Hi guys, I have a stampede that I bought second hand. All the electronics are fine, so is the gearbox. But I am not sure about the motor or springs. On their own the gearbox and motor run fine but with the firing piece the springs seem to be too strong or the motor too weak so it only can go halfway. Any suggestions or places to buy a new, unmodified motor?

Either your problem is you have a stripped gear, or the motor is broken for some unknown reason. 

First thing you should do is open the gearbox and see if ANY of the gears have missing teeth. If they are, then you need replacement gears, not a new motor. 

If the gears are all ok, and you are SURE that its the motor, then airsoft pusher motors are what I see people using sometimes. They will cost you 39-70 USD though.

Thanks for that, one of the gears is a bit worn, any place I might get replacements?

Ebay may have old stampedes in disrepair, or you could get one of those metal gear kits for the stampede if you can find them, which haven't been sold in forever to my knowledge. If you have access to a 3d printer, you can print stampede gears.
