Anyone else interested in getting the best crawling motor?

I know I'm getting one, and I think bigbird is getting one or two as well. Miller already has one and as you can see from his post they kick ass http://crawlcanada.com/forum/showthread.php?t=644 Crawls better than any motor I've seen and has some stupid fast wheel speed as wellhttp://members.shaw.ca/big_ern/images/36.gifhttp://members.shaw.ca/big_ern/images/36.gif
Checkout the jumps miller can pull off in the vids of his post:3gears:

Here's a couple more good posts about them:

I'm working on setting up a group buy for these with Holmes.

Here is Holmes' site on them: http://holmeshobbies.com/home.php?cat=17
Look up the Holmes Hobbies Cobalt Puller 10T 7T or 5T

Holmes says his 5T is more of a comp style motor and from some research bigbird did on it, they get quite hot after long use. Me & him are getting 7T's which is what miller got for his:cool: Holmes runs a 7T & 10T on his bashers & fun trails rigs and a 5T on his comp rig.


I'm unsure on what we will get for pricing on these as it's still in the works, but at the very least we'll be able to save on combined shipping for them all, but John Holmes said he could work us a deal on them for a group buy:cool:


Let me know if you are SERIOUSLY interested. Won't be able to get the group buy if we say we have 10 guys lined up to buy, but 3 people back out and we end up with just 7. I'm not sure how many we'll need to get the group buy deal, but I would guess 5 or 10http://members.shaw.ca/big_ern/images/dontknow.gif

Will do. Its still in the works and I just wanted to have some #s for next time I talk to him so I can hopefu;;y work a better deal.

Regular pricing is $79.99us and shipping to up here is a bit over $16us I think (plus border taxes and whatnot)

I'll post up the pricing when I know.

I'll take a 7T one and pay for the shipping out to Alberta, assuming you get a decent deal! Was going to order one anyways, so I'll take advantage of a group buy.

the motor is worth $80.00 all day, im guessing witha group buy, you might save $10.00
cause combined shipping has savings also. so if you want to save a small ammount of cash. add your name to the list. dont expect to save 15-20 bucks, cause im sure that wont happen.:)

It would only be worth it to me if we saved almost half.... I'll check back!


I like cool running equipment, I've heard of smoke leaving motors trying to crawl at lower turns. Hopefully this motor is different!

I can pretty much guarantee this won't go for half price. As Bigbird said, this motor is worth its full price of $80 and will sell for that all day long.

I'm just hoping for a savings of $10-15 as a combination of the cheaper price and splitting the combined shipping.

paying retail is for guys like you I gues, not me. (obviously not buy making this thread) I'll keep an eye though, and if you can save us $25.00 to $30.00 I'd be into this! Cheers.


PS: Why don't you tell him you have 10 people and get us a price... sounds easy enough no?

This is no different than how you swapped out the 22re in your toy for a 5m (or 7m? i forget).

It crawls as good or better than most motors and still has the power to give us a ton of wheel speed when you need to bump it up and over an obstacle

I'm not going to lie to him and say I have 10 guys to get a better deal then not be able to even get that deal when we don't have 10 guys lined up. I'd rather get a group buy for a real amount like 5,6,7 or so. It will be easier to work with him and bargain with real numbers that I can back up and say, "Yes, that sounds good. Here's $xxx for X motors" done.

Plus lying to try and get a better deal only makes me look worse when he finds out I can't follow through on the deal. And who knows, he might get put off by it and retract the offer of doing any group buy altogetherhttp://members.shaw.ca/big_ern/images/dontknow.gif

That's true. I've never done anything with sales, so i don't really know. Just trying to work it out the best for us all that I canhttp://members.shaw.ca/big_ern/images/cheers.gif

I'll be wanting one eventually, but the timings not right for me now. Unless it's like $65 shipped.

Ok, we have 8 people will you say we have 10 and I'll buy 2 if the price is right (so really you have 9). I want to break more parts just like Miller!!! Cheers man.

Big_Ern
02-20-2008, 11:05 PM
Yup, now that we've got 8, getting another 2 shouldn't be a huge issue if we can get a good deal on 10:cool:

Anyone else interested so we actually can make it a true 10?

I want to be like miller too:D


Are there any upgrades for the axle shafts or R&Ps?? Something like the equivalent to chromo shafts or longfields for 1:1 axles would be sweethttp://members.shaw.ca/big_ern/images/36.gifhttp://members.shaw.ca/big_ern/images/36.gif

there's an upgrade for the axial r&p. http://www.rcpcrawlers.com/product.php?productid=865&cat=29&page=1

as for axle shafts there isn't but there should be.

i think if ppl are serious about this motor they should upgrade to alumium knuckles and c-hubs from the start. oh better start finding bigger rodends as miller broke a couple of traxxas ones.. just my $.02

Awwwright, if 4mods gets the price he wants for two, I'll take one.

There's yer 10.

And JRH is a pretty nice fella, I hear. We should get a sweet deal cause he has 17 or so in stock now, so to re-order and just blow out and move stock is always favourable in the business world...

ok everyone, there is no group buy option, these motors sell so fast that john does not need to give us a discount. so if you want one, the 7t there is 15 left, and the 5t there is 17 left as for the 10t none so far, if you are really interested. and i mean to pay retial, then keep the repies coming. i have ordered 2 7t's and i will add anyones to my order, eirn and andrew are paying retail like me, so if you want one. pm me or andrew. and you can prepay me ill add them onto the order, and i will show an invoice to show what we all paid. i will take care of getting it accross the border. the motors will be 79.00 plus taxx 12% which i need to pay when crossing the border. so SERIOUS RETAIL BUYERS ONLY!!! THANKS

Big_Ern

he told me that he could give us 10% off on a purchase of 10 7T motors


I just learned that the supply of the 5t version has been cut short.
There is only 26 available in this run, and if the factory will do
another 5t run the price will be much higher. I may be able to discount
the 7t version 10% on a 10pc lot, but not the 5t.

But you're probably right, that it might not even happen or we'd have to wait for the next batch of motors to get them.


NO GROUP BUY


It'll be more effective for us all to just order our own. Besides 10% off is only $8 off and would probably mean we would have to wait for the next batch of motors whenever that is.

I'm doing what bigbird is and just ordering mine right now at full price

Sorry to get your hopes up guys, there's just too much demand for these motors for a group buy to work out.

I still think we should put up posts like this for specific vendors. We could all save a ton on shipping. Threads like.."Buying from rcp this week" You just paypal the cost to the buyer plus a few for shipping.
