i was just drivin my stampede around today,and i noticed it started running sluggish and then i saw smoke coming from the motor and it wouldnt go. the motor really stinks. it was all runnig nice and cool so im not sure what went wrong? it wouldnt even pull wheelies while going in reverse? time for a new motor,atleast its not brushless.
since i have no money,i cant buy a new motor, i looked through my garage and found an old drill that i found in a free bin at a garage sale so i took the motor out,pried the pinion off with a hammer and a vise grip. then the motor dropped right into the mount perfectly. i hooked it up and now it flips its self just hittin the gas! the old motor wouldnt even do a wheelie! everything stays very cool.awesome free mod 4 me!
Kewl. Any pics? A lot of crawler guys use old drill motors, especially the Summit ones.
