I have a vxl system in my slash and all of a sudden my motor stops rolling like completely no movement at all so I'm thinking bearings must have blown. So I tear down and get the end cap off and get to the rotor. It won't move and even hitting it with a hammer it wouldn't move...until the end of the magnet breaks loose and the rotor slides out revealing the two halves of the magnet. Ugh what can I do I already sent traxxas an email about this. This should not have happened it is an almost new motor that has around 10 packs run through it. Im thinking about doing the power up program with the xl5 system I have and putting the motor in my slash and the esc in my pede. What other motors can the vxl3s run effectively?
Thanks guys for the help,

Don't go to the xl5 system, because is just worse than the vxl system (sorry traxxas )
You can buy a new rotor for the motor: http://buy.traxxas.com/product_info....v1gc3rd822o4q2
*And remember clean ALL the fragments inside of the motor
I have seen a fair amount of rotor issue lately, my magnet sliding off being one. Wonder why...
