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 them out with an air hose. Gear properly for the application. If you overheat them, they wont last long. A little care will go a long way. These motors have very good torque and moderate speed. In bone stock trim, with no upgrades, they will do about 23 mph. They are great for spec racing. I've used quite a few of them in Spec Slash classes and have been very pleased. They are sealed can brushed motors, so they wont last forever. I've had some last for months and still perform well. How long they last also depends on the conditions you run them in. If you run outdoors in dusty conditions, then their lifespan will probably be shorter. If you run indoors on a clay surface, then you will get more life out of them. They mass produce these things, so occasionally you will get a bum one that goes like that. Traxxas is a pretty good company so there shouldn't be a problem getting a replacement.
