Default LRP TC Special 2 Motor slipping

Hi there,

Forgive me if I am repeating a question, but I have searched for a solution to the problem I'm having with no result

My motor's drive shaft seems to have come apart from the commutator assembly. The drive shaft can be pulled out of the motor housing. I investigated the issue after having a perfectly normal run when all of a sudden the motor seemed to be revving to maximum speed with little acceleration being reflected in the car.

Is the drive shaft within the motor meant to be, in fact, part of the commutator unit? (By commutator I mean the entire piece which fits inside the motor can.)

Does that make sense?
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

common problem with the LRP/Nosram motors.

You need a new rotor.

common with the x11s.. the new x12s look very promising in the rotor department

Can the issue be prevented in any way?

His motor isn't a X11 or X12, its a brushed.

Maybe if all is still strait you can green loctite the shaft in the bobine?
