Well I bought a Losi XXX Buggy from this guy and it had about 50 runs on it. It came with 2 batteries, a 1300 and a 1400 and a Dynamite 15 min Qiuck Charger. So I don't think the batties fully charged because I only got 2 minutes a pack. But I bet I would get about 20 runs a day and I did that for a bit.

Does anyone know what brushes to use? The motor is all white and has enitials on it so it must be hand wound.

And how much performance will I suffer if I don't cut the comm?

I will go BL soon.

I went to my LHS and they asid my motor is DONE. So he showed me this case and he was like take any of these motors you want for $25. He said he pre cut or something with the brushes and cut the comm. It looked brand new. There were like 10 motors in there. All of them were 27 turn. So would a pro tuned Trinity P2K2 be a good deal for $25?

Thumbs up Good price!

Ya.. $25 is a good price. It is an older style motor can, but still very good. The "Pro Tuned" version just means that it has better brushes and springs to start of with and it has been dyno tested.

A stock brushed motor usually needs far less maintenance than a brushed modified. If you get a mod that is under say 13 turns.. you are looking at cutting it every 2-3 runs... Less if you have high silver content brushes like the Trinity XXX series.. but I dont think they are making them anymore..

You should be able to get a good used lathe these days for well under $100.. everybody is going brushless now..


Hope this helps!

Have fun!

Jerome
