Hi my track has some fast straights but then theres sun tight bends towards the end.

What springs and brushes do you reccomend and where to get them in the UK.

Thanks

Putnam brushes work very very well in a the Monster motors, standard springs and Green Putnam brush on +ve and Blue Putnam brush on -ve.

Schumacher in the UK sell them.

I like Reedy 767s or Fantom 315s. I think they both work really well on the monster, try a slot in them too, better rpm and less amp draw and friction. I like it this way.

That depends on so many factors, ambient temperature, track size, grip level, driving style, how free the car is.......

On a pretty big outdoor track we gear at around 6.0, on a tight indoor track you would certainly fry it running this high.

I have gone down as far as 5.7 with the monster and it came back almost cold, mind you it was very hard to drive because you had to be so smooth to maintain your speed because otherwise you get bogged down and it takes time to wind out.

But I would not try anything that low unless you sure you can drive the car extremely smoothly and the car is extremely efficient.

I have geared it at 6.2 and 6.3 very successfully and it comes back cold, but again smooth throttle control helps.

For tight tracks I would go for somewhere in between 6.9 to 7.3.

Hey Luie,
My Monster screams with the supplied brushes but I have heard the Reedy 767 brushes are a good choice at the first change. There is also a thread dedicated to the Monster Stock if you look back a few pages

Both should work exactly the same, since they're both the exact same brush(Troy buys 'em from Reedy in bulk & relabels them, then sells some to smaller companies who do the same, he told me about it a couple of years ago during the brush shortage)....

I have had awesome luck with my MS running 767's with purple/red springs. By far the fastest stock motor I own.

Yeah I know. A Fantom Team driver over here told me about it. I just thought it was a good thing to know if you couldn't find any reedy or fantom brushes.

I recently changed my brushes to 767 and hooked it up to my LRP pulsar comp, at 4V, it is pulling in 6amps. What should I be looking for more amps or less amps?
