Velineon 3500 Failures - How common are they in this model?
I've been running my Stampede 4x4 on 3S lipo and stock 11/54 gearing since I've owned it and recently had a motor failure during the last bashing session; the magnet detached from the motor shaft and spun freely.
I'm planning to replace it with another 3500, but I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing similar failures? I don't want to continue to replace the 3500 motors if they're not up to the task of powering the 4x4 Stampede.
