so just took my slash 4x4 outside to go for a run
went to pull away and it wasnt moving but i could hear the motor spinning, i could see the pinion want moving so i assumed the grub screw had come loose
so i brought it back in to find that the magnet has detached from the motor shaft about 2 weeks ago my VXL ESC broke aswell, really not impressed by traxxas electronics
its only glued on, im not sure wether to try glueing it back or not
You've probably ran it to hot?
50 char sig is not enough!
ive kept an eye on the temperatures every run, never gone over 150*F and recently have been running a heatsink and fan which has kept it very cool
anyone know what kind of glue i should use to hold it back onto the shaft?
i need to get this running i've got a big meet this weekend
looks like mine did. heat is what made it come apart. dont think gluind will work. it has to be balanced for the rpm that it runs at. the small drops of glue on the top & bottom of the can are to balance it. you my friend need a new motor...Originally Posted by rcsammy
Hmm, it seems I may have the same problem with my motor
Thing is, I had mine geared down for low off-road (13p/56s) and it wasn't running hot, but I did have to brake really hard to avoid a cat and the wheels locked up, sending my truck flipping end over end
I guessing the hard stop probably caused the rotor to spin loose on the shaft
What kind of shape are the bearings in with these rotor breakage?
Turbo in the front, groceries in the back.
