No that is NOT normal, your 'Pede has become possesed by the devil and must be cast into the river! J/K...

I dont know, never have cleaned a motor (brushless). Now is this a brushed motor? If so, then yeah it might happen since brushed motors get grungy after a while.

Grungy.... and no, If the motor is grungy (dirty) then its slow, also the comm and brushes can get dirty too... Clean those off and "poof" its "faster". Not rocket science here!

By cleaning out the gunk you reduced it's resistance to turn, by using electrical cleaner on the inside you reduced it's electrical resistance. By doing both you reduced motor temps, doing this allows it to use more of it's original power. The more electrical resistance in the motor the more heat and energy it consumes. By freeing the motor up this energy is now applied to rotational forces, making it seem faster and more powerful. Take some white lithium grease and give the bushings a good coating then spin the motor up forwards and backward. I suggest CRC Electrical Contact Cleaner. It will eat the corrosion off the copper and help clean the dirt out of the motor. Do this several times if you havent cleaned it in a while.

The "sound" you described before might be some dirt/grundge that was freed up or your bearings. Make sure you put a drop of oil on both bearings on the motor after a cleaning.

I'm still stuck on the growing teeth thing.

Yeahh sry about that part...I still don't get though how i loss tons of torque and got an increase in speed with the same pinion and spur..O.O I think i changed the timing on the motor by mistake.
