We are fixing more and more PTW motors. We wish that more stable motors would come out.

As people say in their blogs, Systema's genuine motor comes with broken-down-wires and damage in the "komyu" part.

I guess you have to deal with these kind of problems if you are using PTWs. Replacing a motor will cost you roughly 200 USD. With a more stable motor that doesn't break as often, you'd be saving a lot of repair money.

We had several talks with Tackleberry but they don't seem to be too enthusiastic about either making stable motors or fixing the motors, so we invested on tools to fix motors."

they are experiencing a whole lot more problem than we do, at an average of 8 out of 10 motors failure rate, all are 7511 & 7512. That is also one of the reason FCC are starting to sell their core replacement parts

In fact, if you buy anything, buy just the armature, you do not need any other parts, and if the 2.5 brush hoods are any indicator, you will have problems.

I also recommend the 30% silver brushes from Systema, and unless FCC has seriously changed their construction (the pictures show their old carbon brushes), then there is no need for them.

Brad, if you want to quote what I posted please post the entire thing. just to make it clear yes you can order systema parts from their dealer but the big question should also be when can I get my parts? I have 3 TW5 including my own still waiting for parts from Systema for almost 4 months this saturday, still no news.
