The Bob Novak Interview – RCCA Exclusive [Full Video]

Oct 17, 2012 2 Comments by



As you might have seen in the November 2012 issue of RC Car Action, we paid homage to the RC Icons of the industry. I had the honor to do the piece on Bob Novak of Novak Electronics. Special thanks to Bob Novak for letting me spend the time for this sit down interview with him. Much of what he has contributed to the hobby has steered me towards the RC path I am on today. Some of my first RC products in 1988 were Novak ESC’s in my Associated 10L Fiberglass pan-car. My trusty Novak T4 ESC led me to many wins on the track and never let me down then, and my latest Novak products continue to do the same today. – Joel Navarro

    My first esc was a Novak M5. I remember getting it set up, pulling the trigger, and watching the tires turn into pancakes. What a rush.
