  • Revoslot motor

    Well, I bought this car used, in very good condition, but the motor seems to be failing. Under power it only turns a quarter-turn at a time, kinda sputters and I can see it light up and spark on the inside. it spins freely by hand, like normal. Can someone recommend a contact cleaner for me to try to clean it with. Also, are there special tools needed to take it apart if I need to do that? Here's the car in question, fwiw. Thanks!

    You could try putting it in some WD40 or even just in the some water and run at 3v - that might clean any garbage out.

      Does it spin freely by hand or is something stuck inside?

      WD40 leaves an oily film, try lighter fluid or easy start.

        Does anyone use a cleaner called DeoxIT? or a cleaner from a brand CRC?
        WD40 is only used to clean my motorcycle chain!

              Thanks for the tip, looks like a very good product they make. They're local to me and sell local too! I'll pick some up at the local electronics/electrical supply house.

                Excellent!
                I cut away some of the sticker wrap over the top of the motor - did that void the warranty? I didn't open it.
