Default Novak GTB?

I am building up a Clod racer and have a spare Novak GTB and wanted to know if I could run it in the Clod using 2 17t machine wounds on 6 cell Nimh power?

I know the GTB has a NO BRUSHED MOTOR LIMIT so technically it should be o.k. right?

ThanX

I've successfully run my clod with two 10-turn P-94's on my GTB...

Granted, it was -40 out... The battery pack was freaking hot (Venom 3000mAh NiMh) but the ESC was cool to the touch

You shouldn't have any problems with the 17 turns at all... But periodically check that the ESC isn't getting too hot.

It should thermal, though, and prevent damage.

Mahalo's for the info.

I'll be given it a try as soon as I can get my hands on the motors and pinions
