This is the Novak Crusher/4PHD 4 Pole Brushless System. Novak has paired the updated Crusher speed control with the Novak 4PHD 4600Kv 4-Pole sensor-based motor, making the perfect combo for heavy-duty 4X4 applications. Novak’s 4PHD motor provides massive power and torque. Heavy loads, hard throttle and tough conditions are handled with ease. Novak’s rugged, purely sensor-based Crusher ESC, with its Simple Tuner interface, will provide crisp and smooth throttle response. With added features like complete on-board programming, sealed case, auto-detect LiPo cutoff, dynamic timing, ESC thermal protection, and a rebuildable motor, the Crusher/4PHD 4-Pole Brushless System is a great blend of performance and easy-to-use features that is ready to power your project today.
