GC,

I think you're safe for the time being... I think we just have too many different combinations to worry about aready without having combo's with the 1711's right now!

I haven't heard any talk of it at least

Have you tried a different motor at all?

If it's the old 13.5 with the bonded rotor there is a chance that the magnet might have been weakend due to heating/overgearing... if this is the case it can lead to problems like what you are describing.

I always recommend people upgrading to the sintered rotors for pretty much every application!

It looks fine, no burnt smell, is intact. And it has only had a 13.5 on it for the last couple of months.

Charlie,

Thanks again for your help at nats. The Charlie and Cha Lee show was worth the price of admission.

Hey Clint I know where babies come from. You see I have four of them, so apparently they come from my balls.

Branden,

Your best bet is to probably send it into us to have us take a look at things then!
