NOVAK Pulse V2 Brushless System X-Drive ESC w/ Ballistic Vented 550 4WD 4.5T Motor For RC ShortCourse #3173


This is a Novak Pulse V2 Brushless ESC Combo, with an included 4.5 Turn Ballistic Vented 550 4WD SC Motor. Novak has the perfect racing combo for aspiring pro drivers — pairing the Pulse V2 Pro ESC with Novak's premiere SCT motor, the Vented 4.5T 550 Ballistic Brushless Motor. This race-proven system was designed for the extreme demands of 4X4 Short Course Racing, and has been used to power top-level racers. The Pulse V2 has redesigned power board with integrated power capacitors, and updated Super-Tuner™ firmware with enhanced braking functionality. This robust design is built for the next generation of serious racing enthusiasts to take on the toughest tracks and the heaviest loads.

The Pulse V2 includes all the features racers have come to love about the Pulse including ultra smooth X-Drive™ for ultimate performance, Super-Tuner™ interface for the fastest set-up changes with the simplest and most adjustable menu system to date, and Dynamic Timing Advance for insane speed. Also standard is a heavy-duty 5-amp BEC and ultra-duty 12-gauge power wires.

Novak's Vented Ballistic 550 motor uses the same proven stator and shape from its 540 design, but has double the length of the stator and rotor to provide racers with the largest race-legal motor for 4X4 Short Course Trucks. This massive motor means simply that your truck will have NO power issues. Clearing triples, quads, and even the entire five-pack will become a traction issue, not a power problem! The vented end bells and proven Novak quality of motor design means high performance and extreme reliability.
