thnx..with the same gearing this motor is way faster than my c2, almost too fast down the straight, but it was a little too hot for me at the end of the run, i did change to both purple springs and used the f brush, killer combo,but you only get like 2 runs with that brush, im going to try the 767 brush next.

767's work good, also try hurricane golds.

If you want to bump up the torque, drill a #56 hole in the center of the brush. It'll burn the brush in one run, but it is ballistic.

With a fan mine pulls 9A at 1V with Golds and it pulls 12A at 1V with the hole in the brushes.

Well, since they're pretty much fried after one run, just a couple mm should be more than adequate eh Tim?

Yup. not too far. About 1-1.5mm. I have tried various depths and it does change things if you go deeper.

Thanks for the tip, I was wondering if it would keep the temps down. I was gonna try it tomorrow in practice. I sat down and did some funky cuts with my brush cutter and am gonna see what they do.

I believe multiple people have posted that the Komodo is a higher reving motor than the C2 and needs to be geared accordingly...which is lower gearing than a C2.

For what its worth-I ran my new EA KD19t last night and it was as fast or faster than my EA C2, but at 4 teeth less than the C2 (1.21")!!!

I did run it two teeth less (1.12")than a C2 TWO RUNS and it was starting to make the comm reddish on the 2nd run. I ran it a third time at one less tooth (1.09") and it pulled the whole run, but it was done after the third run.

I rebuilt it, ran it two more times at 4-teeth less (1.06" to 1.08")than a C2 and might have been a tad undergeared, but it was still fast and the comm looks like I just broke it in.


My C2 I ran at 1.21" and it was one run and done and fell off a little harder at end of run. The KD seems to pull the whole pack till the battery finally dumps!!
