Default Tekin, castle and Holmes oh my!

Iím looking to upgrade to a brushless system in my 10.2 truggy that I have for no other reason than I want a brushless system. Iím stuck on what I want to get. Cost isnít the issue, otherwise I wouldnít have mentioned tekin. Looking to get peopleís experience with the different setups Iím considering. Tekin rx4 with a roc 412 3100kv or the mamba x with the roc 412 3100kv or a Holmes puller Pro in 2700kv or 3300kv. It will be run on 3s and Iím coming from a hw1080 with a hackmoto 35t brushed motor. Bec isnít a concern as Iím running a 3brothers g13 servo which runs off of direct battery power. Just looking to see what people have had experience with. Iím leaning towards the tekin combo but couldnít really find that much information with the search function. Any input is appreciated.

Put one vote up for the Mamba X and puller pro. I don't have any experience with the others but I love that combo in my Wraith.

For pure crawling I also love my Sidewinder 4/Revolver 1800kv setup.

Seconding this, Holmes and a Castle ESC is my preference for crawling. I haven't used a Puller Pro as of yet, but my Trailmaster Pro is amazingly smooth. The Puller being 4 pole vs 2 pole, should only increase the smoothness.

The SW4 is an amazing sensorless ESC, and the revolver is great if you don't mind the slight increase of noise from the motor.

I've run both the puller motors and the roc412 and the Holmes Puller has a better smoothness at low speeds. If it says anything the roc 412 has shifted from crawling duties to powering a basher.

If you want a Tekin with smoother low end you can use the Pro4. Less grunt at low speed compared to Roc412, but smoother startup and feeling.
