Default Orion Element 19T V2 Spec Questions

I've been running the above motor in my TA05 at a FDR of around 7.2 to 7.5 (rollout of between 25 to 26.50 approx) on a flowing track with medium grip and rubber tires, and I'm very pleased with it so far, but would always like more from it.

I'm wondering if I could run this motor at even lower FDR of around 6.00 to 6.50......is this possible with this motor?

Also, I'm wanting to change the brushes, but unsure of what would be the best brush to use....want good performance, but do like something to last more then a handful of runs before having to change.

Any information would be appreciated

i guess you can always try.
i run my komodo dragon pro spec 19t at FDR 5.7, i have to true the comms every 2 round and change the brushes every 3-5 rounds. i only do this during club racing.
if it's just for bashing or practicing, stick with your ratio. if want more power, u might want to look at a lower turn motor instead.

On a very large track I geared it up to a 5.14, try 5.6 and go from there.

Sprint non serated brushes and the MR 10 coil springs, break them in for 300 seconds at 2V.
