Default Help!!!!!

OK the last time I went wheeling all was well. I wheel for a bit but then my Sammy just died (burning smell, motor RED hot!)

Someone on rcc was nice enough to send me a new motor for $10 shipped! Well I decided to take the truck apart since I wanted to find the cause. I came up with nothing. Axle lockers fine, took tranny apart fine... so I hooked up the new motor and wheeled it around the garage for 2 minutes then I smelled that SMELL again! Motor=DEAD

I have the stock Losi MRC setup just on an l trail chassis. Same radio gear and esc and motor. WHY AM I BURNING OUT MOTORS??? AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH

This thing always wheeled great with no problems.

Anyone have problems with the stock MRC motors????

I'd have to say look to the ESC Bob, maybe some thing went haywire with it and it is cooking your motors, also, and this is a shot in the dark, but could your drive shafts be binding up at the u-joints putting extra stress on the motor???

Thanks Boone. Definitely not a binding issue. I have used this rig a lot and no problems then bam! Problems! If it is the esc what can I do? Do I have to just buy a new esc?



Anyone else have any other ideas?

OK a small update. Until I get a new esc, I have just been tinkering with this one. Not much free time these days but I did install the wheel wideners. I also plan on finishing off the rear (wheel wells and rear interior).

A few pics with the new wider stance. The 2 minutes I wheeled it before I burned out the motor, it handles much better. A LOT LESS rolling over.

Well I am so glad that I didnt sell this Sammy. I wheeled it today with 1badjeepbruiser and his sammy. Since the last time I used it I had some esc/motor issues. The old esc was going haywire and burning out my motors. Well now with the new esc and a Holmes Hobbies torquemaster mini motor (SCREAMS!!) this rig was back in action and pretty much unstoppable!

Unfortunately I didnt get any action pics but I got 2 of the Sammy's side by side.

More wheelin hopefully tomorrow and some more action pics. Most pics taken by 1bjb

Thanks Mike!

Thanks guys. The old rear bumper kept getting caught up so I swapped it out for this more simple one.

It came in bare aluminum but I painted it flat black

I'm just curious if anyone knows who now owns this rig or what ever happened to it. I sold it a while back and then it changed hands a few times but then I lost track of it.
