Just a short clip towards the end of my battery. It was nice out, so I decided to torture test it since rebuilding the front end...lol. Found the limits for how deep of water it'll go through. About 4-5 inches is too much. After letting it sit for a few minutes it was back to the torture.

Considering what my driveway looks like, it's hard to keep them clean... Lol

People clean these things?? I kid, I kid...

Rinse it off with the sprayer in the sink.
Disassemble to get the bearings out, hit them with brake cleaner in a bearing blaster, re-oil them with 3 in 1 oil, reassemble. Rinse the motor with electric motor cleaner, relube the bushings or bearings as needed.

Haha! Well, I gotta admit, they don't see that every time... Sometimes with the kid's Stampedes, it's easier just to wait for failure/breakage...lol

OK, so two of my kids and I got some play time in this afternoon... This was the result...

I think the motor is about done for now after 8-10 runs with a Lipo and my abuse... It only made this sound intermittently, but it did it several times.

Time for clean up and tear down... Have fun, y'all!!

Hi

Sound like you need to oil the bearings if it has bearing, and if it has bushings its toast. That's what the fan motor on my S10 pickup sounds like.
