Hi all. I need some help/ideas/opinions. I cannot pull out the threads left in the motor even with a soldering iron (maybe not hot or large enough since I used a hardware type pointed soldering iron tip). Is there any other viable options?
I was also wonder if it was possible to replace this end with bullet connectors instead to prevent this from occurring again. If so, what size would I need?
I am new to the R/C hobby and this was a used unit for my little brother which after a couple months of bashing and breaking a lot of things (mostly because we keep bumping into each other accidentally, mine being an E-revo and all...), but this problem I could not find a remedy.
Thank you. Hope to hear from you all soon with recommendations
Edit: The other 2 wires are barely hanging on also, so I intend to remove them and replace/repair.
I believe you can solder the wires back in place. Remove the plastic cap off the end of the motor and your shouldn't be too hard of a job. That is how you connect the wires on a Novak motor.

Never seen that happen before... Are you stretching the wires to the esc or something?

Yeah you'll have to solder it back on. Sounds like your soldering iron isn't strong enough to handle the job properly.
