Thanks for the video JRH, that's exactly what I wanted to know.....and exactly what I'm trying to get rid of.:-( It looks like the og revolver still is the smoothest motor for the mamba 25. The bm9 I'm running now does exactly what your's did in the video and it's just not smooth enough for my driving style. Thanks though.

$100 for that combo is awesome.

I have other motors on tap to replace the 3025s, I will get them on the site tomorrow most likely.

Thanks,

A highlift would work great with a tiny motor (like the GWS 2215) because of the three speeds, but a Revolver would bolt up very well and have lots and lots of power too. For the ESC I cannot recommend the mamba max enough. The quark 33 is also a great choice right now too, depending on how flexible you want the ESC to be and your budget.

JRH you are killing me!! now i keep going back and forth on my head about the new crawler system and these new option you have now, i love all my bl setups i have gotten from you, i wonder if these new motors have the same power and control as the original outrunners i have on 2 of my clods if the answer is yes then put me up for 2 combos.

The have more power and control than the OG revolvers. Nicer construction all around.

No problem. The mamba 25 is just a bit jerky, I dont know why though.

I love it. The motor sounds like a small turbine even with a quark.

Got a few vids comparing the motor to a hyperion z3013-14. I did a few climbs with no throttle management (some jerkyness is visible) and with proper throttle management to keep the tires turning. This not only compares the two motors (can you tell a difference?) but it also illustrates how driving a brushless outrunner motor takes some time to get used to. I rarely stall out my motors, but I have been driving outrunners in my crawlers for a long time and it is second nature to modulate the throttle properly.

Just got a new shipment of these guys, only took 4 months from the factory! They look great, and will be doing duty in my next scale rig with a 9 cell flat nimh pack.

How would this motor do with a 2s Hyperion LiteStorm pack rated at 20c? It looks like what I want to match up with a Sidewinder, but I want to make sure I don't have to go buy more batteries to run it.

MrNate... What capacity is your pack? I run Hyperion packs as well. My current setup is a 3s 1800 Hyperion, Revolver w/10T, R2, Quark 33 which I'm really enjoying. I used to run a 2s 1500 Hyperion, Z3013-16 w/15T, R2, Quark 33 and it was OK, but a little slower. I'd say you should be fine so long as you have a 1500 or larger.

It's an 1800mah pack, I've got a few for my RC18T, so that gives you an idea of their physical size.

What is the difference between the Revolver Black and the GWS the comes in the combo.

Do you think that a sidewinder/revolver black is better/same/worse than a Sidewinder/crawlmaster sport combo

I am looking to build a Ax10.

Thanks

You should be fine. Like I said...same packs I use. Started using them (2s 1500's) in my 18B. Then used the 2s 1500 in my rig...then moved to 3s 1800.

Just keep in mind..."volt up, gear down". If you have cogging you can try to gear down a bit and if that doesn't work...you might want to move to a 3s. You probably already know where to get Hyperion packs for 10% off w/free shipping.
