I have the same tires on hbx wheels weighted over 20g per wheel and I find the RC4WD motor to be much better???

Iíd guess 25% more torque. Enough for me to completely notice. Mine would hit a wall and freeze. Not anymore. Those big wheels just turn.

Is your mesh maybe too tight? Or maybe you expected more?

It was enough for me to be happy with its performance thatís for sure.

Sorry to hear that.

You've probably driven yours a lot more than I have mine. I've been modding mine more than driving it lol, so I'll defer to your experience with it. I'll give it some more wheel time, but as of now, I just didn't notice a difference, I was still able to stall the wheels what seemed fairly easily.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still gonna have fun with it for sure

Is the motor supposed to be cocked slightly? Mine is resting in the nut of the rear link. Also that motor plate reversed doesnít seem to allow the screws to tighten fully. Any suggestions?
