Get the fast one and don't squeeze the throttle so hard. Then, once you get bored with it, you can speed up without buying new equipment...Never Too Fast!

Never too fast? Really? Isn't why Indy drivers can't compete in F! and F! eats indy cars for breakfast. They just dont have the skills. Not all things are equal. Seen too many fast mods and nitros get lapped by "slower cars".

Hope there will be more versions Novak brushless coming out...From the looks of things can we get a 0.5R motor ?? Just kidding...
I have an aveox 1.5 turn!!! it is different though because it is 4-pole, wye wound and has a larger diameter rotor, but the power is a lot of fun. I also have a Plettenberg Shadow that will keep up with 7 turn motors, it is a 2 turn, delta wound, 4 pole.

LMAO! Exactly and this is not your TECH TALK where you can delete anyone disobey the so called new World order. In my opinion, brushless will kill Trinity sooner or later.

So don't hit the throttle so hard...genius. If you don't give it full throttle, it goes slower...duh! Or, if you can't control yourself, try limiting the EPA. Brushless is so efficient, you could run the 5.5 all day long at half throttle and be alot more efficient than a brushed motor. Indy guys and F-1 guys go to the same school, and who cares about F-1, this is RC racing... I don't know anyone whose gone to RC racing school.

I do run the U-force 75 and it is just as smooth as anything else so long as you dont try to go 1mph from a dead stop. If you just fllor it from a dead stop, it just goes. It is especially smooth with 4 pole motors. I have not driven the newest Novak (GTB) it may be pretty good. I use my U-force in all kinds of car and trucks, so the Novak was not a good option for me. Tekin is supposed to be comming out with a controller too. Should be a good one.

ss4300 = in between 27t and 19t

ss5800 = 12 or 13 turn

gtb 6.5 = 9-10t

gtb 5.5 = 8-9t

ss5800 is no where near a 8 turn mod!

A well tuned 12T can pump out 240+W, I don't think ss5800 has that much power.
