Hello all. So just gt my son a granite mega. Already fried the first motor (kinda disappointing with only 10 run on it). However tower s sending me a new motor to replace it. Also bought the aluminum heat sink for it as I have purchased a 7 cell 4200 mah battery so he can drive it for more than 10 mins on the sad stock battery. Also have installed front and rear T-Bone racing bumpers for protection from 5 year old bashing. LOVE TBR by the way. Great customer service and parts. So my hope is that the brushed motor will hold up now. I plan on "breaking it in" as I have read about to help with longevity and efficiency. I would like to continue with small upgrades on his truck mainly for reliability and strength as it is plenty fast enough for my son right now. I do fear the brushed motor not lasting long since the first failed so quickly. Could I get some advice on upgrades to go for next? I bought the granite because it seems very durable for him to bash around and have fun with while I drive my stampede bit there is definitely a quality difference. I do like his Arrma tho and he does love it so that's all that matters. So. What's next? Is there a better brushed motor I need to look at if the stock one does not hold out again? Do I just buy an extra one and keep warrantying it out if it doesn't last long? He is very disappointed he has to wait a week to fix a truck that is less than a month old that he worked so hard to earn the money to buy himself. Is brushless a more reliable set up? And If so what would be the best cost effective reliable set up? I want it to be run able in the grass and dirt off roading as the trucks were intended not crazy on the speed. The brushed set up is about fast enough as is. Thanks for any advice.
