    I have a 2200kv motor out of a Brushless e Revo and the rotor came apart inside the motor. I got it apart and was wondering if anyone has ever had this happen and been able to fix the rotor.

    I would try to contact Traxxas and see if it’s covered under warranty. I’ve had good experience with them.

    It's about 3 years old not sure if it would still be under warranty but I will give it a try thanks.

    I've had that happen to me before on one of our Short Course Race Trucks. I used CA glue to get me through the day. Then I ordered a new rotor from my LHS and replaced it.

    I would not recommend re gluing the rotor, unless your willing to possible cook the thing beyond repair. I only did it because I'm running a points series and DNF's hurt the run for the Championship.

    You could contact Traxxas, like already mentioned. I would just buy a rotor and a rebuild kit since your in there already. Hope that helps a little.

    They discontinued the rotor replacement kit. I'm gonna glue it, wrap it with nylon thread, then glue the thread to the rotor and hope it lasts long enough so I can order a new motor. Thanks for the help. If it holds up for a long time I will post about it and let everyone know
