Yous need to learn how to search, everything is on the internet waiting for people who put in the effort to search for it.

i will say this much

run it in water until the brushes are completly bed in
run it in shellite for as long as your nerves will cope. CAUTION USE LOW VOLTAGE and take safety measures.
use a thickish com drop and thin bushing lube and you will be quick. after every run clean the comm with motor spray and re lube.

I've tried this with my dyno and it works

Actually you can do that with the Sport Tuned motor. . . it is 23t and looks more like a mabuchi. . .
I wonder how many will try that. . . shhhhhh don't tell anybody . . .

Yes, it's fine...the charger won't get damamged. Just make sure it can handle a decent amperage load, as the motor pulls more amps submerged. Come to think of it...even under water I think they pull 2-3 amps...so your good.

Not sure you want to be water dipping a motor overnight. In the morning you won't have any brushes left!!! LoL..

Water dipping is very effective in taking material away from the brush face to allow it to conform to the comm shape. It should be done for a minute or so. At the very longest. Say 1 minute should be plenty...

Even water-dipped, only a few minutes will not completely seat them. I've run them in under water for over an hour and still didn't fully seat.

Have you ever run in a 540.

At 7.2 volts it takes around 2 minutes +, not 1 minute.

At 2v it takes around 6 hours

My mistake....

From memory it seemed like a fairly quick process! But i admit, it was a looooong time ago. When i first started playing around with RC cars. Perhaps i wans't doing it correctly then.

But then again, i never raced my 540 competitively. Appologies guys. How long DO you dip it for?

I clean my comm out with a few drops of brasso and run it on the lowest speed setting on my dremel for about 20secs and then clean it out with motor spray. I also make sure I get all crap out of the 3 slots in the comm with compressed air.
Then I put a couple of drops of Tribo on the comm and a couple of drops of oil on the bushings and voila, I have one of the fastest motors every time.
Proper break in is also important. Break in your motor in water on a low voltage setting in 5 minute intervals until you see that the brushes are seated properly on the comm.
