Default Thrown wire in motor.

O kay. I ran one of those Epic Binary stock motors and overgeared it. It threw a wind and smoked a little. Does it go to the garbage can, or is there something I can do to salvage it? I'm hoping for a miracle, but my guess is that it is to the garbage can.

WELL if you havent melted the the coating off the can ,and the magnets are still ok ,, youll be able to use the can .. youll have to get a new ARM .. and who knows youll at least have a good practice motor....(ive burnt alot of motors ) so i know what im talking about ..hehe

You guessed it in my experience even if you dont break a winding, but just smoke a motor even a little(burn off some epoxy inside) they feel kinda flat when you run them.....kinda like the bianary stock did to begin with

In my experience with thrown winds, the magnet takes some damage as well, I usually just can the motor...

Thanks. That's what I thought. It was a new motor. I usually run a pro monster and thought I'd just try something different since I've heard they're legal now. First time out and its trashed.

It definately sucks, I've never thrown a wind in a stock motor, just a couple of my faster mod motors.

Trinity has this problem every time they release a new motor. I had 2 monsters de-laminate on me when they first came out. Haven't had enough of the Binaries to really get into trouble.

In time they'll fix all the issues and they will be good motors again.

Binary legal now? thats news to me! Did ROAR cave in? Might as well throw out the rule book. Heck, I'd love to put bearings in stock motors!

The binary is NOT legal and it won't ever be in 2004....I think they will cave on allowing 4 mag stockers, but I don't see them giving into epoxy balanced arms.

The newest ROAR rules add exceptions for the *Modified* Binary 2 motors, not to be confused with the stock Binaries. That might be where you (whoever it was that posted that) read it.

Actually, I've never thrown a wind on any EPIC motor...

I have seen many a racer check & test their stock motor`s by direct power from a battery pack ,spining the motor up to max rpm`s.....


A big No -no> cus it can loosen up the com wires spinning at such high rpm`s.

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.
