I hate to say it you're gonna have to move the electronics outward Moving the motor makes a big difference, have you tried that?
Moved the motor outwards 3mm today. Yeah that helped a lot. Removed 30g of weight. Now to test on the track this weekend

How does the ID of the stator look?
The Rotor would work, but probably not balanced and could be slightly weaker if it got overheated.
Look at the wires to, make sure they aren't nicked.

I cleaned it with motor spray. Still some metal filings clinging to the rotor. Put it on the motorlyser and it doesn't even move . Sadly I think it's done.

That sucks...
If you want to send it back we can take a look at it and see if it's salvageable.

I went back a few pages but couldn't find anything. Is anyone replacing the cap screws with aluminum or non-magnetic versions? If so, where are you getting them from?

What version motor are you running?

With the V2, no not many are changing those fasteners.

With previuos version motors, yes.

The flat head fasteners that adjust timing can be changed in the V2 to optimise the hall sensors.

Yeah I have the 1 v2.0. Why aren't people changing them out for non-magnetics?

the v2 stator design has much more rpm then the v1. No need for the nonmagnetic fasteners.

So I had great luck with pushing the motor out and electronics out when using the 8200mah battery. Only issue with team Scream batterys is that the sticker is not laminated. So when you tape the battery in the sticker rips up. Sucks because now my two day old batterys look like there two years old.

I picked up a bag of SS 2.5x10 screws here;

https://www.ebay.com/itm/M2-5-304-Stainless-Steel-Allen-Hex-Socket-Countersunk-Flat-Head-Machine-Screw-UE/332458730437?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=541 514917432&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
