.I am hitting 100 km/h easily on 8-10000 watts, and did a bunch of medium speed offroad today and it was great

I am hoping we will all put our info there to help, inspire, brag, discuss fixes to problems etc. Also showing your project would be nice. Plus If we can discuss what equipment to go with these would be helpful.

It is a very distinct smell, you will know it when there is a problem

So far the only hub I recall reading about here on ES that actually got windings destroyed was one by I think El_Steak that was a motor with internal fins glued on--a fin came off and got stuck in the winding/cover/fins and shredded stuff. Bad Hair Day.
It wouldn't have mattered if his was vented or not.
My 9C has been using the huge-holed covers from the 9C/GM I got from Icecube57 a while back, and even with all the dirt and dust here in Phoenix, and all the metallic road debris, rocks, etc., that abound on our always-under-destruction streets, I've yet to get anything in there. Even dust has been minimal--I get more dust in my house, layered on everything, from one night with the doors and windows open than that motor has gotten in it the whole long time (half a year? more? I forget) the motor's had those covers on it.
Not much dust to see there, right after taking the cover off to swap it to one modified for rear-wheel use:

I tried to install my rim and it appears that I have no spacer supplied to me that keeps the chain sprocket( mine is 3 speed) away from the rear dropouts. Could someone please take a picture of it so I can machine a piece on the lathe or perhaps washers installed on the axle will work as a spacer.

I just put my motor back together with a replaced hall and it works! Now I just need to get my 24 Fet controller repaired so I can properly punish this motor for my sins. I also fabbed up some aluminium spacers to make sure this doesn't happen again (much like VoiceCoils idea with the C washers).
Soon as I get my 24 Fet going again I can get the mascara running on this motor. Woo Hoo!
