Now with Novak X-Drive™ for enhanced throttle response, ultra-smooth power delivery, higher top speeds, and cooler operating temperatures. The Havoc Pro SC/Ballistic 550 Short Course Systems are the first systems specifically designed to meet the rigors of 4X4 short course racing. In fact, each system includes everything any short course enthusiast could ever want: It boasts electronic timing, on-board programming with 14 adjustable parameters, a brand new braking system and it comes with the most powerful short course motor available.
There are two systems available: Havoc Pro SC/Ballistic 550 Short Course System – 4.5T (#3115) and Havoc Pro SC/Ballistic 550 Short Course System – 4.5T TRA (#3116). The Havoc Pro SC (#3115) is compatible with most 4WD short course trucks, including OFNA’s® Hyper 10 SC™ and Jammin’ SCRT 10™. The Havoc Pro SC (#3116) is specifically designed for the Traxxas® customer. It includes an install plate and a Traxxas®-compatible battery connector to fit easily into Traxxas’® Slash 4X4™. Both 4.5T short course systems also include a free rugged 5mm pinion gear (14T Mod 1 for #3115 and 13T 32-Pitch for #3116).
Note: Novak’s Havoc Pro SC/Ballistic Systems #3117 (5.5T Durango®) and #3119 (4.5T Associated®) are available at your local dealer.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR SHORT COURSE
Novak has piled on numerous new features to completely reinvent the Havoc Pro SC. From its smaller case and new cross-cut heat sink to its completely redesigned software, you won’t even recognize it! Among the Havoc Pro SC’s many new features is its Dynamic Timing Advance™. This electronic motor-timing feature has eight adjustable timing settings and increases the motor RPM dynamically throughout the throttle band. The additional RPM, in turn, results in higher speeds and improved speed control performance. Moreover, Novak added a timing indicator LED, which will illuminate white whenever timing is activated. This feature will help aid club racing events that run timing and non-timing events.
To combat overheating while timing advance is activated, Novak has upgraded its Thermal Overload Protection™ feature. If the ESC starts to overheat, the speed control will turn off the timing advance. If ESC’s temperature continues to rise, a second thermal-protection feature will engage. This feature drops the speed control’s power to 25 percent, so drivers can safely maneuver their vehicle off of the track. This refined protection feature is exclusive to Novak’s newest sensored speed controls, like the Havoc Pro SC.
On top of that, Novak is introducing a temperature indicator that alerts racers of their ESC’s temperature after each run. This indicator is so accurate that many racers use it in place of a temperature gun. A quick tap on the One Touch™ button at the end of a run will display the speed control’s temperature via a blinking LED.
Another feature that originated with Novak’s design team is the patent-pending NovaBrakes™. This revolutionary braking system provides instantaneous braking under any timing condition. Additionally, the brake response is incredibly smooth and immediate at any speed or throttle position, ridding the ESC of brake delay. In short, this new braking system has completely transformed the feel, response and use of traditional brakes.
Combined with the NovaBrakes, Novak has refined the Havoc Pro SC’s brake and drive frequency settings, and added a brake end point adjustment to provide drivers with unparalleled brake and throttle tuning options. The brake and drive frequency settings allow users to experiment with a softer or heartier brake and throttle input.
Additionally, Novak has equipped the Havoc Pro SC with a Hall Sensor Test™. When activated, this test quickly verifies if the sensor harness and sensor in the motor are functioning properly without any risk to the ESC or motor. This Hall Sensor Test is an invaluable tool when troubleshooting at the race track.
IT’S 550 OR NOTHING
Novak’s new 550-sized motors are a powerful complement to the sophisticated Havoc Pro SC. The Ballistic 550s are so dominant because of their extra long stator and rotor magnet. In fact, the stator and rotor magnet are twice the length of 540-sized motors, giving them twice the torque of an equivalent 540 motor. Additionally, these larger-sized motors run cooler and more efficiently than their 540 counterparts. On top of that, the Ballistic 550s are allowed by ROAR for 4WD Short Course racing. And like the Ballistic name implies, these motors are completely rebuildable and feature interchangeable wound stator construction.
