We tried endurance racing with sport tuned (black can?) motors and experienced similar issues. I think the only brushed motors that can stand up to the abuse of 30 minute mains are probably the 'silver' can motors that come with Tamiya kits.

We ran them for 30 minute mains with no problems.

I ran a 27t monster stock motor in a 1 1/2 hour enduro with no problems .. didnt have to change brushes or anything until after the race ... com looked very good .. just make sure your gearing is right . and have fun ..

Hey Guys I was wondering how the Orion Method R motors compare to the Trinity Chromium 16 motors.

I can get either for under $25, and am looking for a better motor than my Trinity Co27

Thanks!

Morespeed, I am looking at Tower hobbies for these motors. I am sure they'll be a step up from the sports tuned, but I was wondering what other people on this forum thought of them first.

hmmm....??? maybe you guys can try increasing drive frequency settings on the esc,,, try 12 - 18 range,,, pretty sure your motors will run so much cooler and will last you a really long time.

I also ran an enduro with a monster stock, about 4 1/2 hours, well over 1000 laps of continual running. Motor came up to temp and stayed there, but never over heated since we had it geared right. We used 4499 brushes, and they still had serrations afterward.

One issue I think is to make those Tamiya motors move the car at a reasonable speed they need to be massively over geared. Try a real motor and your problem will go away.
