Default Hi Dave,

I ran a Katana SL last week and it was ballistic!!! i geared it 6.3 for the first heat and for the 2nd heat i geared 6.58, did better overall times with 6.58 gearing. broke the lap record at our local track too

i thought the SL (laydown ver.) would be a torque motor but it seemed to top out well rpm wise on the straight, (equal to the t-maxx at least). Question: what type brushes come with the motor? coz they are very good!!, only complain is is that as the serrations wear out, there seem to be a slight loss in performance aswell. Reedy 766 (with hole) are the best laydown brushes i've tried so far, i wonder if it would work for this motor too....any comments dave?

The SL really has a lot of RPM your geared it right with the 6.5... on my SS i have geared it some times at 6.9 because this thing cranks out almost 39000rpm!!!

as far as the brushes go.. the are based off a atlas silver sprint They are Very good brushes also when the face wears out your losse a bit off the top but gain a bit more in torque so gear up after that happens...
no coment on the Reddy brush...but I`m using a bunch of FUkuyama Prototypes in some of my laydown motors with very good results across the board

Default jdm,

thanks, will keep an eye out for those atlas sprint brushes, also will try gearing up with the stock brushes now that the serrations have worn. i'll probably cut and use the same brushes till i find the atlas's.

Wow!! 39,000 rpm...did not know 23t motors revd that high

those fuks brushes out on the market yet??

Please PM what you did to prep the motor and anything that might improve performance.

well, i think the rules state that any brush/spring combo may be used, but prolly no timing mods, or arm swaps.
