TRAXXAS®-COMPATIBLE HAVOC 3S SYSTEM

Havoc 3S ESC includes a Traxxas®-compatible battery connector and installs easily into the Traxxas® Slash™ 2WD Short Course Truck.

Novak has combined one of its popular Havoc speed controls with its top-of-the-line, ROAR-approved Ballistic Spec motor to create the perfect system for power-hungry drivers. The Havoc 3S/Ballistic Brushless Systems with Traxxas® Plug – 10.5T (#3080), 13.5T (#3081) and 17.5T (#3082) 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 Havoc 3S/Ballistic Systems include gold-plated bullet motor plugs, which eliminate tricky wiring situations and allow the system to be easily removed from the vehicle without soldering. Additionally, this system is compatible with a wide range of battery types, including 2S-3S Li-Po packs. Simply plug in your battery, and you’re set to break some track records! In fact, the Havoc 3S/Ballistic system is one of the fastest upgrades available. Its sensored design creates a significantly smoother ride than a sensorless system, plus it has a more consistent throttle response – perfect for racing. This system is an ideal fit for any 1/10-scale off-road, on-road or short-course vehicle, including Traxxas’® Slash™ Short-Course Trucks, Traxxas’® Stampede™ Monster Truck, Traxxas’® Rustler™ Stadium Truck or Traxxas’® Bandit™ Buggy.

A Traxxas®-compatible battery connector and gold-plated bullet motor plugs are factory installed on each system for a simplified, race-ready installation.

 

ONE-TOUCH™ AND GO!
The Havoc 3S has the easiest ESC/transmitter calibration available. A simple push of the One-Touch™ button activates a fast, durable and versatile speed control that is incredibly simple to operate and is ideal for 2-3S Li-Po bashing and racing applications. For example, the Havoc 3S automatically detects – through Novak’s auto-detect Li-Po software – whether a 2S or 3S Li-Po battery is connected. This feature is part of the reason that the Havoc 3S has such a remarkably speedy reputation. This flexible ESC is also compatible with conventional brushed motors for a different style of racing. For those interested in fine tuning, the Havoc 3S ESC features a simple interface with nine adjustable parameters, such as Throttle Curve and Brake Frequency. The Havoc 3S is also extremely durable with a highly water-resistant case that stands up to any type of weather. It also contains one of the strongest BECs for sport applications and includes Li-Po Cut-Off Circuitry that protects your batteries from damage.


SYSTEM COMPATIBILITY
Additionally, the Havoc 3S’s small footprint and low cost make it a perfect complement for any 1/10-scale electric vehicle.

FLAWLESSLY FAST
But the exciting features don’t end there. Each Ballistic Spec motor includes a color-coded, hand-wound stator to easily identify the number of motor winds, perfect for spec racing. In fact, the Ballistic motors are so versatile that any turn from 8.5 through 25.5 (#S6608-#S6625) can be installed to alter the motor’s speed. Drivers can go from wild to mild in a few quick steps. This motor will adapt to any driver as he or she progresses. Additionally, these motors include all the must-have features to solidify their status as superior racing machines. Each Ballistic Spec motor is ROAR approved and includes a nickel-plated sintered Neodymium rotor for maximum motor acceleration, braking power and performance in high-temperature conditions. And like all of Novak’s innovative Ballistic motors, these motors are also completely rebuildable with dozens of replaceable parts available, which will enhance your motor investment.
