Default Smallest comm size?

I've been searching, and I can't come up with any info on how small you can safely cut a Monster stock motor.

Anyone have any ifo out there? A link would be great.

Thanks,
JC

Getting a new arm is way cheaper than destroying a diamond bit.

Cuase once the comm gets so small the outer edge of the bushes are to touch.It going to form a perfect circle around the comm and short out.Only take a second or two of WOT to fry it when shorted.
