    Bad motor maybe??

    So I have a 2wd brushed 12t motor and it has new esc and has stock gearing but all are new my question is could motor be bad since it's going really slow like top speed is maybe 15 mph and it doesn't take off fast enough to pop a wheelie or spin tires any help be great.

    Did you break the motor in properly?

    Stock motors won't do wheelies, unless you go reverse and forward really fast in a high traction surface like a carpet which is bad by the way and that's how mine broke.

    Could it be in trainer mode?
