Nice setup here!

Also I saw you're running an Ezrun 9T motor!
As I'm planning to buy one of those I have few questions about it!

Is it reliable (considering how cheap it is). Ever experienced any problems with it?
I'm used to run 19T brushed motors because I feel its the best for me (I tested 15turn motors and find they're too powerfull for my test).
I've tested few BL motors and the way the power comes is not like on brushed motors (it comes more instantly), this is mainly why I've never switched to BL motors!
How is that one?

Hi Waider,

Thanks :up:

I have been runnin my 9t ezrun for about a year now and before that I was runnin a 13t ezrun for also a year.
Both of the BL motors i am very pleased with,but then again I never had a Novak or LRP.
The ezrun set commes with a program card that allows you to set your system up the way you want it to bee, like break force, initial break force and lots more in total 11 settings.
I think it is a very good deal!

i suggest getting a sensored bl system. it has a smoother throttle feel to them and has better low throttle IMO.

Nice setup mate, I always liked the yokomo bd masami

I agree with tokeyo about a sensored setup but with the ezrun or SP drift master (same thing) you cant go wrong for the price

Get rid of ur tensioner in the rear. You can use a NT1 Belt 59T. Perfect fit.
