Narrowing the brushes to the width of a standup would increase the efficiency somewhat.

But stocks are not efficient motors - they are set up to produce the maximum power from the limited spec. Efficiency is not the best way to do this.

Narrowing the brushes will do the trick if you have to use a stock motor. If you have open rules we used to run a 21x1 spec arm in a mod can and run it at around 12-18 deg timing. I ran a motor like this in T-3 for 8 min races and it was with sanyo 2400's.
