Since There Are No Brushes Or Commutator To Wear Out, The Need For Maintenance Is Virtually Eliminated. The Velineon 3500 Delivers Consistent, High-Power Output, Run After Run.
An angry Amazon customer share a review about Traxxas Velineon 3500: These "new" versions of the old Velineon motors are garbage. I've gone through 2 of them with 5 hours of running time on each one. Both the same problem. Melted bearings. Had to send the first one to Traxxas to get it replaced and pay $40 to do so. Then the replacement does it again. Yet the old version of the motor is still going strong in my Rustler from 4+ years ago. Do not buy these motors. They are utter junk. Disappointed Traxxas, unacceptable.
