    I think my motor is going

    Well its confusing to me but i think my motor has about had it.What happens is in forward it struggles a bit and not much speed,but in reverse it has lots of torque and speed.

    If it's a brushed motor and used, the brushes are probably just about had it... They get worn down with normal use and could easily wear more on one side then the other.

    Simple fixes: If you can replace the brushes, replace them...
    Or just go brushless conversion, never have to worry about it again, faster, longer run times too

    The motor i'm getting is a brushed integy 35t due to being on a very tight budget.I was thinking of going brushless but i don't think my tazer 12t esc is compatable with a brushless.The trinity died do to muddy dirty water i was stuck in a creek and thought i could get out,but it dug up small chunks of rock and mud.needless to say it didn't take long to shut down.

    The add in one of my booklets that came with a traxxas truck said it's a "no questions asked" policy. But this deal is where you just get money off for a new one

    Yes Traxxas will take the trade in even if its burnt to a crisp! But note, you are trading in the stock brushed esc and motor for a Brushless ESC and Brushless Motor.
