You should probably try a 25 to 26 rollout, I gear my D6 8X2 at 23.5 to 24.5 and it seems alright.

Im seriously hoping its not too bad. The wires inside werent discolored or melted or anything. Think a new cut and new brushes would maybe fix this? And Ill check about any seized bearings. So would a rollout of 25 be best next time I try to run this kind of motor? What kind of rollout for a stock motor?

Just out of curiousity...you have the schottky diode on your motor? i have the same esc and it doesnt have an internal one......i dont know for sure but i have heard that it can mess up your esc and possibly your motor.

If it did over heat it definitely wasn't from over gearing but could have been from under gearing.
I gear my 4.5 around 20 to 19.
For a stock motor like a monster a 32 to 34 rollout would be a good starting point.
What timing were you running?

The timing was set to 25. That what it was when I bought it from the shop. Im looking over it again and I think it might be a brush problem. The bottom of one of them has a bit of coloration.
