I would recommend a 1500 2 cell 15C minimum, and 2100 3 cell 15C min. (assuming lipo)

You should be coming up tomorrow. I have hired some help for 5 hours to get the rest out.

Got shipped out in today's mail. I missed the Saturday cutoff.



If all goes well every backorder should be taken care of by tomorrow evening. School is just taking a lot more of my time that I had planned for right now, it is like I have two full time jobs

Kicking around preordering a 7t, but am wondering if you have any plans to do a 10t run? The wheelspeed in the 7t looks awesome, but I have a hard time imagining that I'll need all that in a crawler. I'd rather preserve the run time. Would I see much difference? As always, thanks for taking the time to answer our zillions of questions. BTW, got my lipo in the mail today, and it looks like it'll suit my needs great. Thanks!

I am getting quotes from the factory for some 10t armatures, just waiting to hear back. If you don't want so much wheelspeed, just use lower voltage or gear down if possible. I can guarantee that you will find a use for the wheelspeed when you have it though.

I'm sure. I don't really want to buy new batteries, as I've got a fair amount of $$$ invested, and I really like the speed. Can't gear down much lower. I'm running Maxx driveshafts. I might try to shave them down a little, but I'm concerned about weakening them. How much faster is the 7t?

It is about 2300kv I think, maybe 2200 unloaded. It should be on my website. A bit more than twice the speed of a 55t.

Sorry, I seem to have my noob brain on. If I remember correctly the 10t is 1800kv? It'd be a little slower than the 7t, a little better run time, and still about 10,000x times more parts breaking torque than a 55t?

Thanks. I think I'll hold out for your next run of 10t pullers. I don't want to give up too much run time....Of course, then I'll be thinking "gee, if only it were a little faster" Besides, I'm really curious to see what your new 10t will look like. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Again.

Get ready for a wait. It could be months before I can get the factory to make armatures, and then you will have to buy a can too. The redesign is taking even longer, and so far multiple designs have fallen through for factory or production reasons.

I'm assuming you're talking about a long wait for the current 10t cobalts. Any alternate suggestions, given what I'm looking for?

You could get a 25t 540 Handwound. It would load down a bit more than the Cobalt Puller so it wouldn't spin quite as fast under load. I could also get a 30t wound up if that was too fast for you.

Cool, I'll give it some thought. I've been eyeballing those. Thanks!

Best guess, yes. I will put more up for sale here in the next few days since the motors are on the way already.

hey JRH, I was curious if a 10T puller could be ran on a Novak crawler ESC ??? The rooster crawler has a 27T limit. If it can't, Whats another ESC that has a drag brake at neutral ??

It would work fine on the Novak RC.
