    think i just blew motor?

    hey guys i got a rustler last night from this guy for 200 with all kinds of upgrades, well i had the velineon in my slash 4x4 and blew it in like a week and i guess i just did the same thing in this thing, i was running it and it just shut off motor is really hard to turn now. all i have is 3 cells and the motor did not even feel that hot.

    how can i tell if the esc is still good and what is a better motor and i can still use the esc?

    If your blowing motor sounds like your over gearing it , Temp gun is a must .

    That's fairly low gearing if it was in your Rustler and you shouldn't break the rotor due to the gearing.

    You have to buy a 2-pole motor to use the velineon esc which will limit your choices. I'd go with another velineon motor. I'm not sure what you're doing to them but that's never happened with one of mine. Check for binding in your drivetrain.
