Novak – Crawler Paradise

Novak is taking the pain out of mixing and matching parts by combining two great products in one, ready-to-drive combo package. Novak is now offering a 55-turn brushed motor – the Fifty-Five Crawler (#3555) – to harmonize with Novak’s popular brushed ESC – the Rooster Crawler Edition (#1841). The Fifty-Five Brushed Crawler is ideal for crawling because of its precise movement control, and its high-turn count makes for exceptional torque and long-run times. The motor is also completely rebuildable with an easily removable endbell and replaceable brushes, making maintenance a snap. In addition, Novak is pre-installing three motor capacitors to simplify the installation process, so users can be crawling in no time.

The Fifty-Five Crawler Brushed Motor (#3555) is available individually or in a Rooster Crawler Edition ESC/55 Motor Combo (#1842).
