I gear a core 17-18/86 depending on track size. P2k2 is a great motor that has similar torque RPM characteristics to the Core. Just be wear of loosing magnets.

I like trinity 4505 or Reedy 767 brushes. 4505' last forever 767 do not but produce a little more power. Stock springs for both motors.

does anyone where I can get a reasonably price brush serrator? There used to be one that was placed in the motor instead of the comm. You could serrate the brushes without removing them from the motor.

Has anyone seen anything like this lately?

Thanks

Here is one.

www.fussybrush.com.

About $25. There are others like the trinity one but it is powered and lots more. I think Intgey might have have one also.

I'm not aaron but I would assume that he is trying to clear all the mud off of his tires. With step pins and other big lug tires it is possible to clean them off with the ballooning of the tire in flight. baby powder and wd 40 can help to keep the mud off as well.

Turning your wheels in the air can help correct uneven flight and help with smoother landings. It is something that you learn with years of experience and is something that you just do more then think about.

If you've got a super fast servo, it also looks pretty pimp when you're flying through the air and whippin your wheels side to side. If I've got a jump that lands going into a turn, I'll turn the wheel ever so slightly as I'm nosing in for the landing to help set the car up for the turn.

Turning your wheels in the air levels out the truck. If your truck leans to the right off jumps, turn your wheel to the right and it will level off before landing.

Also, some tracks are set up with corners right after jump landings. Adam likes to set up for the corner by actually starting his turn while he is going up the face of the jump. Its a motocross trick that works well for truck racing.

Hope that helps!


Casper - Thanks for all your help!

Aaron,do you set your shocks so that all the arms and CVDS are inline with the ground? or do you lower the rear and jack the front up? thanks

Duratrax - I set my BK2 and MF2 up where the dogbones are level. My XXX-NT rides at rear arms level.

D Mac - I'm bummed I missed it! I'll be there next year for sure.

You can turn into the roll to flatten the truck out. Also, wiggling the wheels back and forth can help bring the front end down if your truck is nose-high. It is also possible to set yourself up for the next section of the track by intentionally wiggling your car sideways in the air but that's pretty advanced..you'll break lots of parts learning how to do that correctly.

Casper was right..it gets to the point where you don't really even think about it, it's just a habit.
