A magnet zapper runs $450 and upwards to around $700. If and when you become good enough to merit top end motors, the zappers for this job will be obsolete. The zappers are for brushed motors. A zapper, comm lathe, motors, brushes, dyno/motor checker, comm drops, and alignmrnt tools can cost upto $1000.

Brushless is taking, or pretty much has already taken over the motor wars. I probably wouldn't worry about zapping motors. Much less to run over the long run. You just need a Brushless motor and Brushless ESC. Cost around $250 new for both. Motors require minimal maintainance. If you ever need to replace the motor it cost around $75-$85 for a new one.

Hope this helps.

How often do you race or when was the last time you raced?

I think that the most important thing a pro has to do is a lots and lots of training! Look at this topic and calculate your consistency, if it's under ~0.4s in your best heat you can start considering buying some new "pro" gear, if it's way over - back to track

I wonder if they are able to re-zap rotors we use in brushless motors? they are known to go bad after they've been overheated, and with regular use...

I know that they make up slugs for the zapping machines for the can, so why wouldn't they be able to do this?

You can, just replace the rotor and you have just rezapped your brushless motor. it is my understanding that the rotor is the magnet.

i know what the pros do, they get their motors already zapped, and after a major race, *ring* *ring* calls up the sponsor, and over are 5 new motors for "testing". Zappers arent a need. The gear doesnt make you a pro, its practice. If you even need your can rezapped, just send it to EA or someone, and they will do it for 10 bucks.
