I just bought an Automodellistakit off the US> Ebay from a seller in Hong Kong (“rl0725”). For about $70 or soAUS including express postage, and it arrived in 3 days 🙂
The problem is, I think i have a dud motor. it CRAWLS along with the boost button off, it hardly moves at all. With boost on it is ok, but not very fast. have heard on The Admiral’s forums that a lot of Auto Mod kits have dud 2.2s in them.
Any ideas/suggestions? Think it’s possible to get a new one off Tomy, or isit just bad luck?
I have also read about aftermarket motors being the way to go.. anyone know where to get them?
a boost car when off boost should go at about 5/8 of normal speed at full boost the car should go a little it faster than a 2.2, like a 2.4-2.5 lets say.
if you have any other motors then just try those but if you have a problem then then just buy a new motor as it would cost the price of a new motor in postage and it would take at leats 2 weeks to get the new motor.
