Also would the chameleon 2 w/xxx brushes be the best 19T to run?
For stock or your CO27, you need to know what it will be used for in order to tune. Sedan in stock is 90 % wide open, so a RPM motor is usually better, so you need to maximize that. In 1/12th stock, there is less rotational mass and less volts going through due to only running 4 cells, so spring set up and gearing is different. In Offroad you need more torque. Now I'm not sure how to tune for the CO27, since it responds differently than a Monster, but at least you'll understand the thinking behind the tuning. Gearing is super important too. Depending on how the motor is tuned, there is certain ways to gear to find the motor's optimum range. Unlike stock motors, 19t (in general) tend to like to be geared to the moon. So unless you know this as well, a good motor will feel like a bad one, and all just because gearing was off. The CO27 is a new motor and it looks like a lot of racers are still experimenting to find the "sweet" spot. Don't forget about cutting of brushes, springs, serrations, break-in, batteries, etc. Just picking out a motor and brushes is only the start. Hope this helps.

Order for Sedan so we can tune for the high amp draw

red - purple + with 0.010" off each side of the brush... Align brushes by brushes wear. Fbrush or 767's work great unless you want to $$$$ up get the XXX

Correction on Batteries.

They are gonna be through Fusion and will be 1.20+ 470+ @ 30amps.


I am not gonna seperate and break up packs by runtime, voltage etc. its a marketing game and I am not into that. One price makes it easier for all.

When you take some off the brush, I'm assuming you mean leading and trailing edges, not top and bottom? Also, any slot or cavity on positive side, or with the edges cut no need for that?

Sorry leading and trailing - yes. I dont use holes but to gain RPM you can make a small hole in each brush (middle)


I should have the Batteries next week I was just informed.

Pretty good is an understatment. I have tried quite a few other matchers out there and Fusion's stuff is by far the best I have run.
Axiom made the right choice, IMO

I dont think Malin works there anymore? I could be mistaken though.

ProMatch,SMC or Fusion are all top Matchers in my opinion. It came down to weighing who could do what I needed.

That may explain why I didn't see him at the birds race. I thought he was still the team manager and I thought it strange that he wouldn't be there.

I like working with John last year when we played with doing Batteries. I was happy with the results and his customer service.

Also looking at Hurricane to do our Batts. We will announce a decision soon. We have been approached by a couple Matchers so we need to look at all Avenues for what each can bring to us and our customers, all that ordered I will make sure personally that you get what you ordered for numbers.
