Maybe a magnet has come loose on you? Open up the motor and see.

Did you lose a screw somewhere? If theres a screw inside the motor, that can jam it. The screws holding the motor into the car can also be either too long or too tight. I had a motor sieze up on me before because the crown actually detonated. When the crown failed, it expanded and dug a groove into the magnets before finally coming to a halt. I can't even explain how rare this is, and the only reason it happened in the first place is because it was a worn motor anyway, and I wanted to see what kind of effects I could get by drilling the armature. It was a stupid move, but for the several races I got out of it, it was fast as Hell!

HeY!!!


i'd also check the brushes, it may be hung brush, if it will go, then lock up on ya while driving it.... or else if it locks up on ya while it outa car then something is just jammed in it and you have to take it apart.... only other thing i could think of is that it may be bushing melted or seized up on ya...
well hope that helps a little bit...

Just re-attach the magnet with a little epoxy or JB Weld (the best)..

Make sure you get the magnet flush against the can if you do try and glue it again. Epoxy or JB weld. CA will not hold. You can try and get another can also. The black can epic motors tend to loose magnets due to the can coating not liking the glue they use. Also ask around. You may find someone at the track who has a worn out stock motor you can put your arm and endbell on the new can.

Default p2k2 pro

I am having a problem with my p2k2 pro and hanging brushes. The track is quite dusty and it just looks like dirt is jamming the + brush. It runs fine then just stops the brush is well and truly stuck there. Is there any way to prevent this from happening? Should I replace the brushes?

Thanks

wayne

Quick version:

Take apart the motor and spray out the can and the hoods thoroughly.

Skimm the comm, reshimm and put back together..

Install new brushes and make sure by holding the shunt that the brushes move in and out freely.. Run red and red - break in for 200seconds with a fan. Put green on neg. and break in for another 30 seconds.

Good to go..

Make sure the brush hood is not crushed. The epic cans run pure copper hoods for conductivity and they can be crushed in accidents. Make sure the top of the hood is straight. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to bend the hood back if necessary. The brush should move in and out of the hood freely. There is a small leaf spring in the top of the hood to make sure it is getting good contact but the brush should slide in the hood with minimal effort.
