Ditto.

Kraig - Do you have an updated teaser picture for everyone? I think it might increase the drool factor.

ok, here is the latest version. This is probably as close to production as we are going to get. Still working out the cost.



If you look cloesly you can see the beveled edge.



Thoughts and comments are appreciated.

Make a hole on the two sides so we can use it for modified and stock motors. Maybe you could make it longer with a step so we can also use it for trinity P94 brush hoods.

Yeah those Kose tools are nice.

Dave, yes it will include the centering rod.

The handle is made out of aluminum. We could anodize it but I don't think we will, at least not at this time.

I don't think we will be doing the other hole for modified motors and these are the main reasons. With the maching of the hole the material of the bar tends to mushroom out. Then the bar will have to be flattened again to ensure the dimensions. Plus, with that hole the bar itself will become weak at that point thus allowing it to bend and maybe break because of the lack of material. If you look at the Kose tool you can see hardly any material for the standup brush hoods. Plus the new Reedy Modified Motors will have laydown brushes.

Proper brush hood alignment is when the brush is wearing like a U and not a J shape. What happens is that the brush shifts during the rotation of the arm. Thus you have to compensate for this by adjusting the brush hoods one at a time. So don't go into it thinking just because the brush hoods are aligned directly across from each other that everything is fine.

The idea for the P94 motors did come up and we are still discussing it.

Default Big Jim's Alignment Bar

Someone here mentioned earlier that Big Jim was coming out with a bar... here's the thread over on RCCARS.COM

http://www.rccars.com/forums/showthr...5&pagenumber=4

http://www.rccars.com/forums/attachm...s=&postid=6491

Brandon Rohde of Team Paradigm is marketing it, sells for $39.

Not trying to take anything away from Kraig, the tool looks great.

The only hold up right now is the price. I want to keep it as low as possible. The actual alignment bar will have a lifetime guarantee against defect from manufacturing and material defects. Basically I tried to break and bend the prototype I have here and I didn’t have any luck so if something happens to yours I will be in awe and will most likely replace it.

I will probably know more later on today and I will post the dimensions as well.
