Hello nerfhaven

 

Recently I accidentally broke off one of the motor tabs on my 180 sized hell cat motors. Is there anything I can do to fix it? or is it trash now?

 

very specifically im talking about the small copper tabs that you connect your positive and negative wires to.

Unfortunately, the solder tabs aren't replaceable. You need a new Hellcat...

 

I'll admit that I broke a motor the same way. You can add some strain relief with a dab of E6000 or Goop after you solder the wires to make this less likely...

Can't you just build up solder on the bit that's not broken, i did that on a standard DC motor so i'm not sure if it will work, and depending on how much broke off.
