i would say wait for the 4.5 it will be out next month (by novak)

and get a GTB

or if mamba's new controler is useable with the new 4.5 do that

b/c the mamba is supposed to be programable in more ways that i can explain with my 14 year old self

"When it comes to brushless there is somthing to be said about, the car never changing its power output during a race. I drove better because I didn't have to think about the motor or how much power its got. the brushless never changes
25% less energy loss for the same power of a brushed motor sounds good to me. its way nicer on the batteries

stop messsing with motors and batts and drive the car!!

touring car"

Well put...

And yes, you could feasibly get the GTB as slow as you want, just limit the EPA(End Point Adjustment) on your transmitter.

I'm very impressed with mine so far, and as soon as our track is ready, I'll have comparison lap times(vs 19T chameleons) and a trap speed, along with gearing experiments to see where it needs to be...

To be honest, I don't expect my lap times to be alot better, considering the difference in fastest lap between the nitro class and the 19T class wasn't very big. It's true, the electric cars handle better, so they got through the twisties quicker(wich at our particular track is where the race is won). Only in 2 portions of the track will the additional power really make a difference, here are pics so you can see why:

Thanks, I help build, paint, rebuild, and maintain it. It doesn't look quite as good now as it did in the pics, but it's still very raceworthy, and during the seaon gets plenty of action...

And if you look real close, you can see me pass one of the local bad asses on that track in my avatar. He came in first in last year's series, with one of my race partners in 2nd, and me a close 3rd.

Was wanting to get a GTB 5.5,but after seeing that it couldn't catch up with an 8 turn,I was a little turn off. Lets see how the 4.5 will fare...
What about Novak's engine (4.5 / 5.5 / 6.5) max torque (in gf-cm) and max rpm?
I'm really interested in...
Thanks and regards,

I would say the novak 5.5 is in between a good 8T and 9T, and the 6.5 is close to a good 10T. From my experience with the different motors I would think the 4.5 will work out to a 7T replacement.

What about the 5.5 compared to a Tamiya TZ?
My question could be obvious, but sorry I'm not an expert
Thanks!
