At least 20 runs so far and going strong... on 2 lipos.

You should clarify what you mean by "run" because there is a big difference between racing (5-7 minutes at a time) vs. running until the battery dumps, which is harder on a motor.

I assume you are talking about use in a Slash.

Well over 30 runs easy and still going. Probably peaked in performance at about 15 or 20 runs. Is just a little softer now but still good enough to be competitive.

2 cell lipo. Sprayed it out and oiled about every 5 runs or so. Ran it in with a dremell for a while, but that's it.

No lipo cutoff so I probably never ran it more than 7 minutes at a time.

Died after 15 runs on a 7 cell nimh pack. Only ever used stock gearing, and cleaned out with motor spray every 2nd run. (bushings reoiled after EVERY run)

ran about 20 lipo packs through mine with regular maintenance done every 2 runs.The bushing on the pinion side wore out.So sad it was'nt a true 12 T,if it were I would have bought another especially if it had ball bearings.
