    Anyone seen this yet?



    Off my rustler vxl, did some small jumps and some wheelies.. Then she just slowed to a stop... Is there a replacement? Or any motor recommendations that work with the vxl ESC?

    Haha yea man it was all the glory of the 3s power!! What is this part called? I know in the brushed motors this was the armature, but obviously a brushless is swapped around..

    Thanks for the reply guys!

    Is that covered under warranty? Actually I don't think I can go that long without a bash so I might order the rebuild kit unless its a decent chunk of change..
