    +1 replace the bearings. Transmission bearings are really important, like redux said, they maintain a very specific tolerance between gears, and any play can cause the shafts to wobble in and out of...

    Honestly I just sell or throw those away. Chargers that come with RTRs or kits are usually garbage in one way or another.
    That said, I have extremely high standards for my chargers because I build...

    Bummer to hear dude, it happens. I would tell them it had the engine problem immediately, so that they are more likely to help you.

    Break in is the most likely time for an engine to fail, because the parts fit the tightest, rub the hardest, and any manufacturing issues are likely to cause issues here.

    Honestly for bashing if the weight wasn't massive, I would do it lol. If it means I can keep my engine in the perfect temp range the entire bashing session, then that's a huge win. All you have to do...

    Yeah it's hard to judge. Best thing with used engines is if you can see the engine running, or even if you can get an opportunity to drive and tune the car yourself, then you know what you are...

    Might get better responses in the TRX Engines forum btw! :)

    If your motor is gunked at all, I'd recommend a thorough clean out. It's relatively easy, free, and takes only a little time.

    I stand corrected about my last assumption - looks like Traxxas does say the 15 runs at 300+ degrees. That to me sounds insane, but I guess if that's what the manufacturer says, keep leaning it! Lol....

    They probably won't offer those motors. Too much thought for the average hobbyist of today imo.

    Sorry I don't know about the motor shaft length, but you can always dremel the shaft down a bit.
