I ran V3's for a year in stock touring car. Never had one fail. Did it get really hot any time? Bearing seizure? Sudden stoppage of the model?

It didn't happened to me, but I've seen it break from guy doing full throttle with no load on the car.
More racing and less typing!

No issued here with several motors from 17.5 to 8.5 that I've had for many years. Not saying it can't happen, especially if free revving a mod which is never a good idea.
