I've got a Robitronic Dyno and the "pack test" actually finds good motors almost as well as the dyno does (go figure).

Stock motor`s do not have glue binding the com wire`s like mod motor`s. Thus ,they are real easy to unwrap at high rpm & toss a com wire.
At the least, EPIC's have varnish or thin epoxy on the windings to keep people from re-winding with less turns.

The Motors I've seen with thrown windings that had not been obviously overgeared, have been from foreign objects entering via the cooling vents.

I heard the Epic binary was legal for stock, but the person I heard that from might have got the info wrong for stock. Anyone else shed light on this?

Epic Binary stocks are NOT legal for Roar races, but some local tracks are allowing them for club races and even non-roar big races. The motor will NOT be legal any time in 2004. The Epic Binary mods are legal for roar racing though....

You might consider calling trinity and see if they will replace the arm....ya never know.

Later EddieO

I would send the motor in if I felt it was random or built wrong, but I overgeared it on accident by doing my math wrong and not really checking on where I should really start. The car kit's included pinion was way to big. I though kits would at least be close to where you need to be. I should send the motor to the car kit manufacturer (Yokomo CGM). Anyway the kit comes with a 30t pinion. I just went by trust (actually more like last hour of assembly at midnight, day before race). God, how many new RC drivers are going to do this with this kit? I have a decent amount of experience and I made a blind mistake and it cost me a motor.
