Kyosho Orion Vortex 10 "High Torque" 550 Brushless Motor (2,800kV)
Lasted 5 short runs on a 3s and Orion will not deal with it since it came in the Kyosho DBX. Kyosho was said they will look at it to see what is wrong. In the mean time my car is indefinately on blocks. BTW Team Orion does not have this motor on their website.

I cannot find any documentation or manual to break it down and see what is the problem. There are better and cheaper replacements. Steer clear of this product.)
