CAN YOU DIG IT?
Novak’s progressive and cutting-edge engineering has found its way into the crawling segment with the first electronic dig unit: The Dig (#5450). This one-of-a-kind and easy-to-use unit allows crawlers to independently control the front, rear or both speed controls in dual-system rigs. Powering only the front or rear on a rock-crawler vehicle – commonly referred to as a “dig” – allows for tighter turns, precise maneuverability through tricky terrain, and more control on steep inclines and downhill descents, reducing the amount of reverses needed to clear obstacles.
Unlike mechanical dig systems, The Dig does not require any vehicle modifications to install or operate. Simply plug it into any three-channel surface receiver, and you’re ready to dig! And without any moving parts, the electronic Dig is exceptionally durable and can withstand all rocky landscapes.
One of the advantages of using a Novak brushless crawler system is the adjustable brakes, which can be adjusted from a minimum value to full lock brake. Thus, The Dig provides users with an adjustable brake bias between the front and rear. This feature can not be replicated with a single brushed speed control controlling two motors. The Dig also features two external indicator LEDs that can be mounted on the outside of a vehicle's body to identify which dig is engaged before making a move.
Alternatively, The Dig is compatible with crawler rigs with independently controlled steering for effortless navigation.
The versatile Dig is ideal to use with any dual combination of Novak crawling systems: Rooster Crawler Edition ESC/Forty-Five Brushed Motor Combo (#1843), Rooster Crawler Edition ESC/Fifty-Five Brushed Motor Combo (#1842), Goat 2S Crawler Brushless System (#3019) and Goat 3S Crawler Brushless/Brush ESC (#3214) combined with a crawler motor.
