    Velineon motor question

    I just upgraded my brushed motor in my Slash to a Velineon setup. Is the motor not supposed to spin freely? It seems like there is a magnetic “catch” every 1/8 to 1/4 turn. The Slash doesn’t roll freely like it used to with the brushed motor, you can feel the motor catching as you push it along or as it coasts to a stop.


    Sorry, I’m still new at this and learning as I go.

    What you feel are magnets. The magnets in the rotor inside the motor. The "catch" is the gap between the magnets in the rotor as you rotate it.
