    Velineon 3500 issue

    Just discovered the front bearing is shot. If the rotor is still good, I'm going to get stainless/ceramic bearings for it. If not, new motor I guess.

    Looks good from here. Im sure the stator is fine but its worth inspecting as well.

    I had the same problem and upgraded to Boca Bearings' hybrid ceramics since i felt that i cheated death and didnt wanna take that chance again.

    Thanks. I love ceramic bearings, have a whole set in my erbe. Never have to worry about them again.

    Ordered SS/ceramic motor bearings and a whole ceramic bearing kit amd new spur for my Son's Slash 4x4. I'll have to do all this to mine next.
