was the gear mesh between the pinion snd spur gear okay? its kind of hard to tell without actually having your truck to look at to find the problem.

i think by the sounds of it you might have your gear mesh to tight witch it turned made your motor to hot

causeing it to light fire







the fire could also be from a short

but if the inside lit on fire


the motor is working to hard for some reason

take a piece of paper when u set up your new one and press the spur and pinion together with the peice of paper and tighten it up right there pressed into it with paper

and you should get perfect mesh

Over the years I have had a few motors go bad on me. Never started a fire tho I melted the winding once. Its pretty easy for an already weak motor to get a little too hot and then let go.

Batteries on the other hand I have had blow apart, burst into flames, melt thru plastic chassis, you name it...

But then I have been doing this for 25 years...

With your motor out of the truck just make sure your vehicle hasn't any undo friction in all the gears. Include full lock steering in your tests. It may be possible that under a certain circumstance the truck bogs down, putting undo stress on the motor / esc. Its an easy way of taking your truck out of the equation.

k well i have heard ( Heard ) it is possible, depending on what esc and battery your using, if you wired it wrong you could be putting too many amps or volts or something to the motor, but it would have to be a cheap crappy rated motor,.. and since you said you checked the tranny and everything else for friction thats obviously not your problem then, but hopefully all goes well and, like you said, its just a bunk motor. ok bye
