This pure, sensor-based brushless pro racing ESC is designed to accommodate the high-end demands of any and all heavy-duty 2S LiPo racing applications, from modified touring to open 4x4 SCT. The Pulse is a ground-up firmware re-design to a proven, race-winning hardware platform, for ultra-reliability. The Pulse features Novak’s new Super-Tuner interface for the fastest set-up changes with the simplest & most adjustable menu system to-date, Xtra-Timing that adds the Maximum possible timing advance at full throttle for unbelievable top speeds, and Novak’s X-Drive for ultimate performance. Also standard is the most robust built-in 5 Amp BEC on the market, and ultra-duty 12G power wire. The next generation of heavy-duty racing ESCs has arrived, the Novak Pulse. Keep your finger on the pulse of the racing world!

To deliver unmatched performance and usability in the high-end ESC category, Novak engineers developed enhanced, on-board programming to ensure that customizing and tuning the Pulse to your racing style has never been easier. With Novak’s Super-Tuner interface, nothing extra is needed, and making changes trackside is a snap! Gone are the days of special boxes, programmers, or lugging expensive laptops to the dusty track. Novak’s Super-Tuner interface features a modern menu system that is accessed with the ESC’s programming button and 5 different-colored LEDs. Multiple parameters are adjustable including Start & Final RPM. These values use a unique table system that covers all usable RPM ranges. Dynamic Timing Advance can be adjusted in 1-degree increments, or in 10-degree steps. The tuning options are endless!

The Novak-developed Super-Tuner also has 5 throttle profiles that can be tuned individually and saved independently. Never before has ESC customizing and tuning been this robust and so easy to make changes at the track. The Super-Tuner interface allows a driver to set up 5 profiles for different types of classes, or 5 similar profiles to quickly and easily make major changes to the ESC. Each setting can be set up for different conditions and can be changed faster than you can say “Where's my laptop?”. The Pulse comes pre-loaded with factory profiles suited for today’s most popular applications:

  • Profile 1: No timing, “blinky mode”, with classic default values that are suited for most conditions.
  • Profile 2: No timing, “blinky mode”, with higher minimum brake & drive values for higher-grip conditions.
  • Profile 3: Mild timing set-up similar to Profile #1 with timing turned ON and a wide default RPM range.
  • Profile 4: Medium timing profile with mild timing settings and a more aggressive RPM range.
  • Profile 5: No timing, “blinky mode”, just like Profile #1, but with Reverse turned ON. Great for practice or bashing!
    *All Throttle Profiles have Smart-Stop LiPo Voltage Cut-Off Circuitry active by default for safe operation with LiPo battery packs.

    For unmatched top speeds & incredible power, Novak engineers took electronic motor timing to a whole new level. Novak's Xtra-Timing is the all-new algorithm to control the second-level timing that is applied “on top of” the Dynamic Timing Advance when the exact conditions have been met. The Xtra-Timing interface looks at your motor's RPM, how quickly the motor is accelerating, the throttle position, as well as a few other top secret factors to give your motor insane RPM increases. This feature is for experienced experts only!

    The Super-Tuner firmware in the Pulse ESC includes 6 specialized RPM tables for fine-tuning of the Dynamic Timing Advance. Tables include: 1S Racing; 2S Spec Racing; 2S Mod Racing (fine step range); 2S General/SCT Racing (coarse steps & wider range); Open/Speed Run; and a very specialized 10.5T Large Track RPM table. Each table features evenly-spaced RPM steps throughout the range of user-selectable start and final RPMs that are independently chosen to tell the ESC when to turn on the Dynamic Timing Advance.

    Novak X-Drive will provide incredibly smooth throttle response while maintaining an extremely connected and controlled feel. This motor-firing technology has been taking the racing world by storm and is now included in the Pulse. No competition ESC is complete without X-Drive!

    You race to win. So why install a controller that’s not up for the challenge? The Pulse uses rugged, high quality components to ensure your vehicle keeps running pack after pack.
