Novak ditches the lights for ‘Pit Wizard’ programmer


Programming Box

The wait is over, as Novak ditches the ‘light system’ for the easy-to-use Pit Wizard programming box. This handheld device allows users to adjust all of the parameters of the Activ8 V2 ESC. Novak’s Pit Wizard Plus is much more than your average Programming or Multi-Function box. Not only can you adjust every parameter of your Novak ESC, but you can stay up-to-date with the latest ESC and programming box firmware via the USB link. Additional functions include a Voltage Check feature to test the charge status of your battery pack, and a Transmitter Mode to help trouble-shoot unknown issues and calibrate detailed settings of your radio gear. Temperature data from the ESC’s data logging memory is also accessible to help monitor the operating temperature during a track or bashing run. The Pit Wizard Plus includes an easy-to-read LCD display and simple logic so that programming your ESC or accessing additional features is a snap.
