    I not sure cjroy, my old pede had the 550 in it mine was fine on it. Might be where you running it like thru tall grass will heat them up pretty quick and constant speed runs I heard does it too so might be a heating issue with them not sure though sure someone else on here can correct me if I am wrong.

    thats a crock.

    run my titan 12t in a 10th scale 2wd buggy on dirt oval and run wot for 4 minutes strait.

    titans are hit and miss, all you can do is break them in and keep them clean.

    just go brushless. Some more expensive but realy worth it. You get so much more power and I`m running my 380 velineon for a year now and only replaced the ball bearings. And beleave me I m not that friendly to my motor. I think i completely submerged it for about 10 times and never cleaned it yet.... So that will solve those problems. Be carefull on the throttle cause your rear diff is not that strong and can stripp pretty easy when doing a lot of wheelies on hard surfaces......
