Default Novak Pulse V2 vs Tekin RS Gen2

I'm currently running 1/8 nitro buggy, just purchased a B5M. I am considering one of the systems listed above. I have searched but have not found any reviews of the Novak system. People seem to favor Tekin locally. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Any feedback is appreciated.

Tekin without a doubt. Brilliant ESC, very tuneable, reliable and above all Tekin customer service is 2nd to none. Good Luck.

8.5 is right on the edge of what the tekin should be doing (according to them) looking into the rsx with that motor might not be a bad idea. Novak is a good company, and make a good product. Their ballistic line of motors are excellent, but their escs do tend to be a bit tempremental, with a higher than average puff rate.

Another alternative, and the way I would go... For the same price.

You can pick up an orion r10 and a nice used motor for roughly 35-50 dollars used, and have an esc that can do anything you could ever ask.

Another alternative would be to pick up a hobbywing v3.1, and since it's cheaper you could get the programing card as well, and a used motor.

Honestly I'm thinking about getting the tekin with 10.5, but wanted to compare apples to apples since the novak comes pre soldered with the 7.5. Another question I had was, will 10.5 be fast enough, considering coming from nitro.

It should be fast enough. (I've only ever run 17.5 stock). Just gear it and have the timing set right, and you should have a blast.

I would go with the 8.5 you can always gear it to be slower... But you can't gear the 10.5 to be faster than it can be.

The tekin is much better for soldering. It has posts, where the Novak has it soldered onto the board. Looks pretty clean, but good luck getting off those Novak solder joints.
