I just picked up two stryfes both with retaliator barrel, fore grip, 18 dart clip, and stockade stock for just $5 but I think the rev motor is dead in one of them. How would I replace the rev motor or upgrade it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well whoever sold you all that stuff for $5 was an idiot, so I guess good job taking advantage of that. If you are looking to replace the motors you will need a basic knowledge of electronics and soldering equipment. (Or I guess you could tape the wires together and pray that they don't come undone.) There are some videos on the stryfe's circuitry and on how to replace the motors. There was a whole thread a while ago which debated the best replacement motor for stryfes, and I believe that these are at least considered to be some of the best. (Although I admit I was a bit too lazy to follow every post in that thread, so please correct me if I am wrong about the pololu motors)

If you are looking to upgrade the existing motors, you have two options. Remove the thermistors/resistors in the circuit and over-volt the motors, and/or plasti-dip the fly-wheels. Both of which won't help if your motors are broken anyways. I'd also check your batteries to make sure that they aren't out of juice if you haven't already.

Also for future reference I'd post this in modifications and title it something like "Stryfe's not revving" or something so people know how to help you more specifically.

Kronos, that is (I think) a Kohl's exclusive. My nephew just got that set for his Birthday. I never got one because it normally retails in store for like $45.

I have fresh batteries in the one stryfe that is dead but I want complain because I did get it all for $5 at a thrift shop. The lady said she had got a big box from Kohl's full of stuff. 1 out of 2 blasters is not bad plus all the extra.

What do you recommend? If I recall you lead that discussion on replacement flywheels.
