Looking to buy up to qty. 30 dud JK Hawk Retro 7Rs. Prefer ones that you have deemed beyond acceptable (not just a couple tenths off) relatively early, that still have majority of brush material left. Non two-speed motors only.

 

Secondly I am looking for qty. 5 two-speed motors. The characteristics I am interested in are the ones that nose down on the straight and then take off in the bank. Must be 7R designation with the majority of brush material left.

Taking on the work/cost of a motor manufacturer? At least someone will... LOL.

Hey Matt, while you're at it, you may want to get a few 4002FKs that need push starts. Or ones with hoods aligned by Ray Charles. And get a few with those loose endbell bushings. Throw in some of the ones with dislodged magnets. See what you can do with those piles of crap.

Hi Sam,
 
I understand your frustration, however my racing is not currently regulated by the Pro Slot motor.
 
My post here is simple and just in need of some motors. There are plenty of threads that define the flaws of the majority of motors, just grab a SARS mask, get a tetanus shot, and bring a vomit bag before viewing.

Just pointing out that all the sealed motors have had their issues. I'm looking forward to seeing your own evaluation of these motors. Answers and solutions are what we need more of.

I'll send you some of my "duds" if they have good brush length.
