Default Plum Quick Motor upgrade

I have a spare 36v motor (still in an old CC cart I just bought for a song). I know it works fine but from outside looks all rusty. I was wondering if I send it in for a Bandit upgrade would they just use the core but put in all new insides? I wonder if an old motor is a good candidate for the upgrade if they would recondition it. I wanted to ask them. I been trying to call Plum Quick last couple days but keep getting answering machine. So thought perhaps someone here knows how things work with them.

As long as it works it will be fine and they will clean it up and paint it too!!

Is that a good thing or a bad? Is it worth paying just under $300 for this upgrade? They claim it will give me 25% more speed and torque.

Where did you get this info? Any idea why this gives more speed? Always been curious as what is done internally on the motor. Do they change the windings any?

Shaffer88...what did they quote you?

something to do with the clearance you are able to gain 5 to 6 mph and from what I am told its needs to be ground and not turned on a lathe.
