    They took care of mine, but it was only 2 weeks old. I didn't even bother to ask about after the third motor went out (1 week later), because they're too easy to fry. If I run in any grass with 7 cell batteries, they're toast (even with it geared down to a 17t pinion). I'm switching my Revo to a brushless motor and my Maxx to the 775. Hopefully they'll work out better.

    Last week I ran my brushed eRevo through some grass next to a skate park construction site I've been frequenting. I saw a bunch of smoke coming from the car. After reading all the cooked 550 stories I fear the worst. Turns out all the dust from the site had coated the grass. My Revo was just chewin up the grass and freeing all the dust. Whew! 550's still going!
