I run a GTB in a 12th scale with single cell and a receiver pack with no problem. I have herd of people being able to run with out the receiver pack with no problem but I decided not to chance it.
Don't use Tekin so can't help you on those.

I RUN A TEKIN RS IN 10.5 AND 7.5 1S LIPO AND HAVE NO PROBLEM... RIGHT NOW TEKIN IS THE BEST SPEEDO OUT THERE NOT TO MENTION THAT EVERY MONTH OR SO THEY COME OUT WITH NEW SOFTWARE SO YOU CAN UPDATE YOUR SPEEDO AND BASICALLY MAKING IT THE NEWEST MODEL EVERY MONTH EVERY OTHER SPEEDO IT WOULD COST YOU 150.00 EVERY TIME YOU WANT TO UPDATE TO THERE NEWEST MODEL BUT TEKIN MAKES IT FREE...

TEKIN IS THE WAY TO GO END OF DISCUSSION CANCEL CHRISTMAS KITCHENS CLOSED THERE IS NO DISPUTING IT...

THESE ARE MY OPINIONS

well i never liked novak but just bought another one hopeing for better luck than last, i dont know if there is a differnce running them in off road, and runnin them in pancar, but i do hear alot of good things about them (novak spread spec), so thought i would give it a try, in my opinion they are all about the same, otherwise there would be restrictions on rules, like j-dub said, they all work fine, but you have to do your part...lol

I have both and really don't see a difference with 1s except that with the Tekin you have to run a receiver pack,also you have to buy the hot wire for the Tekin so for the money I think the Novak is it.

Well the good news is the Novak Havoc 1s is out with a built in voltage booster just for 1 cell racing. $99 I think. heck thats half the price of Tekin isn't it?

They all work fine. The biggest thing is finding the correct gearing for your motor, and speedo.
My thoughts exactly.

On the other side, i ran my tekin rs yesterday in 1cell/13.5 and it worked awesome.

The LRP 07 will work but you will have to use either a booster or rx pack. Make sure you only turn the rx or booster switch on though. DO NOT turn on the speedo switch too or you will see smoke.

Steve Weiss from Novak told me in a recent e-mail that the new ESCs from them (being debuted at the Chicago Hobby Show) will be excellent. Programable and easy to change settings. I have run XBR, GTB, and Havoc on one cell lipo with no receiver pack and never had a problem. This would be in Legends runing 13.5 brushless and on short high banked carpet oval. You never let up unless there is a wreck so that works the ESC hard but no issues.

Lots of people like the Tekins and I haven't run them for several years so I can't say. I hear the ability to advance timing is great on an on road track.

Any problem running a 4 cell GTB with 1S LiPo?

Also, if you run a 6-cell with LiPo cutoff, will it know the correct cutoff for 1-cell or is it programmed for 2S?

no probs with 4cell gtb, me and my dad have been running them for weeks without a hitch. As for the 6cell version, you just have to disable the lipo cutoff, only has a setting for cutoff for a 2s lipo

Thanks :thumbsup:

That will save me some bucks, since those 4 cell GTB's have just been collecting dust. Do you use receiver packs?

Cool. I'll give it a try. Also got a data sentry that I've never put in. I think I'll put it in and will post my findings after a few runs.
