  • Avoid operating temperatures exceeding 65C (150F).
  • Never touch the motor after use as it may be EXTREMELY hot.
  • Allow the motor to cool completely between uses.
  • Be sure to use the proper size motor mounting screws.
  • Do not over-tighten the motor mounting screws.

When switching to a higher voltage battery from a lower one (to 11.1V from 7.4V, for example), a change in gear ratio or a lower kV rated motor might be necessary. Otherwise, the motor or ESC may overheat and sustain permanent damage.


  • If replacing the motor mounting screws, use the same type and size that your vehicle was equipped with originally.
  • Do not over-tighten the motor mounting screws. Doing so may strip the mounting hole threads.
  • Connect the + and – motor leads to the corresponding leads on your Electronic Speed Control (ESC).
  • To adjust timing, loosen the main screws slightly and twist the endbell until the desired setting is reached, re-tighten the screws. The factory setting of 0° is NEVER exceed +1- 20°.
  • To clean your motor, lightly brush dirt away on a regular basis paying particularly close attention to the areas around the ball bearings. DO NOT spray cleaners or solvents into the motor.
  • On a regular basis, inspect the brushes to be sure they move freely within their hoods.
  • When the brushes become worn, or if they display signs of color change, replace them.
