Any idea on the lead time to get the 10T puller back in stock, or should I just run a 7T for now?

JohnRobHolmes 01-20-2008 05:04 PM

You should probably just get the 7t for now. I was hoping to have them in stock within two weeks, but if I do that I won't be able to pay the bills until I sell off some inventory.

Your PM's are full...I need to talk to ya...;-)

ACK!!!

Went to order up a 5t motor today, and they're OUT OF STOCK!!!!!!!!!!!

:( :( :(

I know this is a long shot, but any chance we'll be seeing these in the near future again?

JohnRobHolmes 01-28-2008 07:58 PM

You will be seeing them, but I need to sell more sidewinders to get cash back. Lots of inventory, no cash to buy more right now!

cyberhog05 01-28-2008 08:09 PM

As far as the 5T w/ MM, BEC, and Spektrum on 6 cell elites its a no go. It will run normal for 5 mins but after that.... The amp draw of the motor is to much and it is kicking my receiver into fail safe. Atleast that is what we figured out at Unimogers at the shop day. If im missing something JRH let me know. Im gonna tear my 6 cell packs apart and make an 8 cell to see if this helps. If not I guess its time for lipo.

Now that seems odd...........and fairly disheartening since I was planning on running a 5T off a 6 cell pack (GP3300 or Elite 4500).

Hmmmmm...........maybe I should just drop a 4600KV Sidewinder into my Kyosho Blizzard! That should be good for a few giggles.......LOL. Actually, I would consider it, except I'm almost positive the ESC wouldn't fit under the body shell.

Im using a split 6 cell elite1500's. You should be fine I would assume

Ahhh, that makes more sense...........

JohnRobHolmes 01-28-2008 08:56 PM

Cyberhog,

I replied to your email too. My guess is that the cells may be bad, but more voltage won't hurt any. If they are new, then the motor is in fact too much for the cells.

cyberhog05 01-28-2008 08:59 PM

Are you talking about the email from slobin3d? I havnt heard from him yet. It must be that the cells are much to small. I have 2 brand new packs and they both do the same thing. I am only getting 15 min run times also. Light on the throttle.

cyberhog05 01-28-2008 11:19 PM

so do you think I should bother trying 8 cells or just get into lipo? I put a axiom v10 in and it sucks compared to the cobalt. I knew it wouldnt be near as good but my god! Its like going from a geo 4cyl to a blowin doge charger! I cant deal with a loss like that!

Anybody who is thinking about getting one of the cobalts....Dont hesitate. you see one for sale BUY IT!

JohnRobHolmes 01-28-2008 11:25 PM

8 cells will give a better voltage, but you will still be beating on the cells pretty hard. A lipo would be good, you will hold a better average voltage. How much space do you have to work with?

cyberhog05 01-28-2008 11:28 PM

pretty much just have my front axle to work with

JohnRobHolmes 01-28-2008 11:29 PM

See if this is too big:

I have some better cells on the way too. Lower mah, same size, better burst.

cyberhog05 01-28-2008 11:35 PM

that would be pushing it! I am going to have to make a new servo bracket and get my servo moved over to accomidate a lipo. Ill make one tonight and see what exact room I will have. I think for the sake of my mental stability I might as well go the lipo route. I cant find a way to get around it. I have to run the cobalt now that I have seen it run. And it wasnt to its full potential. Thats the great part. Thanks Mr. Holmes

JohnRobHolmes 01-28-2008 11:38 PM

You could also try putting two of your packs in parallel to see if it helps, just as a test.

cyberhog05 01-28-2008 11:41 PM

Ahhh make it 12 cell! I am not by any means good with electronics. running it parallel do I just put the two red together and the two blacks together. Basically connect the leads?

JohnRobHolmes 01-28-2008 11:44 PM

Yep, blacks with blacks, red with red. It will be 6 cells voltage, but twice the amperage available. Runtime may not be double since the motor may take more amperage.

cyberhog05 01-28-2008 11:45 PM

I will give it a shot! thanks again"thumbsup"
