Default Need some help

Hey I just installed a new motor into my XTM X-C. For some reason when i go it goes backwards only. It doesnt go forward. I am wondering why is it doing this? Did i install the motor wrong or what? Because it only goes in reverse.


Another question is.
How do you guys get your solder to stay onto the motor because my solder keeps breaking off only he red does. And i re solder it alot of times and it just falls off.

you probably soldered the wires backwards, meaning you soldered the positive where the negative should go and vice versa. as far as the solder falling off....you need to use flux and also your iron may not be heating up enough. what type of iron are you using? i personally use a hakko and it is excellent i have zero problems.

But if i have the Postive were the Negtive suppose to be. I thought the motor will not even work? I think i have them in the correct place but i will swap them out and see. I am using a 30wat solder iron i think. And i am using some Pc solder. I think its the solder i am using thats maken it keep poping off.
