The Checkpoint brushes are still out of stock since Sept in H.K.?
I own the Yok T6, 8X2 & 7X2 and run with CS silver brush - Very user friendly in term of gearing the right ratio. I need not to worry the motor being overheat. The Arm wires are secure with kinda "Form" ring around the solder joints, it also have black expoxy fixed at the middle of the arm (in between the pole). It also build with a self cooling fan which I have problem to descript it.
No sure it is a fast motor (but I love it), as I noted from my recent holiday in HK, it is not a popular motor.
I ran a V2 8X1 recently, have to match spur/pinion combination to get right ratio to prevent motor from overheat. It is a fast motor. Very economical with brushes (as the CS/Reedy/CheckPoint Silver brushes are expensive). Can someone post the new revised V2 endbell?
Still yet to try my Checkpoint 7X2. No sure what is the major preformance differences between the 7X1 & 7X2 with the CP motor? The 7X1 are selling like hot cake in H.K. Anyone?
