Lightbulb If its fast....Use it

I have quite a few motors. The one I like the best in the Peak HF. It gets SUPER hot, but it still goes really fast. I gave up caring about the heat.

That has been the motor I use 7 out of 8 runs for the last 9 months, and it is still blazing fast.

I thought my P2K2 was fast, until I saw one of our club regulars with a worked over Monster stock. I picked one up and took his advice on the brushes & springs, MAN is this motor fast! My TC3 has never performed better.

Default What brushes and springs?

NTC3NUT;

What Brushes and Springs did he recommend? The Standard hop-up is the #4499 brushes and the Red/Green spring combination.

Thanks,

Haha! I just read that the Cobalt and the new TI will be released in Feb. I'll believe it when I see it, though! I've been waiting for it for nearly a year now, so I guess a few more months won't make a difference. Here's hoping!

They don't actually add titanium to the motor. Ti is just what Reedy calls their mod motors, Like Trinity calls thier's D5's.

popsracer,
You wouldn't think it would work, but try 767's, with purple Trinity springs on both sides. He was using another Reedy brush that he cut & modded on his own, he said this was an easier way to go. It worked killer on all 3 of the Monsters I have. The first race I ran it in the director was asked to check my TC3 for a 19 turn arm, no kidding. (After they saw the motor was legit the guy who protested me wanted to know my gearing/brush/spring combo, I told him to get bent.) Try it & let me know what you think.

With the monster, run the 767's and drop a tooth.

Hey guys, I just saw the new Fantom version of the Monster at the local hobby shop. Guess what springs where on it? Purples,on both sides! I don't know what brushes it had in it though.

I tried the e-brushes (4499), I just prefered the Reedys.

Default Monster Stock tuning

NTC3NUT:

I just got my Robitronic Motor Dyno and I will try running some tests with different brushes and springs sometime next week. The Car works really good now as is so I don't want to make any last minute changes before tomorrows race.

Default Monster stock tuning

Bubbaicm;

Tried some spring changes and the best was RED/RED. Am going to do some Brush comparisons later this week. So far the only motor that comes close to my Monster is an old Reedy Rage. I haven't done any tuning on the Reedy and the output looks really good. My Monsters are Maxing about 34,000 RPM and the Reedy 27,000 with about the same power and torque figures.

I'll post if I find anything interesting during my tests.

BTW, I live about 10 minutes from the California Speedway Track in Fontana, CA. (and have never been there)
