    "Engine"? Sounds bogus. You supplied no contact info.

    Ha - motor I mean. Just replaced at Tesla Burlingame. Shop foreman has seen faulty roadster motors 5-6 times since working on ground floor. Supposedly an internal fault occurs in the coils when you step on it. Wish it happened under warranty.

    At least I get to keep the core. I'm going to try and rebuild/sell for 1/2 new. I can be reached at [email protected]

    Pictures if you can..and especially if you locate the fault on disassembly.

    Old motor is out; shipped it to Seattle where a shop owner is going to pop it open, see what's wrong, and try to rebuild it
