No Bigdog... you are probably doing it right. That was why i posted that as MY experience. I never seem to have good luck with Putnam brushes. Maybe i should have placed a disclaimer before my statement. LOL Most of the guys i know have always had good luck with Putnam brushes, mostly in 4 cell 19t oval... but if i ever add them to my motors for TC (mostly 19t) i inevitably have motor problems. I will have tons of HP for the first half of the race... and then the motor drops off! So i am sure i am doing something wrong along the way.

I was wondering what would the best brushes be for all round performance and wear. The ones in there now are three run brushes and they are stuffed. I would like to get ones that last a while without replacing. Im thinking along the lines of Orion 10 run brushes because im not a very serious racer that needs the fastest. Thanks alot

Get a comm stick and clean the brushes off. The brushes that come with the Monster Stock are the 4499 and they should not wear that quick

Another good way to clean brushes is with a Qtip sprayed with a bunch of motorspray. It is not as abrasive as a comm stick and you an actually see all the gunk coming off of the brush as you clean it. Just my 2 yen

I haven't worn a pair of Brushes out yet in any of my Motors. Been going at LEAST 12 runs before skimming the Com. Last time only took .002 to clean it up and the brushes looked brand new except for the serrations. I usually end up changing them trying to find more power.
Just my experiences anyways.

They weren't the originals, they where orion 3 run brushes, but would those 4499 be good ones to put back in?

Default MS Brushes

The #4499's are what Trinity uses in the Pro versions of the MS. According to others, they seem to keep producing good power longer than some others.

Does anyone know the Silver % of the Trinity #4499 Brushes? Can't find it listed anywhere.

Thanks,

I am curious if you guys have experimented with other brushes as well.

Have you tried the Race Pret "H cut" brushes, and are they any good?

How about some of the new reedy brushes (stock)?

Does anyone remember the brushes that were a semi hard brush with a squarish cavity, and they had a copper/reddis colored shunt. I remember those brushes being SUPER FAST. But apparently they are not made anymore. I am not talking about a drill hole either.

Niftech made some like that... www.niftech.com... they list alot of brushes, cavity as well, but no pix to be sure what they look like. But i remember seeing in a Niftech catalog, pictures of brushes that had a square cavity in them... and took up most of the face of the brush. Its been a while... but im pretty sure it was them. You can e-mail Niftech for any more info once you are on the site.

Default Putnam Brushes in a Monster Stock

Guys;

I installed some Putnam Green/Blues in my MS today and Dyno tested them on my Robi.
So far they have produced the best numbers I've seen in any of my Monsters. They definately like a Red/Green spring combo were as the Trinity #4499's made best power with a Red/Red spring set.
See how the Motor does at the Track this weekend.

On the Axiom website, it says that the #1202 12% Full Face Serrated Lay down Stock Brush ( 6 Serrations ) are the same as the Reedy 767. My question is in what way is it the same? As in "exactly the same?!"
