Decited to try stock's for a change (had my eye on hot mod's
before) and bought a new GM3, after 3-4 minutes it began to
slow like batteries were dead (good batteries, Corally's 2400
Street).. Got down and noticed a really bad smell, looked the
car and it smoked like a cigarette, thick blue smoke.
Oh well, thought that some *** or something from carpets
got to the motor or something. And thought that it was so warm
because of my gearing, running Street Weapon, 24 pinion and
something like 75-80 spur gear (82 is stock). It was fairly fast
Got the car to the pit, opened the motor, found out that the
brushes and comm were ok, just like it was straight from box.
Just put a 21 or a 22-tooth pinion in and changed the batteries.
Hit the track and did not get even two rounds when the car
started jamming up again. Stopped and took a looooong look
at the car as it smoked like a moped..
Took the motor off the car again and cursed for a moment..
While i was putting my mod motor together, one of our club's
men noticed what's wrong on the motor - one of the wire "packs"
had fried. Actually it got so hot that the lacquire on wires had
melted and spread over the armature..
