Gabe is the best! Fast shipping great product and his customer service is without compare!
I was torn between the following options for my Class 1 build: TGH-FMM Creeper T, Vanquish VFD, and the SSD Aluminum Case SCX10 trans. My main concerns were performance, reliability, and scale points. My opinions may be unpopular, but this is what I came up with.
Vanquish VFD -
Pros: reliable (it's Vanquish), low CG motor mount and overdrive.
Cons: no divorced t-case, molded plastic (more of a preference).
Pros: Aluminum case (scale looks)
Cons: very high CG motor mount, no divorced t-case.
The Creeper T checked all boxes.
1) Performance- 30% overdrive, FMM weight bias and low CG.
2) Reliable- CNC Machined aluminum, hardened gears, incredibly smooth & quiet, with minimal parts.
3) Scale points
a) Forward motor mount
b) Can still be used with lay down servo mount (more scale points)
c) Divorced transfer case (more scale points)
All three options are relatively similar in price, the Creeper T costs the most, but is WELL worth the price tag. Machining and build quality is top notch, reliability is unmatched, and performance is better than expected. I believe the Creeper T also offers the most mounting and gearing/configuration options out of the three. Did mention how smooth and quiet it operates? Customer service is like nothing I've ever experienced. Gabe is always there for his customers!
TGH makes great products. The transfer case is super light. The forward motor mount is made well. Customer service is great. My problem is that GSPEED has a link for super shafty that is broken. The size of recommended shaft is 5mm too short. I ended up cutting a wild boar shaft.
I can’t wait to install my new parts just gota find time so many projects going on at once LOL
Is it possible to have a product too good? The FMM in my V3 build makes the most difficult climbs seem like "a day at the beach"; or maybe a day on the rocks? Either way it's a MUST HAVE for the hobbyist that wants the ultimate rig. GSpeed & TGH have certainly come up with a winning combo and I love all their products!
