Flywheel problems?

My Stryfe has Barricade motors installed but, for some reason the flywheels spin faster when tilted on the left ,When the rubber guarding and everything is on. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

One of your motors is not well or you have a loose connection. Start by checking the motor tags and all your soldering on the motor block.
I suspect the brushes or bearing on one of the motors is worn. One reason we tend not to use second hand motors.
You could also be mistaking flywheel noise for "power" and one of your flywheels lightly contacts the cage or throws the motor bearing a little when you tilt it.
What voltage is it running at and what other mods are done to it?

Full rewire and atm running on alkalines i can send a sound file to you too.

Alkilnes are not going to give you much idea of potential performance. I can't fix it from here by remote, you are going to have to do it. What  Lipo did you get in the end?

EDIT:
Can you replace them with stock motors? Will that work if so i might get a new pair of stock.

If the motors are changing speed depending on orientation I'd guess either that something is rubbing when the Stryfe is upright (and tilting to the left stops it rubbing - the motor shafts will have a little axial play so this is quite possible) or simply because there's less friction when tilted over so the motors can spin more quickly (they are simple bushings and running them at an angle may well reduce the normal force on them/friction between them and the shaft). The latter would be exacerbated by low torque motors or a poor power source that can't supply enough current for the motors to generate enough torque - the alkalines could be part of the problem, they certainly won't help. If the bushings themselves aren't in good condition that wouldn't help either.

As in stock Stryfe motors? Well... yes, you can, but then you'll be back to having a stock Stryfe.
