Yes, exactly. TM has more drag and won't turn as slow.

so to be close to mechanical brake as losi lcc you suggest me torquemaster instead of crawlmaster?
with active hold tires are completely locked when i release throttle?

until few day after your explanation i will order 2 BR-Xl and 2 hh motors.

active hold can lock up completely, no matter what motor.

For best mechanical brake without Hold mode, the TorqueMaster is better. With the losi, you don't need drag brake so any motor will work fine.

but..hold mode is in the long run dangerous for motors ?
does crawlmaster with hold mode lock tires completely?
i have to reach a goal closest to mechanical brake but i like the smoothness of crawlmaster that you describe

Hold mode can wear on the motor a bit, especially if it is turned too high. Hold mode will lock any motor, even the crawlmaster.

so generally so suggest to combine hold mode and standard drag brake for motor longevity?

I suggest turning down the hold as low as possible to keep the motor happy. It is a fine balance.

So it sounds like I may not have much brake with my FXRs ? Should I rethink these or will they work for me?

Do you have any idea when you maybe getting the parts for these? I ordered custom 17 t motors and I now want 16 t motors when they are available. Please let me know if you can change my order.

Thanks for the bump.

I can certainly do that, I have some 16t arms just finished we can ship you. Can you send me an email confirmation with your order number, or post your order number here so there is no mistake on who you are?

Hi John,

I'm sure you're still playing catch up, but do you know when you'll have more Crawlmasters back in stock? In particular, I'm interested in a 13t for my Wraith.

Thanks in advance!
Tommy

We should have more 13t done soon, we are waiting for more balance epoxy for the next batch. Epoxy should come in this week, we have 50x wound and ready for balancing.

John, any updates on your stock status for the Crawlmasters? Particularly a 13t?

Quite well I would say. I would suggest a 20t or slower.

Just got some finished up, I will finish up some repairs I have today and then update the site later.


We will have 16t and 13t inventory updated on the site in a few hours here.
