I have noticed in those cheap motors the bearings tend to be rather hit or miss so maybe the bearing took a dump then overheated the motor idk.

Mine is the 3665 3100kv https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2251832450138245.html?gatewayAdapt=4itemAdapt I originally bought it for my Ruckus but it was a bit overkill for it. Now it sits in my Slashpede 4x4.

Whoa! Just saw Amazon has a 3674 that has some pretty good reviews. I can’t imagine the low end that thing makes

I still have my GoolRc combo, it's sitting in one of the torments i hardly ever drive, well the one i want to turn into a Midwest modified, but that's another story.
I am really happy with my Onyx and Hobbywing set ups. They truly take a beating.
I don't trust their escs, I see so many of them just randomly let out the magic smoke.

I rarely ever see people have issues with the motors, hell I even know people who swear by the eBay/Amazon cheapos.

My experience (reading others feedback) is the same. That’s why I didn’t mind the $50 or so (combined) I spent on the two goolrc test motors and would likely buy them again. My concern with the ESCs is the rate they seem to catch fire. When driving a chassis which has some difficult to replace and/or no longer made parts, I fear what else would be lost as it burned up, really catastrophic if it involved the lipo resting directly beneath it. It seems goolrc escs unalive themselves at about the same rate Russian armor and frigates do (and in equally dramatic fashion).

For escs I try to stick with Hobbywing or Castle.
