    Brushed Motors Both Failed?

    Kids driving the E-MAXX yesterday. It's been great for my 3yr old running on half speed.

    Anyway, it suddenly stopped. ESC was still green but dimmed or went out when power applied. I figured the batteries were out but the run time seemed too short.

    Charged batteries to make sure but still the same issue. Motors won't move. Hooked the ESC up to two other Titan motors and they both run fine. Gearbox turns freely. When you disengage the two fitted motors from the spur they still don't turn.

    I could swap those two motors in except that one is a reverse one as they're from a Revo.

    Any thoughts? Happy to delve into the motors if it's worth the effort.

    Or, put in a Castle MM2 system and run it 4s.
    The ReglarGuy is kid tested and father approved.

    Yeah thanks guys.

    I've got a 1/8th Brushless system I can put in. Wanted the kids to practice a bit more with the brushed first but that's life. I guess.
