If you’re looking to upgrade from an old brushed type motor to a brushless system or looking for a speed upgrade for your 1/10th scale off-road and on-road RC vehicles then you should take a look at Team Novaks new brushless system the Novak Havoc Sport!
The Novak Havoc Sport offers the same features found on all other Novak motor and speed controls, the 540-sized motor is equipped with a sintered rotor for precise throttle response and resistance to high temperatures, and the Novak Havoc Sport brushless motor is sensored for low-speed driveability and consistent brakes.
The Havoc Sport Brushless/Brush ESC contains one of the strongest BECs for sport applications and includes nine adjustable parameters to fine-tune brake and throttle response. Also, its small footprint and low cost make it a perfect complement to Traxxas’ Slash 2WD Truck, HPI’s E-Firestorm, Kyosho’s LAZER ZX-5 SP and other 1/10-scale off-road and on-road vehicles. The Novak Havoc Sport Sensored Brushless System, installed in the Traxxas Slash has taken it over 40 MPH!
