    Check the timing on the motor, if you have it retarded it will be advanced in reverse and run much stronger.

    how do you time them, i read that you just spin the shell, or outer case, but i don't see how that would make any diference. i mean really the ony thing you can turn is the disc that the cap with the brushes on it screws into, which would spin the outer cap, not the shell. im using the speed gems 2 motor. any thoughts. also you said the novac compares to the 27 turn. the lower the turn, the faster it goes isn't it? wouldn't that be slower than my 17 double?

    The Novak Stock system compares to the 27t motor, the other systems don't, and yes it might be slower than your 17t D.
    Timing, on your endbell, the two screws that tighen it, there should be a mark right under them. Those are your timing markers. On your can there are four indents than hold the ring that your endbell screws to, the one that is inline with your mounting holes is center. Looking at the motor with the endbell up the mark should be just to the right of the endent in the can, maybe 1/8 of an inch.

    when you say the novac system, are you refering to the modified? because i have heard it compares to a 12 turn. and when you time it, if you turn it counter clock wise its should go faster right? i believe that is what i read, and not to turn it over 20 degrees.

    "Novak system", I was refering to the brushless stock system from Novak, it compares to a stock motor as far as RPM.
    As far as timing goes, yes you turn it counter clock wise to advance the timing, and don't go over 20 deg.

    I have a DuraTrax Evader ST with a newly installed Novak Super Sport Brushless Motor System and am having many problems. After only 1 1500mAH battery pack the ESC overheated and shut down. I came in to the troubleshooting guide which isn't much and found that I may have too low a gear ratio. I had 23T pinion and 88T spur. So i changed to a 20T pinion. I also read about receiver interference with the ESC so I moved my receiver closer to the front of the car. After several hours to allow the ESC to cool back down. I took it out with another 1500mAH battery pack. This time it was the same thing. It got really hot after about 5 mins. Also, It seems to have maybe some interference problems which I have never seen before. Sometimes It may turn to the right without actually making it turn. The red LED that should stay on in neutral will sometimes flicker. Is there anything that Im doing wrong? Somebody please help!

    some esc's get rel hot if u rock em foward to reverse repeatedly, take note i have no experiance with brushless, also your gearing sounds off, but again im no expert, surprised to hear problems with 1500 batery, its definatly not the best out there ,

    Ok smart A$$ alisar70.......its not melted it has thermal protection so it just shuts down. I just dont know why it gets hot so fast and shuts down. Please keep your mouth shut and let a pro handle this problem

    Most ESC's get hot if you are making your car go slow, the ESC has to limit the power going to the motor and that is why it gets hot, make sure your have it in a place where air will get to it.

    If It didn't come with a heat sink, you might want to add one to it.

    I contacted Novak about it the problem today and they say I need to lower my pinion gear to about 17 or 18 teeth. I guess we'll see what happens.

    Well now I just run the motor with no load on it and it still overheated. Novak wants me to send it back. Darn the bad luck!
