Ye its weird; you'd expect it to die a fiery death
but it doesnt. And it isnt a top of the line motor; maybe thats whats saving it, the fact that Fantom assumed I'd abuse it. Most of the driving is pretty full on though, but i do take it easy every so often. Other than that, I do look after it, and maybe constant motor and driveline maintenance is what has kept this motor alive.
I'd love to race but I haven't the time (or the money!)
A 12 triple (of the same brand) has had its adhesive holding the magnets in melt, and i have had a very cheap battery pack lose its shrink wrap.
Quick question; constant braking heats up your ESC too doesnt it, as well as causing arcing and such on the comm? I suppose there'd be energy loss somewhere.
