    Sounds like the brushes are worn out. Some Titans run a long time and others have a very short life. I had one that only lasted 2 hrs! It is possible you have some sort of contamination in the motor. Most likely its just wore out.

    They are not rebuildable so you need to get a new one. Time for a new one or better yet upgrade to a brushess system

    Yeah brushes are definitely worn out, if you want to stay with a brushed motor look for a different motor than the titan. Tbey dont last very long

    Two months hard running,you got a good titan.
    And you oiled the bushings,smart.
    Did you take time to break it in?

    He speaks the truth. All the Titan I have, run.
    One has worked for 2 years with no oiling whatsoever
    My other is 2 weeks old and I think it's dying but idk
