Once they reach .270 it's time to toss 'em.

I was wondering, How long do motors last if all neccessary maintenance are carried out after every race outing? How many packs of batteries? 3months, 1year or more?

Given the many advice found on this forum, like spring tension setting, gearing, changing of the brushes, hood alignment etc. Just how long will a motor last?

If by following the advice in the postings here, wont all this reduce the life of the comm faster? Do you guys buy motors regularly?

Just wondering.....

there is no set time, it depends on the brushes used, the gearing being spot on all the time, how often the comm is skimmed to keep the performance up, how you drive and how much of a current you put through the motor (current limiter esc's).

All of these can determine how long a motor will last.

I am keen to see how my p2k2pro will be when its copper is just about to peel off though,should be demonly quick!!! ... knowing my luck that would be 4.5 minutes into the A when i'm doing the best i've done all season

Some people will skim their motor after every run,some will let it get black before they get it looked at,others dont even bother and wonder why its stopped working

It all depends how serious you want to go.
