If you can't fix it with a hammer, then you have an electrical problem.

Funny how I have yet to buy parts for my $85 car...and it has easily 8,000
(no joke!) laps on it.

What type of brushes you running? If they are hard brushes it will eat the comm up quickly. Check your brush springs too, if they are to to strong you will eat the comm up. Try bending them slightly to reduce a lil pressure on the brushes. Use a different set of brushes and see how it goes.
