Default Motor magnets too strong?

I picked up a used set of Br00d modified revenge of the monster 27t motors for use in my usvta car. Compared to any of my other motors these have a really strong cogging effect so much so that i cant run a front one way because letting off the trigger causes the car to slide out. Is this normal or are these motors meant for something else?

this is on the motors themselves as the motors have been on three different cars and all three motors are the same
