About four weeks best estimate.

I do have stickers on lock, thanks. Found a printer who could get the 1mm margins right.

John, I got my ESC installed today and WOW!!! IT IS SWEEEEEEETTTT!! Super buttery smooth low end and incredible punch! No straining at all from my servo. onboard BEC works great. Programming was a breeze with my Castle Link!

You did a great job on these!!! I'll likely be ordering another one if I decide to go dual ESC's on my berg!

I ran one of these ESCs in a Rock Force last night. I am using a Traxxas Titan motor, high speed gears, a 3 cell lipo.

The punch, power, start up and speed are all great. The other esc I tried in this truck just failed to produce punch and speed that the Holmes Esc makes.

I love this esc in my Berg, but it is absolutely awesome in waking up a worm geared rig. The BEC works flawless also.

7t puller shouldn't be run on more than 3s. The motors will run hot.

Could the 10t handle 3s? Or can I re-wind the 7t to a little higher turn?

Hey John, have you been able to test the drag and hold brakes on a big rig yet? I plan on letting my Super set under the bench until you have the brakes turned up.

I run dual BR-XL's in my Super and the brake holds just fine with Holmes Handwound motors.

This is a good question, can we pre-order? I noticed your website didn't feature that option.

I won't accept preorders until I know exactly when the controllers will be in my hands. Basically after they are built. Nothing as frustrating as taking money and then having the build date pushed back a week or more.

okay, but i have faith in you and your products!!

i just dont want to miss out, and i dont think youll have them in stock for long!!!

Im completley re-bulding my rig and refuse to put any other ESC in it, so i really wouldnt mind waiting any period of time, should i be assured one was mine!

Shit, id pay an extra $10 for the luxury lol

3 to 4 best estimate, I haven't gotten an update from the factory floor in a few weeks.
