I got my replacement 25.5T motor last week. Relatively quick turnaround time.

My friend still has not received return instructions for his certified 21.5T. I think they will work on those later.

Be careful. You might get jumped on for not reading every word of the thread.

Let’s not get this thread closed like the other Slot Machine thread. I find it useful enough to know how the exchange program is going. Keeps me vigilant on checking my spam before deleting everything.

Got my replacement motor today. Sent in my motor later than I intended but the turn around was very quick.

UPDATE: Trinity had 3 tiers of motors when they were a stand alone company. Standard, Team Spec, and Certified. They already stated that Certified motors would take time and be replaced last. I’m cool with that as the motor I sent in was a Team Spec with an excellent rotor. What I received today was the brushless motor equivalent to the old GM Purple Bull or Reedy Firehawk…..lol. I guess I should be happy that Horizon even replaced the motor to begin with. The rotor is far below every motor currently out. Its the same part number they’ve always had but this particular one is a lower 5% IMO. Possibly great in a 12th scale or F1 but not a sedan. This is my opinion and others may have better luck with theirs. Just reporting through the eyes of STLNLST…….good day folks :-)

Makes me wonder if I should even bother sending mine in whenever I get the email. Trade paper weights for paper weights?

Could always resell it, recoup a little money.

Just got my email to send in non-certified motors (2 to send, 1 certified still waiting on).

I put in my form on 11/11/23.

Got my email to send in my non certified motors. What are people doing with the "Team" versions?

mine was a team motor but the rotor in the new motor was far from a team version. Would have been better off switching out rotors before I sent it in.

I'm hanging on to my Team/certified motor for the moment, just sending in the regular motors. I don't know what their plans are.

what's crazy is that i asked on a facebook group about the exchange and some dude said they were seeing rotors in the "high 1700's". either the dude has a whack meter or he's just a fanboi...
