My friend gave me a bottle of Peak power drops.

is this for electric motors?

if so they probably are comm drops. Personally the only comm drop I will use is the tribo stuff. it works and is some of the best stuff I have used. I wouldn't use any other stuff.

If you are set on using these drops, basically you put 1 drop on the comm or a tiny drop on each brush ( comm seems to work better at least for tribo ) and they are susposed to give you more power, etc. Thing is they can gum a motor up ( tribo doesn't do this ) especially in offroad.

Tribo works so well that I even use it on some of my bearings as they seem to last longer than before.

I love tribo !

Is it a noticeable difference in power?

Post tribos good for a while

tribo tech comm drops are a noticble increase in power but when i dyno motors for power the ones with tribo tech are best the first time and the ones with out are better the second so if clean it after every race it will be more consistant.i myself dont like comm drops unless its a dry com and brushes are getting discolored from to much friction

with tribo I do notice more RPM but no loss in torque and I also notice that my brushes and comm last longer between rebuilds.

I am not sure what you are going to notice with those peak drops but in general if you decide to go with tribo make sure you put in new brushes in your motors that have any other type of drop used or it will react with the tribo and gum it up.
