I sent them an email to alert them to the new products. Not sure if they've ordered. If customers would email they will act quicker

FYI, RPP has them in stock. I ordered a 15t 550 earlier in the week and it arrived yesterday.

Hi John, I want to order one of these soon for an SCX10-II raw builderís kit.

I was looking at the chart on your site and see that the Crawlmaster Sport 540 16T is compatible with the stock gearing on the SCX10-II kit and RTR.

Would a 550 12T also work without changing the gearing? The KV is a bit higher, but not much. Thanks for your help.

It will be slightly fast, but the extra torque of the 550 should make it just fine IMO.

Thanks for the reply. Would it still be okay with a 3s lipo? I’ve never run lipo before, thought about doing that with this build. And if I wanted to gear down, is that just a matter of installing a smaller pinion gear on the motor?

Edit: or maybe 3s is overkill, I’m just looking for smooth, low speed performance, don’t care as much about speed.

I want to order Crawlmaster Sport 550 12T for my TRX-4 Sport kit build. Will it be compatible with Hobbywing 1080 ESC, on 3S?

Yes, it will be perfectly fine.

Default New Crawlmaster Sport 540 and 550 motors!

What is the right 540 can to fit the capra? I have a Castle sidewinder 4 ESC but I donít want to spend too much money on the motor since I read these new crawlmaater sport is more than enough.
I have a revolver and an yellow jacket which I use in my Toyzuki because of the fitting, and I really hate how they rumble at low speed. Any advice?

I'd think the 16t 540 Crawlmaster Sport would be a good fit. It's about a 1500kv equivalent.
If you need more speed than that, I'm sure the 13t is still a great choice.

Just ordered a 540 16t. Never used a brushed motor before so hoping this gives me good torque with some wheel speed on my C2 build! Going to start it off on a HW 10BL60 WP which i have lying around here and if its not up to par, will get a 1080.

EDIT: well upon researching this ESC, it seems it can't switch between brushed and brushless. Looks like I will be getting 1080!

I just got the 20t, maybe I can get a little more speed with a higher teeth pinion, what do you recommend?

Yeah I'm sure it would be ok, just don't go too high too fast.

Hey John. I'm going to pick up one of the new 12T 550 Crawl Master motors for my trx4 sport. I'm going to order the motor from my LHS with the wire leads. What size bullet connectors do you use on your wires? Thanks

Motors finally arrived and I replaced the 27t 540 trailmaster sport with the 13t 540 crawlmaster sport. I did not change anything else and ran it with the old and new motor on my little test track.
The difference is huge. I expected a difference of course, but it is much bigger then I thought.
The control and smoothness in combination with the 1080 esc is brilliant, especially for such a price tag.
Looking forward to compare the 21t 550 with the 12t 550.

The little HH stickers are cool
