What seems to be a good indicator that your BL motor bearings have gone bad besides falling apart?

A gritty feeling in the bearing is the first indicator I look at. You have to take the motor apart to tell though. Most bearings will make a whining noise when spun over fast if they are going bad.

Hey EA, are the G-force setup wheels threaded, or do they still require a nut? Sorry if this question has already been asked.

I have just installed my VX3. The wire connecting the ESC and receiver, is it normal that it is quite loose? The esc end is very loose and I cannot push the connector all the way down like the power switch connector

Thank you

It fits in the housing very tight. It will go in there. Make sure you have both connectors turned the correct direction as well. The openings on one side of the connector both go the same direction on both connectors. Its made to fit tight so they cant come out in a crash.

I think I installed it in correct direction coz the esc turned on no problem and I was able to calibrate it with my radio, I just use some force to push it in?

New GForce motor analyzers are in stock and up on the site now. These go up to 70 degrees of timing now.

Eric, could you post your setup with the TT chassis that you have been running?

Thanks a lot.

It's posted on the xray forums. Just search for the t4'15 and it's just down the list a half dozen setups or so.
