Express uk has done really well so far this year, hopefully through out the winter there should be a few more things won

Going to be running 19t in the next week and i was wondering what brushes all you lot use (i race 27t mostly), are there specific brushes for a certain types of tracks or can you just run the same brushes that you run in stock in a 19t (this is the track i'll be racing at if it helps Cotswolds )

Hey Charles.. Glad to hear from you. For 19T we tune with X1 brushes and 4499 brushes. Usally Purple+ Red- . If your running in fairly warm climate run XXX brushes with purple springs thats what we run outdoors..

Stock we run full face F brushes and X1 brushes with red springs if we run indoors and feel we want slightly higher RPM we run purple springs. Some of our motors do draw 12+ amps with that last combo but with todays batteries Voltage and RT carries them to the end ,Fans may be required..

Comm drops I only use (Zubak's speed juice)during break in. I place 2-3 drops down each brush hood break in as needed 5-7 minutes @ 2 Volts w/fan, when complete flush well,reoil and done..

Anybody needing 4200SHV cells from our next batch please E Mail me so I can put them aside for you. Our latest batches went faster than I could ship them and I already got 70+ packs sold in this next batch. This batch should be done late next week as cells will be in monday. Next batch might or might not be done before Vegas so be sure to order early...

All those whom already e mailed me you will be in this coming batch before Vegas for sure..

Maybe it just me, but if they paved the infield!!! oh yea!!

No but really it looks cool, just like I told you. You are in Nascar heartland and the biggest thing there is oval, might as well run it and get the name out there that much more.
