Then it's not backorder, it's out of stock! I'll recharge inventory and get the new batch going.

Hi,

I have two Crawlmaster 20T (check point brushes) motors I'm using with two CC Mamba Micro Pros in my Berg. Unfortunately I do not like how the drag brake works. Would it be possible to replace the 5 slot arms with 3 slot arms? If yes, what turn would you recommend to keep the same kv rating?

Thanks,
Heido

You can use a 3 slot arm with 7.5mm comm. A 35t would be the closest in speed.

Select the second option, 3 slot 5mm web 7.5mm comm

Got 'em in my Bully 2 MOA crawler. I like them a lot so far.

Gotta wait for the snow to go away to really find out, but so far so good.

Hi! Recently purchased your motor 16T (Holmes Hobbies CrawlMaster Pro Motor 540). Today rode it, but as that rastroilsya speed no faster than 35t of RC4WD. Pin use 20T and 88 Spur, lipo 7,4 V and Holmes Hobbies TorqueMaster BR-HL/It not believe that he is so slow, you may prompt culture is set to adjust.

The crawlmaster is a five slot motor, so the winds are not the same as three slot. 16t Crawlmaster is about the same as a 35t normal motor in speed.

Been using my 13T crawlmaster for a few packs now and I am super happy with it. Great low end control and plenty of top speed. Way faster than my 30T pro was and better low end. This is now my go-to motor.

okay I am fairly new to the hobby and most of my cars are stock ESCs and motors. I am going to up grade my SCX10. I am on the fence about what to buy, I'm thinking about the torquemaster with 13T motor or the castle sidewinder 3800kv. I know one is brushed and one brushless. Any input would help.

If you use brushless make sure it is sensored. It won't have very good low end control if it's sensorless.
Personally I feel the BRXL and 13T crawlmaster are a great set up for trail and scale comp use. Your not goinging to be clearing any table top jumps with it but it's enough to hop the occasional gap on the trail and the low end control and torque are great. I run only 3S so if you're on 2S things may change some.

I've been reading up again on motors and ESCs. it seems a lot of guys are running 4S batteries with brushless sensored motors. what I have been getting is they are running smaller milliamp batteries, 2200-2800ish with of the 4S plenty of power to crawl with less about ones gearing cause of the extra power and when they need more speed it's there at the ready again cause of the battery. How are the Holmes motors with that much battery.
