John, looking to get a 20T. How long before they are in stock. The 30T from your original motors didnt do too well in the Teenycar. Need more speed.

I have two here, I just need to be sure they aren't spoken for first. After that I would expect about two weeks for the next round of winding and balancing.

We have a big shipment coming back from the balancer tomorrow. Of course I wound up everything except 20t in the last batch

Looks like they are gone. Want me to put you down for the first two 20t to be done?

How is the drag brake?

I'm running FXrs on mine with about 60% drag on an XR10. Plenty of drag for me.

What would you suggest for a XR10 that will run on 3S.
I'm looking at the Crawlmaster and can't decide which winding I want.

16T seems a bit low but every post I read seems to say that's the "go to" motor. I want Torque more than speed but still want some wheel speed.
I'm no expert in motor since this is my very first electric kit.

My first idea was to get the 32T.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks.

If you have no previous experience with crawling, the 16t will be a lot of speed to deal with. It is just slightly faster than a 35t "normal" motor. It would be my choice for comp crawling though.

If you don't need so much wheelspeed, the 20t or 28t will be a better choice.

Is there other options of HH motor in stock that would give about the same performances?

I mean I'm probably never gonna compete mostly due to my location and it's my first crawler. I just don't want to go cheap on the motors.

Looks like next wednesday for inventory at the moment.

A TorqueMaster Pro 35t would be the closest performance wise.

Just put in a custom order for a 16T and a BR-XL ESC tonight and my gf picked up the tab since today is my birthday!!! Thank for the great products John. Can't wait to try these out in my Wraith when it all gets here.

What turn motor would you recommend in a Honcho, looking for something a little faster than the rtr 27t. I think I read somewhere you recommended the 16t?

Building up a wraith. Looking for a good crawl and crazy wheel speed. Would you run a 16t or 13t and adjust gearing?

The 13t will be closest in speed on 2s. If you are running 3s you could use the 16t instead. We are also winding up some faster motors in the next batch as well.

I would choose the 13t on 3s or 4s for crazy wheel speed!
