    Someone (xlint if I remember correctly) a while back replaced theirs with a motor from a hobby shop that sales remote control planes and such. As I recall, it was considerably faster than the original.

    You Know I always wondered if you could do that.

    R/C car motors are pretty awesome and you can get some pretty powerful ones. I guess I wouldn't know where to start in terms of what motor to buy from the hobby shop??? There are so many different kinds? How many turns? What kind of torque?

    Take the motor out of the trim box and take it with you. There aren't that many choices with that size motor.

    Won't need much torque at all since it's geared for it.

    Most R/C motors will be faster than a stock motor anyway.

    Also check out Ebay if you want a cheap, stock speed motor.

    If you retrofit the plastic piece at the end of the shaft, that the trim rod connects to, from one from a 750, it will be faster. It is smaller in diameter. I have one on my 1050.

    On my old 99SLX the trim motor rusted in place. After I got it loose and lubed with WD40 it worked great.

    I just broke loose a seized up one last night. Lubed it up good with PB blaster and cranked on it. Once i worked it good and free i hooked it up to juice and it worked great. BTW the regular motors are 3rpm and the high speed ones are 5.9 rpm. The gears inside the gearbox are different also between a regular trim setup and a fast one. I don't know if the gears make it faster too or not, but i know first hand they are different. I just went through that ordeal.

    Man you guys are awesome...

    Sure enough I took the motor out of the gear assembly, gave it a stern talking to, plus a shot of WD and she broke free, appears to be working perfectly!

    I am going to put her back in the boat in light of having no other options at this point and hopefuly I can get a few more seasons out of it.

    Keep it lubed, and spray the motor shell with a protectant. WD-40 has no staying power or long term lubrication qualities, so use something else.
