Default Which brushes?

Hi all, I am looking for advice on brushes to use for my Trinity monster pro stock 27t motor.
All I have used so far are the Trinity ones. Are their better brushes than these and what advantages would I get?
Or should I stick to the Trinitys?

Thanks Darren

Default Brushes

Darren,
Depends on the application. For Stock Touring Car, most folks over here use either "F" brushes or Trinity 4499's. Personally, I use "F"s, but you need to pay attention closely to gearing and rollout, other-wise you'll burn through them pretty quick. The other thing is to make sure the brush hoods are alligned properly.
Hope that helps.
Dan

Thanks for the reply Dan,
Sorry to sound stupid but what are the "F" brushes and who are they made by?

We have found that the Reedy 767 and eXpress motorsports X brushes work very good for us in our Monster motors. The different classes require different brushes, we race 1/12 4cell classes.

Finish Line or "F" brushes can be purchased from EAMotorspots. The link is in my Sig. F brushes are my brush of choice for stock and 19t Touring Car.
