sINCE THE gtb IS NOT being used at the moment I'll throw in the
twin force so I can run a single 6-cell pack instead of dual packs.

Actually the 7.5R might be enough motor for the twin force.

I just E-mailed Novak to be on the safe side but I have a video of a 3.5R
Twin Force that you people might like to see.

7.5r SHOULD BE FINE.

Novak just e-mailed me and said it would work just in the twin force.

Of course a heavier truck like an E-maxx it wouldnt be a good idea.

BMAG my clodbuster will smoke any electric 4wd monster you will ever own. A single 7.5 in a large twinforce is gonna be a pig. Your gonna have to gear down to keep temps reasonable

I have to run an 18 tooth with a stock spur, you cant gear down a
Twin Force. The spur is small with a big pinon

The spur is a XXX-NT spur gear.

No a clod cannot beat a Twin Force pal its too heavy.

I have a Bullhead so your question is answered............lmao

just great....I have to get an HV maxx then..........screw it I'll
try it myself and if it doesnt pick up speed then oh well....it's going in the
Blackfoot Xtreme then.

THE NOVAK E-MAIL I JUST GOT
Hello,



No, the GTB would be pretty slow running one pack in a Monster truck. Itís simply the wrong ESC for the application.

Bmag I can almost guarantee my clod weighs less than your twinforce. I know because I've raced both. Especially if the twin force has 2 battery packs. Here's my clod on a single pack:
