Opinions on Water-Break-in for Brushed motors.

Post by Origin97 on Mon 12 Aug 2013 - 8:28

Hi everyone,
I am new to RC and am trying to get as much research as I can before I buy my first SCX10 in a few weeks.

Do any of you use the water break-in method for your motors? How long do you run it. Any recommendations are appreciated.

Re: Opinions on Water-Break-in for Brushed motors.

A large discussion about "silvercan" motors, including break-in procedure, can be found on RC Tech (http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric-road/104289-silver-can-motor-tips-tricks.html)

If you have one of those sealed can motors: don't bother. At best you can run them for a few minutes at 3 Volts (2 AA batteries).

Our 55T sealed can was running for a year on regular basis before starting to make trouble. The brushes were about half way used up, but the way the brush mount is designed causes to change the motor timing over time. This is a design flaw due to reduced cost. The motor had quite a bit of muck and rust inside.

For crawling the motors are exposed to a lot of dirt, water and mud so they won't stay in perfect condition for a long time anyway.

If you want something better, get a motor with replaceable brushes. Those usually also have a lot more torque and some can be taken apart for cleaning. But they are also at least twice the price of a sealed can motor.

And yes: photos please! Very Happy
