Hi Guys, I've gotten a lot of e-mails asking about whether the new Novak GTB system fits in a 12th scale, and if so..... how?
We actually started testing the Novak brushless systems a couple of seasons ago, and they have always been really fast and very efficient. Now with Novak offering a 13.5 stock motor equivalent, the interest in fitting one in a 12th scale has really grown.
So here are couple of pictures of the new Novak 4-cell brushless speed control and 13.5 motor installed in one of our Rev 4.5's.
The installation was pretty easy. Here is a list of the small things I did to make for a "clean install"
That's about it. Not really too difficult considering that once you get it in there, it's basically maintenance free!
I hear from my friends on the West coast that you can really gear these systems tall, so I suggest you start your testing with a smaller spur gear.
Feel free to e-mail us anytime if you need set-up help, and here is a direct link to Novak for more information on the GTB systems.
