Sir Holmes, sorry for blowing you up but is there a way for me to tell which address you shipped my motor to? My PayPal shipping address is different than the one I put in through your site.

It says it is being delivered tomorrow so I want to be sure I am there to get it at whichever address it's going to.

Again, sorry for doing this in the thread - I always hate when people do that but I assumed you get bombarded with e-mail and for good reason you have PMs disabled.

Thank you, sir!

I'll have to check when I get to work. I didn't see my worker pick up the soldering iron yesterday, if he forgot to put on those motor leads I'm yanking out his toenails. I even reminded him twice while he was going through orders.

Oh man...I hope he did! I'm terrible at soldering!

You should have my e-mail on file if you just want to e-mail me and let me know where it's being sent.

Thanks much!

Just sent you an e-mail but it looks like this poor guy is going to be missing some toenails!

The motor itself looks like an amazing piece of art - highest quality I have ever seen, that's for sure!

Thank you, sir!

Close to it. 5.15oz would be easy to hit. With a bit more work and cherry picked armatures we could hit 5 ounces. With that amount of labor it would be the same price as a set of Puller 500s, so it would only be worth it IMO if you had time constraints.

Which would be better 13t crawl master or 27t torque master? Axial wraith kit and your brxl. Going to be a around the yard play toy some light crawling and trail riding. Also can I come to your shop to pick them up I'm by St. Louis or can you ship them next day?

We have parts to build both motors, and typically ship within 48 hours of the order this time of year. An EMS shipment could be done no problem. You could come and pick up the order if you are travelling through town, we would just need to coordinate it with my workers or myself.

Either motor will be a good choice. I would choose the Crawlmaster for better low speed control. If you want better torque the TorqueMaster version is a good choice. Since you will use the BRXL the drag brake doesn't matter.

Hey Mr.Holmes. Jus wanna say awesome products and definitely awesome service. So I recently bought a 11t armature for my crawlmaster pro. When I ordered the armature luckily I also ordered extra brushes. Ever since installing this armature setup ive been killing brushes after every run . Any idea why this might be happening and I was also wondering which brush set would you run in a motor like this since you have like 3 different brush options. Im running this setup on 2 and 3s only. Thanks for the help.

First try setting the timing between 12 and 24 degrees advance. That should help. Faster motors eat up brushes faster. Replacements are the standup soft copper type.

Ok awesome I will try that and I will be ordering those brushes right now. Oh and does it matter if I'm running a two speed trans so that's why it's killing brushes faster since its spinning super fast ?

With short runtimes like in a competition, you won't have heat problems. You will notice a loss in drag brake VS using a larger ESC.


If using the micros for fun playing, just keep an eye on the temps and stop if the ESCs hit 160f.

I have sent 2 emails, 1 through rcc the other through your website and still have not gotten a reply. I would like to order 2 motors but am unsure which 2 best fit my application.

please let me know if there is another way to contact you.


thanks,

L.R.
