    I smoked my stock X-Maxx 8S motor

    So, I heard a strange noise. I thought the pinion was off, turns out I smoked my
    motor..I took the body off, and hit the gas and saw smoke quickly pour out of the motor end caps. (Itís fried)

    What motor should I get to run on the stock Traxxas 8S ESC?

    Iím seeing some 1275KV OEM xmaxx motors for around $130.00

    Anything better for the money?

    I appreciate the advice guys.

    Jenny’s .com. Buy a new one from them. They part out kits.

    Traxxas will give you a discount on a new motor is wanting to stay stock not sure how price compares to jenny's rc.

    Or a excuse to go with a 800kv motor
