Support Notice - Jumpshot Saturn 550 12T Brushed Motor

Tue, 6th February 2024

It has come to our attention that a small number of Jumpshot MT's (#160260) and Jumpshot SC's (#160267) from a recent batch (2023) have been supplied with an incorrect motor. Our investigations have found they are not 12T as labelled and specified by our supplier, but are 18T instead. This greatly reduces the RPM output we expect from the 550 12T motor, limiting the top speed & acceleration of Jumpshot brushed models and this is not how we expect the Jumpshot to perform out of the box. 

The 18T motor does not affect the general running of these Jumpshot models. The 18T motor can continue to be run without causing other chassis problems. 

If the top speed of your new Jumpshot MT or SC is around 16mph (26 Kph) on a smooth flat surface and the motors outer can be identified as the 18T motor in the below images and you wish to have it replaced, please contact your retailer for warranty replacement.
