what the fan installed on the top looked like.

Anyone know the height of the GTB, with fan? Looks like it might also be a pain to put in my B4...
