I hope this thread not only helps Beetle but I hope it helps alot of other racers/bashers as well.
Beetle has experience tuning but hadnt experienced Birdman and his customer service procedures.They arent the greatest but Dennis is a Stand up guy.

Revenge of the Monster is not a great choice for ALOT of racers in a truck.
If your track is small or medium sized it's best to go with a P2k or a P2k2.The monster's work well on a BIG track that has alot of flowing corners.

The C027 motor is a great motor.This has to be the motor thats hardest to gear out of all Trinity's.In truck it could take as LOW as a 17 and as high as a 20.

If you choose to go with another tuner later there are ALOT of great choices.

Oh, I suppose the brushes you use last for, uh, like a year or something?

I guess your saying that someone can just buy your motor and never have to put new brushes in it?

Thats absurd, DAVE, and a really shotty thing to try and stab at Dennis on this thread.

It common knowledge that most racers replace brushes every 5-10 runs on stock offroad racing anyway. So, is your motor "tuned" after that?

At any rate, Birdman is good stuff. Their batts are very good too.

Most if not all tracks are not going to have some kind of big problem with the brush spring deal.
Only a ROAR race, and they all use handouts anyway.

It is good to make your own opinion.

Just don't let one somewhat negative experience convince you that something is good or bad.

If anything, it may be a manufacturing defect that didn't show up in the tuning process.

Or, you just picked the wrong motor for your application.

I still recommend a CO27 for your application, maybe contact Dennis and let him know your experience with the Monster and see bout getting a CO27 from him.

The Monster just isnt a good truck motor IMO.

I appreciate the opinions and help guys. I tried the 767's and decided I didn't like them at all. I then tried some old Orion brushes I have, and WOW. This really sounds great now. I can't wait to try it out. I just have to wait until next week. I wish it was going to be tomorrow but family comes before racing. Thanks again, Bailey.

Well if your running a truck with a "high rev" motor. Why do you have such a small spur gear on it?

I run that same motor in the Mf1 17/88. (Track record) and on the same lap as the MOD buggies. Try it.

Birdman Motors Kick Arsssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And your son is gonna be fast!

Dave, shame on you, Again!

PS. Dennis Anderson aka "Birdman". Makes his living from his motor and Battery business. He puts alot of time on each and every motor and takes alot of pride doing so.

IMO, you should take any concerns that you may have with one of his products to him and give him a chance to make it right before starting a bash thread.

Race on and good luck.

This wasn't a bash thread. I was just wanting other opinions, wich I have gotten. Both positive and negetive. I will be trying the motor tomorrow. I hope to post positive results. If not, then maybe I will contact Dennis. Then we'll see what happens. Thanks again, Bailey.
