    I looked in the rear of the motor the brushes are worn compared to the new motor (same Titan 12T). They still have 2-3 MM of meat on them. The new motor brought back all the top end and acceleration.

    Haven't broke the stock shocks yet. Don't do a lot of jumping to break them. The car has a lot of runtime (300+ batteries). In fact the shocks are one of the few moving parts I haven't replaced!

    Rusty Balls

    I noticed on my last clean and inspection the ball joint balls are rusting. Similarly some of the pins holding the suspension together are rusting. Is this normal, should they be replaced?
