Holmes Hobbies TrailMaster Sport 550 Brushed Motor (27T)
Just dropped this in my TRX4 (2s lipo) and it does exactly what I wanted; noticeably more grunt than the stock unit while only giving up a little high end speed. Makes "scale" driving a lot more controllable. It also runs pretty quietly, after a short break in period.

Using it in the TRX4 with the 1080 ESC on 3S for a couple month now. Very good, cheap motor. Lots of power.
Will buy again!

Holmes Hobbies TrailMaster Sport 550 Brushed Motor (27T)
Excellent! Picked up a Bomber and didn't want to move to a lower RPM motor so I thought I would try the 27t 550 and couldn't be happier! I really like this motor paired with the WP1080, LOTS of torque at low speeds for crawling but the 27t RPM allows me to mob around on smoother stuff. It's a very good balance. I picked up a 45T for my Wraith too! (strictly crawling) The can is slightly longer, if you are looking to put this in a SCX10ii you might have to trim the battery holder. I haven't tried it just we noticed looking at the motor on my Honcho. If you are changing motors get the 550 you'll love the extra torque.

Amazing motor with loads of low end torque. I swapped this into my RedCat Gen8 and wow now the truck not only crawls with ease in a scale slow fashion without hesitation but also the start from a dead stop is very smooth and refined. Highly recommended motor!

the real big difference is the torque. When u give little gas the motor spin little gas. You dont need more gas compared stock motor because i think the internal rotor is bigger than stock motors. This means its very similar torque than brushless motor.
If u make more scaler and crawler on rocks this is the best option u can have on this planet. If you need more bashing and run in sand , snow large spaces get the 21 t thant has little more speed. 5 STARS

Installed this motor on my TRX4 Bronco and it does great. Lost a little speed but gained more torque and slow speed control. The motor did not stall on slow speed climbs. Great motor and can't beat the price.

I bought this motor at the beginning of last year for my axial scx10 ii honcho. Yeah I know it's not a super expensive motor but I don't drive my truck everyday, maybe once or twice a month with the stock ESC and 3s lipo. Today I went to go drive it and it was like im running it with zero drag brack when set at 100%. I can spin the output shaft almost completely freely with it plugged in. Long story short it still runs and climbs bet doesn't like to stop on hills anymore.

Vehicle-- RC4WD BEAST II...comes stock with 55T 540 motor. This vehicle is heavy.
I installed this motor and much better than OEM Motor. Smooth, impressive torque for the weight of this truck. Stock gearing. Real happy. 540 can just not enough.

Wow amazing crawler motor for a price that can t be beat. The motor is a torque motor. Speed is minimal but control is amazing. Used for my wife's Redcat gen8 v2 much better motor for beginners. Holmes hobbies motors are king. And AMAIN got it to me quick in time for the weekend crawl.
Thanks AMAIN
