the 16x7 works good also.
But, if you have the extra $$$ go for the 16x9v6

I wouldn't be suprised to see Novak come out with something new soon. They have one of the most advanced battery trays now, I can't imagine they don't have anything planned for a new charger that's a little more updated.

Why do you say the 16x9 and not the 7
From my stand point I would be getting more charger then I need.

The 16x9v6 has several features which I like better than the 16x7.

Profiles, AC/DC with enough PS for another charger

The 16x9's feel more solid also.

Default Choosing a charger

The Novak should work fine, but i'd wait to see if they got something new coming.

I've been VERY happy with my LRP Pulsar Competition and CE GFX and CE PitBull X3. All three work extremely well. If you can't afford the GFX, go for the PitBull or LRP, they've been working flawlessly for me....

For the casual racer, maybe the 30 amp disgharge. You can get the motor run in feature on the LRP. What I'm looking forward to since I like to track things, is the way you're able to cycle and test your cells.

Hmm, I wish I had as much luck with the Mako, as I'd posted several days ago, I ordered two of 'em for this weekend, & unfortunately neither panned out like I hoped. One of them looked pretty darn good on my Robi, & also felt good at first in my car, but it didn't complete its first run, unfortunately, the armature delaminated during it(car just ground to a dead stop), & the other seems to have quite a bit of top end but just seems soft off the line & out of corners(just couldn't get much punch out of it yet). I doubt that they'll all be like this(these things happen, I guess it was just my turn to have some bad luck, but at least the battery pack that I ordered with them turned out to be a good one, ). I'm sure I'll eventually figure out what these motors want, just a slightly frustrating first time out with them.

I ran my Mako yesterday... I need to figure out the gearing as it got really hot geared the same as my other monster motors.

It was plenty fast, just got way too hot...

BTW - I was running it in my 1/12th scale..

Hey guys - Hope you had fun at your races. Sorry to hear that some of you had some bad luck with the Mako motors. They probably have some getting used to.

I raced yesterday at the first Trinity Outlaw outdoor racing series running mod with a 11 and 8 single and boy was it fast and fun! My Xray was not handling as well as I like as such fast speeds but it was sure fast and my cells performed flawlessly! Most packs peaked just under 9 volts and put 3700+ mAH into them at a charge of 5 amps on my gfx. It was incredible, they peaked at just the right temperature Next race i'll try and tune my car in better so I can win the A. I took 5 in the A main. Thanks for everything from you guys here at RCtech and the Staff at Fukuyama racing.

Good luck in your next event!

John
