Had a Carrera car running the E-200motor zipping around the track a while back,suddenly it sounded like a V-8 with half the cylinders dead
. We putted into the pits and could not take off again without a push.
Sounds like a dead spot in the armature? I ordered a new motor and installed,story over right?
Been using the bad motor for mockup on chassis builds and decided to see what went wrong,so I took it apart
The problem is were the windings connect to the commutator
they are just crimped.....Question is can/should these be soldered? I tightened the crimp and the motor runs part time
or is it best just to pitch it ?
