If two motors (both said to be properly rebuilt) both perform poorly I would look somewhere else for the cause... why dont you borrow a known "fast" motor to make a run with... if it is slow then your problem lies else where but if it flys buy one just like it.

If you think if it, the best way to seat brushes would be by using a slave motor to drive the one you are breaking in... No worry about arcing during the break in...

to tell you the truth i just got that idea from Big Jims motor black book...and it works for me, it gives my motor top end w/o sacrificing torque...so if you think it doesnt work then don't do it...you do wht works for you...
