yes they did. Gonna start building up motors and try to get all the backorders out tomorrow. It will be a long day, I have to wake up at 5am to start engagement photos. Then we have an appointment with the wedding dj. Oh what fun.

I'd like to get on the list for two 16t motors, is it to late to get some or do I have to wait until the next batch.

Just put up another 20 on the site yesterday or the day before. Looks like only one is left, so you will need to pick them up as a "custom" wind and get into the next batch if you want to purchase now.

We have 13t and 28t in stock right now othewise.

Cool - do you think 13t on 3s will be too much for an xr10? Otherwise I can wait for the 16 t to show up.

Tnx

I just broke gears with 13t on 4s, and I wasn't pulling the trigger much. Too much is really measured by your throttle finger. A 32t on 2s would need the trigger buried before parts breakage. A 13t is touchy.

The 16t will make your ESC much happier and will be suitable for competition use. If you want to have a little crazy setup, go with the 13t.

I got the 16T and brxl installed in my wraith and love it!! That motor is so smooth on 3s but will still throw rooster tails when I want. I will never run a different motor again! Thanks again john.

I ran the stock set up with no problems, super smooth all the way around and still able to ring donuts and jump it.

Well ran mine on the rocks for the first time and wow very smooth and the wheel speed is insane love it. My only issue is the incline drag brake but have seen around and am not the only one with this little issue have gotten a couple of ideas on how to take care or improve this so will be doing some testing this week and weekend.

Great product and product support thanks John.

Well changed out the spring that came with my motors to some new heavy black ones I had from HH and that improved my incline roll back. Gonna head out this weekend and see how they hold out on the rocks.

I will measure the spring rate on the stockers and see if we can get a heavier one to address the brush drag.

What ESC are you using and what is the drag amount?

The ones stock on the motor are the heaviest we can currently get. 10.4 ounces on the spring scale. Trinity heavy purples (13oz rated) measure about 9.1 ounces.


I will look into getting heavier springs made. Otherwise an ESC with active hold brakes will be needed.
