Smile Best Brushes for Stock Motor

I have a Epic X Stock motor, and want more performance out of it for racing. Changing the brushes and truing the comm is the way to do it. My question is what kind of brushes should i use?? I have seen some of the Trinity silver laydown stuff, but from what i have heard those are made for longitivity rather than power. Does any one have any suggestions on a really good set of brushes for a stock laydown motor? Also i am using just oil for the bushings on the endbell and the bottom of the can, what does everyone else use?? Thanks

I still like the "F" brushes or Reedy 767s.

The X-Stock motor is a high RPM motor designed for oval racing. I just began testing it, but I would recommend Reedy 767 brushes, and Trinity green/green springs dyno'd to 6.3 ounces (+/-). Oil works just fine for the brass bushings.

Use f brushes or hurricane gold brushes.You will only get about 2-4 good runs out of them before they drop off.Hurricane gold brushes will get you more life at about the same power.The website is www.teamhurricane.net
Hope this helps

X-stock will be dialed for touring car i think, definately for 12th scale!

Sedan=F Brush, Purple +, Red -
12th-F Brush, Green +, Green -

But depending on the track size and corners, might be better to have a CO27

This track would be dialed for teh X-Stock(My track)

i just bought two pairs of 767 Reedy brushes today at my local hobby shop. what brand makes this "F" brush you are talking about. is it really that much better than the 767 Reedy's? i want the best set up for a race this weekend, its a larger more high speed track which is why im going with the higher RPM motor X Epic. any suggestions???

at 2 volts the fbrushes make 1-1.5 more amps then teh 767's. F brushes hold thier serations longer. Finish Line makes the brushes

what car do you have, what spur gear do you run and what size are your tires? Foam or RUbber racing?

I wouldnt sweat it too much. There is more time to be made up in your driving than by brush selection in stock
