These are actually pretty darn good motors for the price. I have had very good luck with them. Take these other negative reviews with a grain of salt. I've seen people burn up these motors with improper gearing. Then they blame the motor, the truck, Traxxas and God. These motors can last a while if you take care of them. Break them in according to the manual. After every race/practice day, clean them off and add a little bushing lube on each end. If they fill up with dirt and grime, blow t[More…]

I hate to contradict another review, but I have seen these run HARD for an entire racing season in a bone stock 2WD Slash and have zero problems. I have also used them in low priced RWD buggy along with an XL-5 Brushed ESC with no issues. When geared correctly it does heat up a bit but not so much that the motor would fry itself. Brushed motors naturally run hot and have a limited life compared to brushless due to their "brushes". Dollar for dollar this seems like the most powerful motor you can[More…]

Great motor, lasted for about 2 years. I have the Stampede and I drove it almost everyday. It does suck that it just died on me. I turned the car on and the steering worked but no throttle. As I pushed he accelerator, I could hear the noise of the motor ( beeping noise). I talked to traxxas, they said the motor. Over all, I'm very pleased with th motor.

i burnt out like 4 of these. i would run it 4 times and burn it on my emax is there any sugjestions to better motors?
jackson murkin - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Tuesday, July 03, 2012
This motor is very good i had the same one in my slash 2wd and i race it very hard i time a week and i have never burned out a motor and never had to do anything to except i had to sauter the wire back to the motor after a racer collision and after that it is still running i beleive it is traxxas 's best brushed motor to date
derek Cerulli - Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! Sunday, April 08, 2012
i had the motor in a slash and i treated it really bad, it ran about 1 to 2 months and it gave up more parts broke than this motor i didn't break it in ( which i didnt know how to) but it still ran really good
Trevor Cuthbert - Rating: 2 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Tuesday, April 05, 2011
Not a good buy for speed, not bad for torque. I have burned up 2 of them in a few months. I am running it in a rustler with a 23 tooth pinion and 86 tooth spur. This is well within the limit of the motor specs but not so much..... Go with 19 tooth only and it s a great motor for the money. I am upgrading to the blazinly fast and reliable velineon system. Cant wait.

my first motor went out but that was my fault. the second one, has been running great for about 6 months now since I learned to not shove it in reverse and to break it in before i open 'er up to top speeds. also, keeping it clean helps. I like this motor. it's great for the cost, 25.00, can't beat that.
michael fosdick - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Friday, November 21, 2008
My favorite brushed motor. I run this in my factory team T4 with a 23t pinion and a 4500 2s lipo on a midsize loose offroad track. I get very controllable acceleration, controllable punch, and very good top speed. I tried brushless motors in the same vehicle and they were very hard to control with any pinion and eventually sheared CVDs and dogbones with any pinion/slipper combo. I have found in this vehicle that brushless has unpredictable punch, and unpredictable low end. A popular recent issue[More…]

i dont know where your getting your titan motors from but the ones i have are working amazing. just be sure to break them in, and they'll last a few months easily

Nothing but bad luck with the titan 12t motor. I have purchased several of these and its the same story every time, after just a few uses (being cleaned after every use) they start losing brush contact and after sitting you would have to snap the brushes and if you're lucky they would start working again. I have had WAY better luck with HPI's Firebolt 15t motor with absolutely no headaches so far. I have ran 1 of the firebolt 15t in the same lifespan of 3 titan 12t's. If the titan 12t motors had[More…]

ok motor. if you dont break them in properly they burn up and even then mine burned up pretty early in it's life. my second one was a goer though, i treated it like $#!% and ran it on 3s lipo and it lasted a pretty long time :D

Very unreliable motor, seldom lasts more than 10-15 runs, good power WHEN it works, but too unreliable to justify the price. Not rebuildable, can get expensive quickly
