i know they got lots of power, i ran one in my tmaxx, and it tossed maxx wheels side to side on the ground no problem. i had issues with it when i tryed to run two servos on a y connector , the tower pro and a hitec 645 mg and the tower pro glitched a lot, and i mean a lot, but on its own channel they are fine for what i have seen.

i have been running them in my clod crawler for a while. i run maxx sized mashers on it and they turn the tires ok. i stripped out a gear in one of them, and have had another just stop working.

i think they are a good bang for the buck, but i'll be buying something better next time around

I tried running a pair in my mbx5. they worked ok for about 2 races and then the servo wouldn't center itself for about 2-3 seconds after you released the function. They gliched like crazy and were very poor trying to center. They were strong in torque but have the cheapest motor on the planet so they are not worth getting even though I only paid $18 for both. I highly recommend not using them at all if you need accuracy and consistency.
