I didn't have any problems with mine before it blew up (though I didn't get that many runs in...)

I've heard many people who use it say the manets start to become really weak after a few runs. I've gone off Trinity after their 'The Truth about brushless motor' article, so I tend to use Orions- a core stock in my mi2, and a pro orbital 2 bb in my 'blade (though I cracked the diff case in that so it's not running atm ).

I have spoken far to quickly, took my blade out and the motor has zero power now. I can only assume its the magnets that have gone

I will have to go back to my peak v2 12x2 for bashing. No good for when i'm stock racing though

sucks

I find the core is far better suited to my track anyway; way more torque.

Yep the magnets in the monsters r carp ! If the club u race at or just for genereal bashing in the street an Orion Core can & a Monster armature is great !

Ive never had a problem with my monster it has lasted me great. The reason why the magnets become unstuck etc. is due to them being overgeard/overheating

Well i've used my fantom silver(monster) for a couple of months now every week at the club and its still like new. The motor comes off warm after each run(not hot), its just as quick every week and the magnets are still intact and doing there job.

i have been running monsters for about 1 and a bit years and have only ever had a problem with the first one i had when i blew it up by accident,(by over gearing)

but i have always found monsters quite good,

but this year i have been running fantom p2k2's and they have been great and i don't know why i didn't run them last year,

Ive never had a problem with a monster, although i prefer the demon quad mag alot more.

Does anyone else have problems with the bushings on stock motors wearing down quite quickly, or is it just me? cos i found on my monster the bushings wore down quick quickly, and now my demon is starting to show signs of wear.

P.s i use fastrax bushing oil.

I found normal 3-in-1 oil actually gave me a lower bushing wear rate then oil dedicated to the task.

Just have to make sure you apply it as often as you can. I also found Tamiya Bushing are a lot tougher then others as well, but i'm not sure if they increase friction or not.

Is there that much to be gained for using BB instead of bushings in the motor ?

yeah i think i saw somewhere that adding each bearing can add either 5% to each of the figures, so that means that an extra 10% to the performance of a motor,

but as it isn't legal then personally i wouldn't use them,

yeah there will be a big gain, personally i think stocks should have bearings cheaper in the long run and much much better, but suppose stock means stock

As i said i only use stock at the local club and everyone is allowed to use them if they want. The biggest difference i noticed was it was much more sparkier comming out of the corners, it was still the same speed as the bushed motors but i usually pull a car length or two on the bushed cars.
