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.Are there any 2s esc's that will work on a 1s lipo. need a little info on what to buy, to get my PanCar running. going to be using a 17.5 motor.
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.
We have to look no farther, thanks for your help. RMF is good as new for son and myself..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.
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.We have to look no farther, thanks for your help.

We replaced our SmartBoost with the tiny (10mm X 30mm) Novak 1S LiPo Booster Module.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.
Not the same. Look at the specs. The Toro says 1 amp BEC, the XERUN says a 2 amp BEC.http://www.ckhobby.com/shop/?controller=product&path=17_107&product_id=510
Also found the same ESC here in the states under a different brand name.If you click on the manual PDF it does also come with the heatsink/fan etc for running 2s..:thumbsup:
