New from Novak is the Activ8/Vented Ballistic 550 4XSC Brushless System- 4.5T (#3185). This new system is designed with the heavy duty 4×4 short course vehicles in mind. It’s sensor based with a big 550 motor to get that 4×4 moving quickly. Novak’s X-Drive and Nova-Brakes software are both included with this system, which is something Novak fans really appreciate, and their on-board programming lets you access many other fine tuning features.

What a couple of pleasant looking fellows, eh? We stopped by the Novak booth to take a look at their newly announced Impact brushless ESC. You can read the announcement here. While the Impact was billed in the announcement as a small ESC, we were kinda surprised at just how small it is. Tiny would be a more appropriate word. We also got a chance to look at their still relatively new Activ8 ESC for 1/8 scale brushless buggies and truggies. It’s not so tiny. But both have plenty of great features. Check out the pics below, then head on over to the Novak web site for more info.

Novak Electronics is introducing the smallest, most complete and feature-packed brushless ESC to date. The Impact Racing Brushless ESC with X-Drive is 1.15” x 0.95” square, 0.75 oz., and feature 1s-2s lipo and 4-6 nimh compatibility. It is a sensor-based brushless ESC. It comes prewired with Novak Super Flex 14-guage wires. The part I like “These power wires don’t just have a 14 printed on them─ they are top-quality, Novak Super-Flex wires.” It includes Novak’s All-New Super Tuner™ Interface which allows for extensive on-board tuning options via 5 different-colored LEDs. Nothing extra is needed in your toolbox. No need for special programmers or a laptop. This will be compatible with all popular 2-pole, 540-size sensored motors. More info after the jump
Looks like Novak is now shipping the Diablo Dual Battery Brushless 550 System. This setup is Novak’s answer to all those 1/10th scale trucks that use dual 2S LiPo setups like the Traxxas E-Maxx or HPI E-Savage. It’s supposed to be easy to use/setup with 3 different modes. Default gives you full driving power with 50% reverse power. Standard gives full driving and full reverse power. Finally, Limited is setup for training, first time users with limited power. We like that option a lot since we are always lending our vehicles to newbies! The first two modes also include BASH BOOST which will give you even more power when the motor reaches it’s ideal RPM. The system also comes wired with a Traxxas battery connector. Sounds like they have been reading the Big Squid RC wishlist!

Our friends from Novak just sent out a little PR that their GTB 2 ESC’s now incorporate their X-Drive technology. This new technology is a software/hardware combination that does their motor-firing. It improves on throttle, braking and operating temperatures. The GTB 2 is a good 1/10th scale brushless system. You can read our GTB 2 Review Here if you are looking for more info.
Head on over to the Novak website for more details on their X-Drive update.
If you run a dual battery 1/10th scale truck, then Novak’s new Diablo Brushless system is just the boost your rig needs. The Diablo 550 Sensored Motor provides a good fun to bash time ratio, and should also haul combined with the
witchcraft intelligent electronics inside the ESC. With all this power comes huge amp loads, but Novak’s got you covered with something called “Launch-Limit” – this limits startup power and punch so you don’t stress out your batteries. Cool stuff right? We’re just scratching the surface!

Although it doesn’t always seem like it, there is more than one electric motor and ESC MFG in the RC world. Novak has announced their newly-developed X-Drive technology for ESCs. This adds a new high efficiency brushless motor firing technology that will increase throttle feel and response, and at the same time reducing the ESC’s operating temperature. Novak engineers have developed this exclusive firmware and hardware update that permit the Havoc Pro SC to have the absolute best response times and switching speeds. Sweet!
