    Exclamation scandal !!! (like never seen before) !!!

    What a ripoff !!! i was working on my HPI firebolt and i was just gently picking it up by the wires, when they just snaped RIGHT OFF !!!

    What a ripoff !!! i had gone to my hobbyshop to buy brshed motor cleanner, and it was 15$ !!! i then went to another hobby shop, and their motor cleaner was only 7$ !!!

    I WILL NEVER GO HPI AGAIN !!!

    I think that's just some bad luck, those HPI motors are pretty good.

    Was the motor hot when you picked it up? Maybe the solder was a little warm and weak.
