the motor on my slash just started to have a very high pitch squeak to it today. Washed it off last night and when i took it out today it had the squeak. Yesterday i was running it through water and mud but it has never done this before. I have cleaned the motor and re oiled it and it just got worse. It also seemed like it didnt go as fast and it hesitated some times. Any help would be great.
My last 2 Stock Slash motors have done this a little WD40 fixed it for me. But its is only a matter of time b4 it will go for good. Like I was told these are "throw away motors" and do not last forever.
my last motor lasted two months but i was surprised because i ran it every day through snow and salt. The end bell was TOTALLY corroded. But i oiled it every time and cleaned it every five or six times i ran it. So i think it had a good life!
I would just buy a new one like JOB said I picked mine up off eBay for 12 shipped I think just look and you can find a take out some one is selling for a good price just make sure that its new and not used you dont want to be in the same boat you are now with a worn out motor.
Keep it cleaned and well oiled from the start and it will give you a lot longer service life.
