Maybe 3 trust fires is too much? Maybe it is intended to run at stock voltage or a little more?
The forward voltage rate is 9volts. MAV seems to be running them at recommended voltage, so i'm not sure whats happening for him.
I've burned two of these motors with 4s 14500 cells, but that was a controlled test to see what they could take and to know the warning signs. I normally run them on 3s 14500 cells, and have had no malfunctions. My blasters have not gone through a whole lot of use, so perhaps that's a factor. I'm looking for some higher quality Tamiya's to do some testing, but right now i have nothing definitive to say. If my motor's do shred, i'll be replacing them and running them on 2s 14500 cells to see how that works out.
I'm slowly losing faith in these motors as i continually hear horror stories of blasted and bombarded melted shreds coming from their use.
Mav13, it seems like more expensive higher quality motors are a better option.
