Novak Heavy-Duty 4wd Short Course System

Jul 17, 2012 1 Comment by

Novak Electronics introduces a new 4WD Short Course system: the Activ8/Vented Ballistic 550 4XSC Brushless System- 4.5T (#3185). This pure-sensor-based brushless racing system has been specifically developed for 4WD short course trucks and will handle any 4×4 SCT applications with ease.

Each cost-saving system contains the following ESC and Brushless Motor which are engineered, built and supported by Novak in Irvine, California:

  • ACTIV8 ESC: Heavy-duty ESC equipped with Novak’s X-Drive™ and Nova-Brakes™ for ultimate driving performance, on-board programming for complete customization, and a heavy-duty BEC to handle the demands of today’s servos. Cooling fan with fan guards included.
  • VENTED BALLISTIC 550: High-torque motor with twice the stator length of Novak’s Ballistic 540 produces the extreme power needed for 4×4 SC trucks, updated vented end bells for added cooling, and is hand-wound with Novak’s low-resistance red wire.

About the author

Associate Editor I can say that I’ve never done ANYTHING as long as I’ve been into RC. I got my first car when I was 11 and never looked back. Since then I’ve owned hundreds of cars and trucks and raced everything from Off-Road to Boats but I’m an Oval racer at heart. Whether I’m down siding a jump or going fast and turning left, it’s all on and my foot is to the floor! I love seeing new people discover our hobby and helping anyone I can enjoy it more. When I’m not racing or writing, I like to restore vintage RC cars and organize the Vintage Offroad Nationals. I’m also a dad and enjoy teaching my son how to drive and watching him get into this hobby on his own.
