Default VT80 Starter motor

Hi !
My VT80 has burned out starter motors.
Is there an alternative to Graupner Speed 300 that fits in the start house?
Want a motor with ball bearings.

Same here. Starter burned. Luckily aborted start as is was not going anywhere. There was not enough rpms to spool it up , smoked only.... when cooling the motor the starter died. Motor has run about 30 mins so far, around 20 starts...
