Ski- You sure can get Axiom brushes. www.axiommotors.com
If you have to wait for shipping or working out a way to get them, run the 767's. They are widely available. I usually get 2 good runs out of them and have to cut the comm.

AE- I'm sponsored by axiom, are u? Just nice to meet some team drivers.

Guys just keep your motors fresh. If you use a 767 or 4499 you will be in the ballpark all the time. I spent a whole weekend working with about 20 of these monster stock motors and it really did not seem to matter what I did they always came out to being close. I found that the red positive spring and green negitive works just about every time.

Now to keep your motor fresh I found that you can get about 4-5 runs without turning the com. You simply remove the endbell screw and the little wire thingy and go in through that hole and use a fiberglass cleaning tool and clean the com. The most important part of this is not to touch the brushes just leave them alone. You may think this is crazy but just try it the motor actually gets better and the best run is usually the 3rd one.

I run for axiom too, sup fellow drivers. For most conditions red +, green - is the way to go. Purple/red works very well in sedan too.

Stephen, ready for foam sunday? Bring home another couple good finishes for axiom motors. Dude i got about 5-6 ppl hooked at Venture.

i hate to start an independant motor builder war, but the Paradigm 21521 laydown brush has been very convincing, not only in sedans but in 12th scale aswell. compared to 4499's, the 21521's have 1-2 watts more power, 1,000-2,000 more RPM and 5+ NM more torque on a robi dyno i had use of. i tested this theory on 4 different monsters, and all rang true.

ahahahahah...you call that good? Axiom brushes net 3-4 watts more than a 4499 ever could...easily. Torque and RPM are also significantly higher, and they last for a good 5 runs.

Are you guys talking about 767's? haha

Steve, stick with either red springs on both sides or purple on the positive and red on the negative. You really cannnot go wrong with any of these brushes they have listed here.

Its kinda funny

DO you really think Axiom or paradigm make their own brushes all they are is someone else's brush's relabled just like the motors.

Just stick with the 767 or the 4499 can't go wrong I agree with kraig completly.

I most likely won't be at trackside for racing for a while. I have decided to play with my 1/8 scale because that is the car that makes me smile from ear to ear even when things are going bad and I don't have to f-ck with brush's,springs,com's,batt's,charger's
and all the other crap that goes along with ele.

But yes I would like to hear your argument I am curious. I will be racing the norrca race with my 1/12 and stock foam sedan
