Team Novak Drift Spec Brushless System
Team Novak has long been known for providing quality ESC’s & motors. Since the days of the SLYDR brushless systems were available many wondered when we would see a replacement from Novak. Today Team Novak announced the all new “Drift Spec” brushless drifting system. This is a 13.5T brushless sensored motor & ESC, it offers some really great features. Including the ability to adjust the drive frequency, drag brake, driver response. We hope Team Novak will decide to release larger sized motors in the future. We have the full details and specifications after the jump.
Official Release from Team Novak about the new Drift Spec Brushless System
For years, drifting has been taking the world by storm. The Novak SLYDR Brushless System laid the groundwork for Novak’s drifting line, and we are pleased to bring the fans of the “slide” our newest offering for high-end drifters-the Novak Drift Spec Sensored Brushless System-13.5T (#3073). This affordable, ultra-small, sensor-based system is designed specifically for 1/10th scale drift vehicles, has a simple interface, and contains features found in higher-priced systems. The Drift Spec System is also factory-wired with battery and motor plugs for easy, “Plug and Play” installations.
