This is the Novak Pulse V2 Brushless ESC Race Combo, with an included 17.5 Turn Vulcan Brushless Spec Motor. Novak’s has combined their top-of-the-line 1/10-scale racing ESC and the extreme-power 17.5T spec motor to deliver the ultimate package for power-hungry spec racers. The Pulse V2 is a proven pro-mod ESC that uses the best wire, power cap, and internal components for a no-holds-barred ESC. This pro-level ESC also features Novak X-Drive™ for excellent throttle/brake response, Super-Tuner™ firmware interface for complete and quick customization, and a heavy-duty 5-A built-in BEC. The Vulcan Spec 17.5T uses Novak’s Red-Wire, a hand wound high-RPM stator and a 12.5mm tuning rotor, producing one of the most desirable motors to have in the spec-racing world.

For sanctioned spec-class racing dominance, the Vulcan Spec uses the largest wire diameter permitted, and is hand-wound (US-made red wire), assembled and tested by Novak motor experts. The combination of American red wire and Novak's race-winning stator design has been proven time and time again to provide the performance advantage all racers are looking for. The Vulcan motor is 100% user-rebuildable, tunable, and serviceable. It is a blend of performance and quality that is unmatched and backed by a name you can trust.

The Pulse V2 ESC/Vulcan Spec system is factory-wired with Novak's power wire, defaulted to the optimal racing profile, includes a cooling fan, and is ready to install and race out of the box.
