We are out of armatures right now, but should get more any day now and will wind them up immediately.

was wondering if you have had a chance to look into the none hold on these motors on bergs, been asking around and looks like being that the berg has so less gears than an XR this is why they roll, thanks.

I am interested in a set of these 16t or 20t for my XR10. I am running 45T torqueMasters now and I am looking for more wheel speed. Thanks

I would say a 19t or 18t would be your good bet. I can custom 17t motors now and will be adding more options in the next coming weeks I plan to offer every wind in the coming weeks, with double and triple options as well.

The 20t will be the closest in stock wind I have. It is the closest to a 45t.

I am running 45t now I want the speed of a 35t but in the crawlmasters. It looks like you are saying 17t crawlmasters right? can I put an order in for these with you now? Please advise.

The last lot of armatures that Sagami made were wrong, we are waiting on a fresh batch. The current lot of armatures being finished are all 13 and 16t and should be ready within two weeks. After that we will have all of the equipment in house for finishing the motors and things will go much faster.

Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the Awesome motors. I am loving my 16t's. Amazing wheel speed and great low end. Now I just have to upgrade all my upper rod ends. 3 times out and they are all stretched out from that Crawlmaster Torque.

Comp run of some Crawlmaster 16t's . 3S 850mah TP pack, 5.5lb berg, perfect low end combo for the pin tires (CrawlerInnovations HB Block's in video). Or whatever tires you want!

Awesome low end with great punch, as stated before. Thanks Holmes!

RockedUpRicky shooting the video. Watch out at 3:06! Ricky gets a rowdy with some words. Sorry for making that gate .

Shane let me drive his rig after the comp, some of these 16's will be my next motors. The low end coupled with the broad powerband is impressive.

Hi John,

I'm in the process of building my Wraith into a TTC rig. I'm debating between the 13t CrawlMaster and the 7t Puller. I plan on running 3s either way. What would be the pros/cons to either option? I want it to be pretty darn fast, but obviously also need it to crawl well. I also plan on keeping it as light as I can, but it'll still be pretty heavy I'm sure.

Thanks!
Tommy

Thanks for the feedback fellas! Glad you like them!

The 7t puller would run hot on 3s, so it would only be good as a competition setup IMO. The 13t CM would be a better setup.

"But of course you can't get something for nothing...
Construction takes much longer, the little bastards
Drag brake is slightly weaker unless Active Hold is engaged"

so without Active hold, crawlmaster drag brake is weaker then torquemaster drag brake?
torquemaster has more drag brake and less low end then crawlmaster in other words?
