Did you ever change the brushes on that puppy?Burned out my Reedy Radon 3000 was a decent motor only problem was that it ran really hot one time it was smoking a bit probaly going to upgrade to a Brushless Motor setup since im getting tired of brushed
I wish it was any different, but almost all stock brushed RTR motor are of poor (cheap) quality.What a great way to rid the world of brushed junk!
Agreed, they are cheap. From the perspective of the manufacturers, these are entry level products, with low prices to entice those who have been teetering on jumping into this madness. Look at the price jump between a Traxxas Rustler brushed to brushless for example.I wish it was any different, but almost all stock brushed RTR motor are of poor (cheap) quality.
And to upgrade a brushed motor to one, which is more durable and with more power is concerning the motor often more expensive than a brushless motor. However you need to upgrade to a brushless ESC's as well, which is the most expensive part.
Once I replaced the stock motor with a Kyosho bruhed truck motor with neodymium magnets, the fun started.
But no comparison with a brushless system. Since that is in the Fury, it is really flying like my Mojave BLX
You're still back to the price point issue, a brushed system, their cost is prob $40, brushless is $100.Still it irritates me that all the brands walk away with a poor motor.
The risk is that newbie buyers will stop with the hobby because failure comes so quickly.
There will be a time soon I think, where the brushed motor will not be for sale anymore.
"Mild" brushless systems like 2-pole 2700kV 540 cans will replace them.
I'm so glad it worked out for you Chad!I bought the mega raider and ran 2s and burned the ESC and the motor in just couple months, but im soo glad i did because thanks to steve it is running close to 50mph , i need a wheelie bar!
