if your looking for a good crawler esc keep looking, the bec burnt up! you cannot hook up the bec w/o unhooking the hot off the esc.. contrary to the directions...
the hill brake will flip the rig, which is bad wile going down steep hills.
and the reverse is glitchy, some times works sometimes not at all, sometimes jirks! or best of all is wot! for small input, very unpredictable.
it says it has hill brake, and drag brake, all i know is if you let off the gas it flips! so i guess some w[More…]

Hello, i thought i'd write a review of this esc/motor combo that i've used on a couple projects. there are a couple negatives reviews out here and i think they are way off the mark. first off i am running the timbuk2 in a wraith with an old but decent lipo (5000 mah, 60c) and an airtronics radio system. with the stock gearing you can creep along super smoothly allowing precise wheel placement in the rocks. at full throttle there is plenty of wheel speed to spin the tires on loose surfaces, or cl[More…]

Tried 2 different Novak combos, one overheated and won't work at all, the timbuk2 works fine but has no wheel speed at all, stock axial esc with 27t motor blows the upgraded Novak combo away. My advice is it forget Novak, go with castle and tekin if you want easy to use and easy to program components, wasted several hundred on Novak stuff that does not work

I purchased the novack and spent $600.+ in upgrades after the recommended upgraded novack system and It sits because I lost all the speed it used to have and is not really a crawler. Its pretty but thats all.

Good all around setup on my Wraith. Used mostly for crawling. Has a heavy brake which may not be ideal for light or ultra lighten setups but with my weighted and fully upgraded Wraith its perfect.

Not terribly impressed with the UBEC it comes with but until I see and issue I keep running it. Not linkable to a computer for programming is the only negative I have f[More…]
