- Oct 3, 2013If it is that dead slow, running it at the higher 9 volts is *very* stressful on the motor and will cause it to over heat. You can't feel a cordless motor's heat on the outside (of the shell) like an old Can or classic Permanent magnet motor.JeffSent 'from the road'

Hope all is well with everyone. I just got a hold of a MTL GP-9 (I would have preferred an AZL but they don't cover my railroads). Out of the box and on the MTL track it is as slow as molasses at 9V. I loosened the body frame screws a bit thinking that would help. My 2 MTL F7s can run circles around this Geep! Any suggestions or is it just a breaking in issue? Thanks!Eric------------------------------------Z-scale: minimum siZe, MAXIMUM enjoyment!Yahoo!
