The Raptor 2 is really great stuff. I loved the great initial torque and the super organized internals. extra wide thane have me confidence to negotiate turns without fear of slippage.
The hubs are very powerful as you say, though the ride is noticeably more bumpy than my 75a abecs. Though this is to be expected.
It’s unfortunate the remote still has to be calibrated every time you turn it on. Not a major deal, but a bit out of place considering the refinement of the product.
Another thing that threw me off (except the raptor) was that the power “button” wasn’t really a button at all, but a flip switch. It was a bit misleading as i was trying to press where it was already switched to and it totally looks like a button given the waterproof cover.
Acceleration wise it definitely beat all the contenders out there including myself. I only wish there was a dual 6374 setup in low kv to go head to head. Unfortunately my motors was too high of a kv to keep up. Still glad I was able to hold my own in the speed department though.
Lastly, Moja and co went out for a night ride in SF, but unfortunately the fet or something on the switch blew on the pre production raptor 2, leaving it in always on position. He had to take off the enclosure lid and restart the receiver. He assured me this was fixed on the post production model however.
