GTB 2 SPORTSMAN TRAXXAS® - COMPATIBLE BRUSHLESS SYSTEM


PLUG & PLAY YOUR TRAXXAS® VEHICLE WITH THE GTB 2!


The GTB 2 Sportsman BL System installed in the Traxxas® Stampede™

The all new GTB 2 Sportsman Racing Brushless ESC (#1709) is now available paired with the SS Pro Brushless Motor. The GTB 2 Traxxas® Compatible Brushless Systems – 8.5 &17.5 (#3092 & #3093) are paired specifically for Traxxas® customers. These systems are affordable, "Plug & Play" combos ideal for racing in Traxxas® vehicles. The new GTB 2 Brushless combos are equipped with a high-current handling, Traxxas®-compatible battery connector for easy, race-ready installation. In other words, no soldering! To simplify installation further, the systems include gold-plated bullet motor plugs, which eliminate tricky wiring and allow for easy plugging and unplugging.

The GTB 2 Traxxas BL Systems are available in two motor turns; the 8.5T / 5000Kv System (#3092) includes the fastest of the Novak SS Pro-Series brushless motors. It is also a great choice for all-around bashing and speed runs. The 17.5T / 2200Kv System (#3093) is perfect for Zero-Timing Spec classes. They are ROAR approved for use in Spec and Sportsman classes at drivers' local tracks. The SS Pro sensored motors have a nickel-plated sintered Neodymium rotor and Thermal Overload technology; they feature a shielded-sensor cable and a rebuildable design, allowing for replacement of various motor parts like rotors and bearings. These systems are well-suited for 2WD applications, but will work in virtually all popular 2wd and 4wd Traxxas® Vehicles, including the Stampede™, Slash™, Rustler™ and Bandit™.

WHY UPGRADE TO NOVAK BRUSHLESS?

Novak has been manufacturing quality speed controls since 1982 and brushless car motors since 2004 – longer than any other manufacturer in the industry. Not only are Novak brushless systems compatible with Traxxas® applications, but they help the vehicle run at its full potential. As compared to the Traxxas® Velineon™ Brushless System, the Novak GTB 2 Sportsman Brushless Systems have many advantages including superior transistor technology for increased performance and a sensor-based design for optimal drivability. They are compact and lightweight, and have numerous on-board adjustments and diagnostic ability at an affordable price.

Upgrading to Novak's brushless performance will give drivers a reliable, serviceable system with staying power for fast applications straight out of the box. Using the included Traxxas® stock gear and batteries, the GTB 2 Brushless Traxxas® Systems can provide a 20-40% speed and power increase, and all with easy, "Plug and Play" installation. All speed controls are backed by a 120-day warranty and Novak's leading customer service. Look no further, and put a Novak brushless system in your Traxxas® today!
