Ran my first one over the dyno today. It picked up about 5- 8 watts after I cut the comm and reamed the bushings a bit. (nice bushings) It has a little more low amp power and a little less high amp power than a good cobalt. With some different brushes and some spring tuning this thing could go. The brushes are like iron and need lots of break in, as well you have to mark them to ensure they aren't put in 180 ^ out. I found some sort of gunk on the arm when i first tore it apart on the comm end. This was right by the bushing and it looked to be some sort of coating or grease, it came off with a little motorspray and rubbing. It will be a decent motor if brushed motors stay around at all.

Wow, this thread fell off the map...

I said I'd post if I grabbed one, and I finally did just two days ago. The shop had no brushes or springs, so I ran it straight out of the package with just a quick break-in and no further tuning. Several folks suggested to gear taller than a CO27, so I ran 2 teeth higher and no other changes to the car. Managed to pick a few tenths a lap over what I'd been running with the Co27, so no complaints power wise. I haven't run it on the dyno yet, but the motor definitely feels like the best Reedy stocker yet.

Something I haven't seen mentioned anywhere, and the main reason I decided to buy one was that when I felt it it seemed light... I weighed it and then weighed my CO27 and the Stockstar was 13 grams lighter... I removed the shunt screws and eyelets from mine and soldered the shunts and mine was then 14 grams lighter than the CO27. That's a half ounce in weight saving just for a motor swap, pretty significant in a 1/12 chassis. I've been known to spend more $$ for less weight savings, so I'm pretty stoked at this point... power as good or maybe a wee bit better than my best Co27, and it will probably get better with some tuning, and a half ounce off the car, all for $29.95...

i dont understand how team brood can tune these motors to their maximum with no real brushes other than the stock ones available...unless they are milling out the correct brush sizes from a larger chunk or something. Some enlightening on that would be nice.

Anyways, i ran mine as long as i could, was forced back to a co27 after 3 places i tried had no brushes and i had no time to order online. The motor at this point had about 12-15 runs on it. It did, however, propel me to qualify 4th in my class in the A-main at the JBRL this weekend, which was cool but the co27 pushed me to 2nd IN the main haha. I really like this new motor, gonna have to order some brushes for it soon though.

well brood can experiment with brushes and springs and cuts of all combinations with trinity (and other more standard type motors)

stockstar doesnt have any real tuning options yet lol. Even the bushings are different and i dont think they can be polished like regular motors. Most i think they can do is diamond-true the comm and maybe play with the springs a little lol.

At this point all that can really be done is tweaking of the springs and weeding out the duds. I am sort of surprised by the motor, it has shown to be pretty strong...

We'll have springs and brushes soon, but from what I've seen you can get at the very minimum 10 runs out of the factory brushes. They seem to be pretty hard and hold up to heat really well.

784 is the part # for the brushes and 788 is the part # for the stiffer spring. Both are available.
The brushes are a long wear brush, they should last awhile.
