Any chance you will be coming out with some BIG emaxx motors to really test this thing out with?

Got my controllers today, thanks John for all the work you have put into these. I am going to see how the M.O.A Losi likes 4s with some of your 35 turn motors and these new speed controls. With out a CCBEC or ON/ OFF switch it is going to clean up the trucks wiring a lot which is a big plus.

Just did the first test run. Holy crap this thing is smoother on the bottom than a stripper Running an old Integy 35t on 6 NiMH (yeah I know, not pushing it too much am I?) and it's as smooth as a sensored BL. Drag brake kicks ass, too.

The only thing I'm concerned about is those little weeny receiver wires. Are you sure they won't essplode under a 5A draw?

They could warm up, yes. The RX plug itself is a huge limit.

Is that actually smooth?

Let me reread that.

I dunno man, not too sure about that one.

I'll have to try it for myself, then go get some strippers and blow and see where you're coming from.

Any idea on when a decision will be made as to whether you'll be offering these in a waterproof version for an additional fee?

I just smoked my fxr and I love the drag break on the fxr. So if your drag break is compairable or better to a fxr then I will probably get one when I save up some cash.
