Pure Sensor-Based Design
Sensor based motor technology has been the mainstay of all competitive racers and teams. The speed control constantly knows exactly where the motor’s rotor is, and can deliver extremely smooth and controlled response. The motor does exactly what you tell it, exactly when you tell it. You cannot be more connected to your throttle then you are with Novak 100% pure, sensor-based motor firing.

8th scale tracks often get rough, rutted, rocky, and dusty. Novak’s HD8 motor features a completely enclosed design, keeping the elements out of the motor and keeping your motor running consistently pack after pack.
