I am looking to build a Ax10.

Thanks
The Crawlmaster is a larger motor and has more power. I used to run a bigger motor like that...a Z3013-16. The thing is...depending on your trans you might need to trim a bit for the larger outrunners to fit. The Revolver being a little smaller doesn't have these fit issues -- and it still has PLENTY of power. As I've noted in other posts above...I love mine. I have one in my Hilux HL and one in my TLT-based crawling rig.

If I were you, I'd go with the Sidewinder/Revolver combo.

Yeah, sure do. Would a Castle BEC be a good idea to run with that setup?

The CC BEC is always nice, but not necessarily required. I'd go with one for the Sidewinder. It's always good to have some power overhead.

Thanks. Ordered a Sidewinder, BEC, and Revolver Black. Should be pretty good for an ax-10.

Just placed an order for one unit.

Hope this has enough wheelspeed w/ a 8 or 9 tooth pinion for me
I was eyeing the HK-2221-12 as well but couldn't get any input on it, I like the kv rating.

EDIT: JRH - You should send me a sticker with my order

Well the revolver is always a good choice for an outrunner! I still like them better than the crawlmasters, they are easier to build around. Plenty of power too.
