I just burned one of my CCE Fatboy motor and I have only had it for 1.5weeks now.

Is thier a way to fix it or any suggestions on a new motor from other companies?

If anyone can please help me!!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEARS TO ALL. :)

What voltage are you running?

Does your suspension have movement (ie..do you have a full stack of coils)?

Are you holding the switch?

Is there any oil getting in the motors?

I've full stacks to the front (4 tons) and running 60volts.

And I'm not holding the switch nor oil is entering.

Oh thanks for your time :)

When you try to raise the car does it go up any? You said that you have a full stack in there and you might just need them to break in before yopu hit the switch. Do you have deep cups?

Yeah I also have deep cups. its weird cause I have had the street edition series before and I have only burned a motor once and thats because I forgot to put on the casing bearing inside. Though I had that setup for over a year and never a problem. My new setup came assembled and I use it just like the other one.

No I don't believe I have broken in the springs yet. :)

Yeah, you are suppose to break in the motors B4 you run full voltage. Take the motors off. Remove the key. Put the motor back on. Connect only 1 battery. hold down the switch for about 5 seconds and let the motor spin. Then take it off and put the key back. Still using 1 battery raise the car slowly to prime and bleed the lines. Once the lines are bled. Raise and lower the car a few times with 2 batteries. This will get the new motor nice and ready

well i don't rebuild my motors, i brush the bushings every now and again, but i let my local starter shop do it for me. i burnt a motor about 3 weeks ago, took it to them and they re-built it in about 30 min, and charged me 15.00 ;) thats your best bet, and yes it's alot cheaper to re-build the motor as apposed to buying a new one. ;)

well yea, you can get the instructions with the kit, but trust me it's way way cheaper if you just let the pros do it. it will save you time, and probley money too, just incase you mess up.
but they will sell you the kit, and probley give you detailed instructions too. ;)
