Hello,

I have never experienced any bad smell from my V2's, they actually smell good, LOL!!

Maybe it's something in your car that smell's, belt rubbing against a cover, bad bearings, pinion touching the motor plate etc.

Yeh, I agree. With my Peak Vantage 10x1 I've had no such problem and like Eirik says, the car actually smells kinda good. Like.... not "Queer Eye" good but a refined smell!!! Maybe Orion/Peak make the motors smell good to feel fast, because they do both to me!
