If a "kid" is smart enuf to use a regular lathe OR is smart enough to do 30% of his own stuff in this hobby, chances are great he can run a drill and etch a comm. How many 9 year olds cutting comms? In fact, how many are smart enough to know that when the car is slowing down, its time for a brush and comm change? If they are smart enough to figure this out, chances are great they either know how to run a lathe OR see this as the poor man's lathe and LAUGH at this thread. Man, some of you dudes mustve stood WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY in the back of the sense of humor line.

Speed tip: When using the cheap comm lathe, use the xacto to cut grooves into the comm. That way the serrated brushes will fit into the grooves and you will create a larger contact patch. It will turn a stock motor into a 19t guaranteed!!!!!

thanks

1 I use (er I um) used to use a comm stick untill I went Brushless.
2 Dont over gear and the comm will last longer.
3 dont motorspray after every run it just makes the comm wear down faster.
4 and the best advice is use the high silver $15.00 brushes one set will last a whole season of racing and they are easy on the motors comm, Saving you $$$ in the long run.
5 Buy a bru$hle$$ system and

Razzor!

Whether you support it or not advise like this is good for our hobby! It gives kids something to do instead of watching their dad's work on the their car or watching them go round and round the track! Exacto blades, sand paper, and power drills are all safe hobby tools if used with the appropiate protection.

Absolutely nothing wrong with kid's building rip! And this method yields some serious horspower!
