I am not sure how many pages back but there are some pictures explaining the "nipple' issue to see if you are being affected by it.

Another thing to check but I haven't seen on the motors I had is make sure your bearings are fully seated down. I saw another brand motor have its bearings not fully seated from the factory, was causing binding and heating up.

I would also say drop your timing as well.

One of our club members was looking for a new 17.5 turn motor and I suggested the Surpass V4S. We dialled in his B6.1 about two weeks ago without a motor analyzer, because 17.5 off-road is just for hobby drivers in Germany, and ended up with approx. 47 end bell timing and 72/35 gearing. He had a waterfall mounted fan in his car, but it would not have been necessary. There is so much more in this little gem!
Fast forward to last weekend: Another club member struggled with his modified Cougar KC in the wet last weekend, borrowed the 17.5 powered Associated, and improved his lap times a lot. It seemed that the B6.1 did not loose a lot of speed compared to the mod cars and was faster than some of them, although the driver had not even pulled the trigger completely as it was a borrowed car... Bottom line: The rain racer bought a B6.1, one or two others ordered the Surpass motor, and I will order one or two of them later today. It is such a bargain!

This is the part you need to shave at least 1mm off

Hi all! I ordered my second 8.5T V4S motor for modified class from Aliexpress but recently realized that I received 8.5T V4S for drift spec, so... buyer protection is gone... It comes with C51115 rotor instead of the typical C53125. What is the difference between these two rotors?
