Send them back to orion, orion will replaces them, send an email to Joe Pillars, they have great customer service. Low turn mods have this problem sometimes, because they spin so fast, same for checkpoint, trinity, etc. I have a DC 7x1 also throw a wire, Curtis just sent me a new one.

I Have had good experiences with Team Checkpoint Motors. They run out well, maintenance is minimum and durability has been great.

Over the last year we have done extensive research and testing on the new Cobalt II motor. The new motors are the fastest motors I have ever ran. I am not just saying that becasue I race for Trinity. I let a couple local drivers here in Nor Cal try out a couple of my motors before they were available and they also said the same thing....that the motors were the fastest, yet had an excellent power band and drivability feel. The difference between the Cobalt and Cobalt II are durability (7 and 8 turns come with a "hat" which keep these low wind motors together). Also, the overal feel of the motor, top end, mid-range, and bottom end have all changed for the better.

And best of all....the durability of the motor and brush combo. With the low winds we are able to run the motor multiple runs with out changing the brushes, cutting down on cost of Mod racing.

Hope this helps you choose!

MF
