At the last Mendip meeting, I was finding that even the 7.5 was kicking out way too much power for a 2wd to stay controllable in wet or greasy conditions. So, I’ve scaled it back somewhat and got myself a new 10.5t Surpass Rocket V5R.
I’m a big fan of the Surpass motors. The are very competitively priced, only £55 for this unit. Thay have rally strong magnets, they seem very solidly engineered. They come in a really good reusable tough plastic case. A flat bonded sensor cable is included. And there are high and low mounted sensor ports built in.
