I haven't tried the Yok 23t but have run the different Tamiyas a bunch. I found that the good ol' 4499 are pretty decent. I tried the F brush and it needs more break in but was better later in the runs. The 767 was good and consistent but didn't quite have the punch I wanted. Then I tried one set of 769 and then I was bummed I didn't have any more. They were everything I wasnted out of those 23t Tamiya motors. The 769 is the same compound as the 767 but with a hole drilled in them. I drilled out a couple of 767 and they were close but not the same. Didn't have the right size drill bits at the track. Let us know what worked after the race. Enquiring minds want to know

I suggest using the Trinity XXX brush, that is what I will be running. With the probability of hot weather and tall gearing, I think these brushes are going to work the best. Now, as for what springs.....?????

In our testing we have found the XXX's to be the most consistent.
