Hey rod_b

Integy tire truer, have you trued 1/8 foam with it yet??? Was wondering if it would do it without burning up the motor??? I've been thinking about getting one of these, because I mostly true 1/12 foam/rubber, but once in awhile I need to true some 1/8 foam.

I had an Ofna truer, but the Airlines lost it, along with all my Nitro stuff last week when I came back.


Thanks!!!

bgotori - No, I haven't actually tried it but I was thinking about picking one up when (SpeedTech) Steve told me that it was pretty good. I know my Hudy halts the motor when I try to shave off too much with just regular touring tires so I'm sure this one will also. I guess that's just true in general. If it's a 720 sized motor (which I don't think it is) it may have some decent torque.

You like the 767s better than the 4499s?

I have tried putnams. green and blues with rd/grn springs. Iwore the serrations down and narrrowed the brushes a little (nothing precise) and makes as good power as with full faced 767s with rd/rd.
I can't speak for all motors, but for this particular monster, the 767s didn't work for it and the putnams did. I have two other monsters that use 767. All three were over 100 watts at 20amps on my old cs dyno.

Default Off topic for a few

DaveW;

Wider Rims 26mm vs 24mm. The sidewalls on the Tire is now mounted 2mm futher out so the insert isn't a well supported side to side (thus the squirm). I haven't done this for a long time now as it's easier to buy matching rims. I really haven't tried inch-ups yet on any of my cars, Maybe with the next set of Tires.

Guys;

I personally was not impressed whe using 767's in my Monsters. The 4499 Brushes seem to make more power longer. I just ordered some Putnam's, but it will be a few weeks before I get to try them in one of my MS motors. (got a new Matrix V10 to try)

My experience with Putnam brushes. They work well as long as you dont use comm drops for anything other than break in. Both Bulit and Zubaks soften the brush too much, and half way through the run the motor will gum up. There are some drops i got from a guy in Florida at the Snowbirds... its yellow, and the name escapes me... but it was the most consistent out of all the drops i have used. I have tried blue, red and green putnams with many spring combinations. I have had a red Putnam brush on the + and a 4499 on the - and had great repetitive results. But nothing has seemed to beat TRI 4503 on the + and TRI 4499 on the -. I know this will not work all of the time...but it is a combo thats works more often than not.

Popsracer... when you used a 26mm rim with 24mm tires... you didnt use 26 mm inserts? That might have been the problem all along...i can see why that would have given you alot of squirm! Pick up some YOK138GS (24mm), and the firm (not hard) molded YOK insert (26mm), and add them to Proline's inch up dish rims (26mm). I promise you, youll love it!

Default DaveW;

I really no longer have a track where the 138G's will work. Everything I race on lately is slurry sealed asphalt and Sorex's seem to be the most consistant.

Thanks,

I guess Todd, Eric A, myself and the other Putnam drivers are doing it wrong then...
