The Ultimate Multi-Function Crawler/Basher Speed Control The Crusher was born out of the need to fill the gap of a single multi-functional speed control that could accommodate a multitude of applications -- rock crawlers, rock racers, short course, and even the heavy-duty RC applications that have no category! The Novak Crusher 2S, 3S, and 4S-rated, sensor-based brushless ESC fills that gap and provides amazing power, response and speed at your fingertips. With auto-detect LiPo sensing and complete onboard programming, the Crusher brings a new level of user-friendly operation and on-the-spot adjustability. The Crusher is wired and ready to install. It includes a replaceable receiver harness, a full coverage heat sink, cooling fan, and its sealed case design means the Crusher is ready to rock right out of the box!

When used with Novak rock crawling brushless motors, the Crusher can operate in instant-reverse or Crawling Mode. This mode has proven to be a favorite among brushless rock crawlers and offers unique braking and forward/reverse operation that has no reverse delay, which allows instant reverse! This mode also features Novak’s exclusive powered hill/hold/drag brake when used with a Novak crawling motor. The powered hill/hold/drag provides the strongest automatic neutral point brakes to date. This means even the heaviest of vehicles will hold on the steepest of inclines. The 100% pure sensor-based design ensures ultra-fine, low speed control, and non-stop torque throughout the throttle range.

When used with standard Novak brushless motors (or Novak crawling brushless motors*) the Crusher is a full-featured bashing ESC for 2S, 3S, or 4S LiPo setups. The Crusher is not your typical bashing ESC with limited settings, lock out modes, or slimmed down construction. The Crusher is based on Novak's pro race-level ESC platform, and has complete onboard adjustability with fan favorite default settings. The Crusher is suited for normal sized 540 motors, and will handle the larger 550 motors with ease as well.

Boost is back! Exclusive to the Crusher when used with Novak motors and 2S LiPo packs. But what is it? RPM Boost Timing is Novak’s race-proven Dynamic Timing Advance and Xtra Timing combined to give your motor higher RPM at full throttle! That's right, when you're in the wide-open spaces, you can always use a bit more "braaap." That's exactly what RPM Boost does, it gives you a kick in the pants to get you there sooner! The ESC uses electronic timing advance to increase the motor RPM under specific motor RPM and throttle conditions to provide extra top speed.

Novak X-Drive provides 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 Crusher. No ESC is complete without X-Drive!

Full-Coverage Heat Sink - For proper heat dissipation, the Crusher takes full advantage of its robust size and features a full-size, cross-cut heat sink that has direct contact with all of the power MOSFETs. Whether you are ripping through the high desert or climbing mountains in the heat of the day, the heat sink is the first line of defense against heat build-up. Cooling fan included. Heavy Duty High-Power PCB - The Crusher uses an extremely heavy-duty and thick PC board that is embedded with massive, pure copper traces to ensure your ESC performs at its best. Factory Installed Power Wires - The Crusher comes factory-installed with 14 gauge silicone battery and motor power wires that are easy to replace for factory-like, re-wire jobs. These power wires don’t just have a “14” printed on them - they are top-quality, Novak Super-Flex wires. High-Powered 5 Amp BEC - The Crusher’s built-in BEC is based on the proven linear regulator BEC in racing ESCs. This ESC provides 6 volts and up to 5 amps of receiver and servo power. If a high-amperage servo is used, an external BEC is recommended (Novak #5465 for 2S setups and #5463 for 3S and 4S setups).
