My apologies on the long wait for the slotting. At least it will be well worth it for these little guys.

If there is a list forming for these guys, would it be possible to be marked down for a pair of the 16T Slotted? Or even PayPal in advance?

I will need to get another batch done. I would assume it will take about 2 to 3 weeks to complete, and I am not fond of taking money up front. I can give you a heads up when I get them done.

I completely understand the not "holding money" thing. I do my sales the same way. (I am a tiny vendor, but I know that it is safer/easier to do business this way) If you can give me a "heads up" when some are available, that would be very cool. Thanks much.

It will handle 3s, just gets a bit warm depending on how you drive it. The 11t gets really hot on 3s, and the 16t rides pretty cool.

Question

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but...

would the 14t 454 be a good choice for a Honcho? The AE-2 esc can be programmed via castle link and has manual lipo cutoffs for 2-6s. I'm looking for something with a good bit of wheelspeed...bash/mud/trail truck.

The 454 won't have much mass to take a lot of wheelspeed. In a honcho I am afraid it would overheat unless it was geared very slow. A 540 or 550 size motor would be a better choice.

Im running a losi MOA and I have a set of Integy Lathes , and a set of your 454 pullers in 14t. I have 3s and 4s batteries. The 35t are just getting me by on 3s, not enough grunt for gap's and bumping. Will your pullers on 3s be comparable to the 35t on 3s or better? Can I run your 454 on 4s? Im sorry for all the questions but I have a set of unmolested pullers and I dont want to burn them up. I have no problem with the shortend lifespan of the lathes on 4s. But would rather sell the pullers than cook em trying out stupid stuff. I will be running a fairly light rig at 4.5-5 lbs. 12oz W/F/T. 14/13 pinion with the blc regear. Thanks in advance John.

I don't have enough experience with the losi MOA and puller to really give a good recommendation. I can say that the 16t won't be happy on 4s. I would recommend running your machine wound 35t motors on 4s and see how it does for you.

Thank's for the honest answer. You're a pretty stand up guy. I will be saving up for some of your handwounds soon.

No problem, I try to keep the BS at the farm

My concern with the losi is the amount of work needed to drive the gears. My gut tells me the little motors would just heat up too much.

Received a pair of 454 16T's today, and just had to put them on the Bully. All I can say is that these are pretty impressive. The low speed control is better than I expected, the wheel speed is surprising, and the drag brake is incredible. I can see how these could over-heat in a heavy truck...but in this lighter 5# rig, they definitely feel pretty good. Thanks John.

About how long can these usually go before they need to be serviced I have about 20 packs through them so far

Thanks
