Snikkari - I ran 4499's for club races and 4505's for big races.

I don't believe in polarizing brushes, and I don't like 767's.

The 4505 has the diagonal serrations, and the 4503 is the 99 Plus compound with straight serrations?

Your right. I like the one with the diagonal serration!

For club racing the 4500 is an awsome brush. It produces good power but LASTS FOREVER! The 4500 will last longer then your motor and produce the same kind of power.

The 99plus and the 4499 will produce more power though.

Thumbs up

hehe ok..just checking. I was confused for a bit there.

This is why I like mod racing..just run 4380's and be done with it. Need more motor? Drop a wind.

One motor with 2-3 sets of $3.00 brushes or 2-3 $50 motors? Hummm. On a budget I pick stock! It also keeps me from having to race you!

I love this combo in touring, tons of punch and great rpm. Run it with red springs on both sides. My turbo dyno showed the best eff. numbers with this setup as well. I have ran this setup in both the monster and the binary with very similar results. Good luck and have fun!

There is absolutely no reason to run an aluminum gear in a Losi transmission. They don't wear out and won't strip unless you do something wrong. Metal conducts heat and increases weight.

Casper - Good point. I just don't like watching stock be a battle of batteries..

(although it was a lot of fun wheelie-ing past everyone. Anyone wanna drag race in stock? hahaha)

Same argument in 19T. It is even worse though since they do not dyno tune the motors you really have even more of a crap shoot to get a good one. Batteries are an issue in mod. I have seen certain individuals bump a few times! Instead of stupid voltage you mod guys need run time to be able to drop that wind! In the world of competative racing you need deep pockets but that is true for most any hobby worth getting involved in. I did not mean to make this a which is better arguement so I will stop commenting on this topic but both classes are a heck of a lot of fun in different ways but both take $$$$ to be competative.

The only time I have a problem with anything is if I don't charge the battery all the way. The only time you should dump is if your comm is soo overly worn that its just suckin' power like a mf-er. Keep your comm fresth and your batteries charged and personally, I don't think there should ever be a problem.
