Default Stock Motor Brushes

Hey guys, i was at my lhs not to long ago and i asked for some advice on what brushes work well in stock motors, i was given these variable timing brushes. Are they worth running? They have a cut across the brush face, dividing it into 1/ and 2/3 portion (roughly). If i were to run these, which way should the cut face? i currently run reedy 767's among others, so is it worth using these? or shoudl i fob them off onto my friends motor :-)

The larger cut out part is the trailing edge of the brush

Have you tried the new Trinity Crosscut brushes? Anything to report on these? I have been using them, but haven't been happy with them -- thought they were basically 4499s with diagonal serrations, but...

Also, heard of using 767s on positive with 797s (serrated with bullet hole) on negatives. Anyone have any success with this combo?

Thanks.

I dont think that the cut brushes are legal at most tracks. They basically advance the timing on stock motors, and will give more RPM's because of that.

Has anyone tried the Niftech brushes made for a specific comm size?

I have tryed the cross cut brushes they work really well but the cross cuts only last one and a half runs so i cant see the point



Timed brushes are roar legal but I dont think Integy timed brushes are the fastest brushes around I would run Putum green/Blue or reedy 767 brushes

The way I understand it 766 is more of a torque brush with mimimal wear on the comm.

767 is more of an RPM brush with more comm wear. I use 767 almost exclusivly. I do not re serate them thought, I seem to get more power full face.
