As I responded to your other question, our GTB2s (including original GTBs, and 4-cell), Havocs---1S, 2S, 3S, Pro---our new, tiny Edge 2S. These all operate on 1S.

Just about any 2s esc will work with 1s if you add either a smart boost or a receiver battery. Novak has all the info you need to set one up. I use a Kinetic 2s for my dirt oval car in the summer and switch it to run with 1s in a pan car for oval during the winter. Very simple thing to set up!!

I'm running a Novak GTB and a Novak XXL 75MHz receiver on 1S LiPo in a legend with no booster. The XXL is speced to work down to 3V so it works fine on the 1S LiPo. I have an MRT transponder and that also works fine on the unboosted voltage (never missed a lap). The GTB I used is an early one with no LiPo cutoff so I don't have to worry about a LiPo cutoff accidentally getting turned on.

It uses about 1100 mAHr in a 5 minute race and a few practice laps so I am not worrying about the cutoff with a 5000 mAHr 1S LiPo.

All of our products, for over 33 years (!), servos, receivers, speed controls, have always been designed to operate on low voltage---4 NiMH or 1S. When Bob first started designing for R/C cars, 12th scale racing on 4 cell was really popular. So it was crucial that the electronics worked in those applications.

Anyone looking for excellent "used" GTBs, need look no further than our store; we have factory RMF/new warranty GTB2s as well as our original GTB-4 cells (for cheap--49.99) available.

We have to look no farther, thanks for your help. RMF is good as new for son and myself..

If you choose to run without a booster (as I am in my Legend) it is good to use a fast servo (fast on the normal voltage) so it is still fast enough on the unboosted voltage. I'm using a fast 1/12th scale servo in the legend (Airtronics 94145Z 0.09 sec on 4.8V) so it is fine on the 1S LiPo.

Those of us running on road really like fast servos and running them on low voltages just doesn't cut it. Using the smart boost or a receiver pack with any 1s rated ESC is a must or the Hobbywing 1s which has the booster built in.

We replaced our SmartBoost with the tiny (10mm X 30mm) Novak 1S LiPo Booster Module.
