Read the thread.

Also, you didn't give any info either way, so it makes it hard to answer your question. What kind of track? Size? etc

XrayFK you right. I just reread that post. sorry just woke up.

I run on asphalt. we do use sugar water. it a small track but technical, not very flowing. our 19 turn mains is at the end of the day. I also run a mi2. I'm also still running 3300's, I do have 4200's on the way.

Thank for keeping me on my toes. Oh yeah I did read 90% of the thread. I was just curious if any one found that running on brush is better and I didn't noticed anyone mentioning which spring they were using.

Cheers

Not a problem
Use F-brushes for the most power, gear down a tooth or so though. Or you use Reedy 767s or Trinity 4499s. Most people like to spring on the harder side. Try a few setups and see what you like the most (power to brush life)

If you don't mind skimming the comm and replacing the brushes about every second run, use Hurricane gold brushes with a hole drilled in the face and use red springs.. Ballistic for a couple runs..

Rollout at about a 1.0... If you can't get it dead on, go under.

So.... I wanted to try one of these KD19's. No one had them in stock so I said I will just order the Tower... I order the pro-version.... Motor is strong as hell But...

I am guessing this is a .300 com size motor???

Who ever at Trinity is cuting these and preping them for retail sales needs to take it easy with the Com Cutting!!!!!! My com is .284, Brand new. SO I guess I got a half lifer! lol


Less is More!!!!

Second question.


I run on a small tight black top track. Maybe a 60 foot back stretch with a 30 foot sweeper.

Normally 19T is only about 1-2 teeth higher then stock It looks like with the KD I might be gearing it under stock?

I always get the non pro version and build up the motor myself. The new com is a rather egg shaped .300". I end up having to cut it to .285 just to get it round.

Actually the manufacture of the EPic motors retooled everything and now you just barely even have to cut the comm to get them "true". Most of the ones now are around .295-.297 after cutting. So they have made a HUGE improvement over there!!
