Default Sportwerks Starterbox

Just purchased a used starter box off the forums here and used it for like 10 minutes and it died. Im guessing its the motors, since ive tried recharging the stick packs and tried using a gel cell from an old starter box. Anyone know whats the best motors to replace the ones that come on the starter box??
Thanks.

Yes wild, after looking futher into it I noticed that the right tab had sunk into the plastic. Must get kinda hot in there for that plastic to just melt like that.
