Hey guys, while I was driving my Slash last week, my Titan thought it would throw a brush. Oh well. These motor are not known for being long lasting. Anyway, I was borred today, and I decided to take (tear) it apart. It was actually really clean inside, I didn't expect that... You can see it's a simple design, but looking at it makes me wonder. Why does a brushless motor cost SO much, if it's even more simple then a dumb brushed motor? Never mind that, here's the pictures.
I had to use a dremal to grind away the tiny little tabs holding it all together.
I was surprised there wasn't more rust inside.
Here you can see the brush that desided to self destruct.
Just though I'd share what I found! Enjoy!

The Titans are hit and miss. Sometime you get one that runs along time and others that go bad in a short time. I think the reason why Brushless Motors cost so much is because we all want them! lol Would be nice if you could replace the brushes
Also you get what you pay for. Spend a little Spend it Often or Spend More, take care of it and ENJOY it
Traxxas Slash all others are just Toys lol
You did exactly the same thing I did when the Titan died. This time, the curiosity killed the motor.
Keep the wires and the capacitors....Maybe you can use on an other brushed motor....Just my suggestion
Built Ford Tuff With Chevy Stuff.
Titanic - "IC" = Titan. Hmmm....they also said the titanic was unsinkable.
