    Split washer inside motor?

    Hi guys.

    So I decided to check over my motor today after about 3 months of bashing and all is looking clean inside apart from a washer.

    It looks like it is split and was on the rear motor shaft.

    Can anyone tell me if this has split and if so, a part number for a new one.

    A photo tells a thousand word.....



    Or 2




    Thanks guys!

    I don't think it is to have a split. It may be there to be a bushing for the bearings or part of the bearing sheild?

    I've never taken my xmaxx motor apart so not sure. A split in the ring would give it a little but of tention against the two parts. Could be possible but again unsure...

    Thanks for the reply.

    I should have said that they feel like they are made from like nylon or something similar.

    You can easily flex them.

    Probably just a nylon bushings then to keep the part from contact with the bearings. Measure the one you have and see what you can find as a replacement that same size.

    Unfortunately Traxxas doesn't list the parts and sizes of what's inside the motor as they deam them non serviceable.

    They are shims to help remove the play in the rotor when mounted in the motor case. I would just get some shims in the diameter of the shaft and install between the brass spacer and bearings to remove play.
