Default trinity D6

I guess the only stupid question is the one not asked...here goes...D6, clean armature, new brushes, but I have to spin the thing now to get it going. All sorts of RPMs at different timing, but I still have to spin the armature most of the time to get the damn thing going. What have I missed or overlooked? Even tried shimming the arm in the can in different places, same result. Any help or constructive suggestions would be appreciated.

check the brush hoods and brushes. you have a hung brush problem. It should easily slide in the hood...

The com has been cut, sounds like the brushes in the hood is the place to look. Thanks...

I have seen that alot on the D5 , D6 motors. Most common cause i guess would be a sticky brush hood. Best solution is to get a orion V2 based motor or a checkpoint the will serve you much better and longer in offroad.

Look very closely at the solder tabs on the com and check for a cold solder joint. It happens from time to time.
