What a ripoff !!! i was working on my HPI firebolt and i was just gently picking it up by the wires, when they just snaped RIGHT OFF !!!
What a ripoff !!! i had gone to my hobbyshop to buy brshed motor cleanner, and it was 15$ !!! i then went to another hobby shop, and their motor cleaner was only 7$ !!!
I WILL NEVER GO HPI AGAIN !!!
Sorry bud I can almost feel your RAGE with the 18 exclamation marks in your post!!!
I think that's just some bad luck, those HPI motors are pretty good.

Was the motor hot when you picked it up? Maybe the solder was a little warm and weak.
