Default rebuild or not

These brood motors are amazing but really recently they have been acting funny. I can keep the trigger at half throttle and they will "lag" down. Then will "pop" back to full power as if the they were in a small bind. Its not on flat ground, but over very small rocks. Is this clod stall? It happens after running a few batteries. Could it be some thing else like the punk dig? Or is it just normal? They have had about three months on them running 3s from the start. Oh ya they are apocalypse 35t Type r/t if it matters.
Its not even a big deal but if something is wrong I would like to know.

Have you cut the comm or put new brushes in?
Sounds like it needs it

X2 all these motors need to have the comm turned and new brushes installed... i have found the max run time on a set of brushes has been around 10 hours total... then it's time for a rebuild...if your don't have the equipment to do this, send it back to Eddie, he'll take care of ya...

That's good to hear. They've definitely had 10 hours on them. What's the best way to get a hold of Eddie?

Sorry I missed this, but as the guys said....probably just need a rebuild and such. 10 hours is a lot, I like to rebuild them long before that as the motors last longer that way since you don't have to take such big cuts to clean the comm up.

Later EddieO
