sup people.

 

I have an Ares m4 cqc s class. I love this thing. I just got it brand new from airsoft gi 2 months ago. I only used it like 3 times. I have noticed that when Im firing it, either in burst, full auto, or rapid single fire. I can feel the motor get super hot!. I'm running a 9.6. 1600mah nunchuck battery. im afraid the motor or the battery is going to blow. what is going on here?!?!?!?!?

 

please bestow me with your knowledge... :sp_ike::a-american::microwave:

I'll tell you what's going on and it's God aweful.

 

The motors are going to a serious defect issue right now. The motor armearures are like wavy, dippy and uneven right now. I've set 4 lonex motors on fire from overheating with an 11.1v lipo, 2 ZCI motors, and 1 ShS motor.

They were all similar in the same way being that it was all uneven and the brushes were very wiggly.

 

It's just the time for someone to make a brushless motor!

99% of motor overheating in airsoft is caused when the spring is too stiff for the motor to handle optimally.

it still pulls it, but struggles.

 

if you give it a higher juice battery and it turns out to be adequate, that might solve the issue. but this is a trial-and-error procedure and won't guarantee a fix.

if the motor is too "highspeed" it might not work at all.

So...the surer way is to get a higher torque motor.

 

FYI, if anything does blow up, it will most likely be your wiring before motor or battery.

well, technically the wiring insulation melts and it creates a short then it shorts your battery and when that happens your battery is the first thing to go, which is the worst of the three to go, but yeah...

Although I had a ZCI Ht motor overheat and catch fire running a m120. So that means that a 22 tpa neo magnet motor can't handle a M120 with a 9.6v?

 

In any other case it would be the spring or gearset but when you have a very high tpa motor and many other higher quality motors fail it's not a just an issue with a gear system.

 

Does your motor spark a lot when you run it?

Lord help us if a 22 TPA motor can't pull an M120 spring on a 9.6v. I used a JG blue to pull a M170 on an Intellect 9.6v.

 

My primary rifle has a JG Blue, 14:1 gears and a M120 spring in it, and it cycles just fine on a 7.4v stick (read: under powered) battery.

 

If you can't pull a M120 on a 9.6v with a 22TPA motor, you are either doing something wrong, using a :censored2: battery, or have a bum motor.

so what if I switch to lipo?

thanks for your input guys. I chronoed the gun and it was hitting 380 fps. its gotta be either a 110 spring. or a really really brand new of the factory floor m100 spring. I will check

It could be a weak/poor compression M120.
