Well was working on a IW, when i reassembled the motor pod i left out a spacer so the motor pinion was binding against the diff. Now i did this before hand with out knowing and gassed the throttle in the air, before i knew what hit me a whift of white smoke came out of the board, but strange thing is it didnt look like it was from the fets and the fets still look fine i re seated the motor and it still works with full functions???

Any insight? According to the previous owner this happened to him once also.

Sound's like it the way you explaned it to me in the thread . Most of the time that smoke is comming from the electronic board not the fet's. LOL next time you'll remember That spacer. Thanks Josh

If its not the FETs, its your motor brushes.

Do you still have full range? I had two of my newest Iwavers lose range after having replaced the motors with stock Mini Z motors. No FETS fried, but obviously something in the board couldn't handle the motors.

I'll have to check, from what i can tell the range is still fairly well, havnt really had a chance to try to go far though.

did you get any smoke?

Don't remember any smoke. It simply stopped in the middle of the track. If I remember right I could hold my arms out with the transmitter in one hand and the car in the other and get control, but as soon as I put it on the ground, nothing.

Bottom line range was about 2 inches when all was said and done.
