This is the Novak EDGE 2S Brushless ESC/Ballistic Brushless Motor System, with a 17.5 Turn Ballistic Motor and factory installed Tamiya Connector. Novak’s extremely small EDGE 2S brushless ESC has been paired with a Ballistic sensored brushless motor for a cost–saving combo. This system has it all for 2WD Short Course, Off-Road, On-Road, and Sportsman class racing at an affordable combo price. The EDGE 2S ESC features complete on-board programmability to dial in your perfect throttle setting. The Ballistic motors were developed from the ground-up by Novak, are ROAR approved, and 100% rebuildable.

Ideal for Vehciles with Limited Space:
With its compact and lightweight design, the Edge is ideal for all 1/10th and 1/12th scale applications, but it is especially suited for vehicles with little room for electronics. With a footprint 35% smaller than the GTB 3, the EDGE is sure to fit in any vehicle. However, don’t let its small size fool you. This is a feature-packed ESC with “Plug-and-Play” set-up. No soldering. Just plug it in and start racing!

Easy to Use Features: Novak’s new EDGE 2S ESC contains the latest R/C technology on the market, yet remains remarkably easy to use. Novak’s One-Touch Set-Up™ circuitry allows quick and easy set-up to the transmitter. Utilizing the One-Touch button and five LEDs, the EDGE boasts 12 adjustable parameters for complete customization; allowing the ESC to grow with you while your skills improve and your racing demands increase. The EDGE is equipped with sophisticated Thermal Overload Protection to protect the ESC from overheating. Additionally, like the rest of Novak’s top-of-the-line ESCs, the EDGE features built-in temperature monitoring circuitry to determine the ESCs operating temperature with a quick tap of the One-Touch button. Complete with built-in Voltage Cut-Off circuitry for both LiPo and LiFe batteries, the EDGE has it all! The EDGE 2S ESC also features zero motor timing advance and meets ROAR Sportsman Class guidelines for fair and consistent performance on the track.

17.5 Turn Balistic Motor: Novak's Ballistic Spec Brushless Motors are completely rebuildable, right down to the hardware. In fact, only one motor is necessary to compete in all spec class races. Simply pick your class of choice, and install the necessary color-coded, hand-wound stator. Each stator includes a factory-installed insert that easily identifies the number of motor winds. Each Ballistic Spec motor is identified by a color-coded insert affixed to the stator, located below the heavy-duty solder tabs. To complete the racing package, this next-generation spec motor series contains an easy-to-adjust timing assembly that alters the RPM range and retains previous user settings, allowing for strategic and smart spec racing. Additionally, these sleek motors are built to ROAR/IFMAR specifications, boast a removable shielded sensor harness, and contain a nickel-plated sintered Neodymium rotor for maximum motor acceleration, braking power and performance in high-temperature conditions.

System Features:

  • Affordable performance, compact and lightweight design
  • ROAR approved ESC and Motor
  • Three systems available:
    • EDGE 2S / Ballistic 10.5T (NOV3335): Provides the fastest speeds. Ideal for Mild Sportsman Modified Racing, or fast bashers!

Novak EDGE 2S Brushless ESC/Ballistic Brushless Motor System (17.5T)
You gave this a one star because of the connector? This is the world of RC and you should probably know how to solder a new connector on there.)

Novak EDGE 2S Brushless ESC/Ballistic Brushless Motor System (17.5T)
Just received mine today. The product ordered was to have the Traxxas connector, and the box received was labelled as such. But when opening the box I find a Tamiya connector. As a first time customer for Novak, this doesn't help me feel better about their quality control. I've sent a message to A Main, but since I could not have known about the wrong connector without opening the product, looks like I might be stuck dealing with Novak instead. And I don't want to have the local shop hack one on - might invalidate the warranty.)
