Quick question: Can you fit a 550 motor in the Enduro?

Just went wheeling with it and was nicely surprised at the geometry. Can't say I noticed much overdrive pull, but 7% isn't much. Motor is nice and smooth, ESC and radio doesn't really do it much justice. No bump steer really. bumpers gotta go.

Hey Just my .02. Just received my holmes "Devolver" 1800kv, tried it with a sidewinder 3.... nightmare contacted holmes hobbies and talked with Jeff. Ended up picking up a sidewinder 4 at lhs and am astonished how smooth the startup is. 15t pinion gear remainder of drivetrain is stock. Hitec 7954sh and a cut tf2 plastic front bumper and this thing goes anywhere you point it.... details and pics to follow in build thread. To op keep churning out great products. My first HH motor my others are team brood brushed but wanted to try holmes. Not disappointed at all. Though the sv3 was truly rough...

Yeah, the Castle Creations Sidewinder 3 is old tech - the Mamba X-series is much smoother, and the Sidewinder 4 slightly smoother still on low-speed startup. I have the older version Holmes Hobbies Revolver sensorless 1800kv paired with a Mamba X and it was a revelation!

Good to hear that the super-budget Devolver you picked up is doing well...

I've just been driving the enduro stock for a while. Had some big "admin" duties on my plate the past few months and have just been skirting by and only playing with my rigs a few hours a week.


Still can't decide what to throw in it for the next set of electronics . I've really been enjoying brushed motors lately, especially Magnums. drives like a Revolver but without the noise. Easy for me to afford a bunch of Magnums though, especially if I wind and assemble them myself and don't pay my employee that typically winds, assembles , and processes motors. I know they aren't exactly a budget choice. Still my favorite right now.

I've got a Micro Mamba X Crawler edition with a HH PP 2700 Stubby coming for mine, as it's going to be a lighter-weight build than my other vehicles.

Got high hopes!

Hello John!
What about a Puller 400 Brushed? Main differences VS Magnum?

Concerning brushless Why a mamba X rather than a MicroX (Control??)

Thank's in advance

A puller 400 or 500 would work too. Magnum is just more torque, I like the way it drives like a revolver.

I tend to choose the full size X controller because it has a beefy BEC and runs 4s.

I actually got an 6 pole sensored motor for another manufacturer pairing with an micro X and a 18t pinion gear. Everything in powering by a 3S small LiHV batteries pack (between 1000 and 3600 and more than 70C). It gives me wheel speed but sometimes I wish I had a better low end. I don't want to gear down more than this.

Not Sure I could live with the Groovemaster noise : to funky for my taste !

I've got en HV1080 and I would like to taste the torque of a magnum motor (11t or 13tt). Where and when will this product be back in stock? I heared about a new motor can (stubby) True?
