Default Brushes and Springs for Reedy Kr 12x2 motor

I just bought a new Kr 12x2 motor. Does anyone knows what brushes and springs I should buy for my Reedy Kr 12x2 motor? Some suggested that I should use trinity red spring for POS and greed spring for NEG side of my motor. I'll use this motor mainly for club race. Thanks!

I use Reedy 766s in mine...I'm pretty happy with them.
When all else fails, aim for the quarter panel.

What type of car will you power with your Kr?

I have read over at other forum (Big jim) that the KR work best with 766 with Trinity Purple Spring, timing should be around 12-15 degree.

actually they work better with 767s in my experience. good wear and better power. the t-purples (with the neg spring bent slightly soft) or equivalent are the way to go. if you dont have those, try to bend the postive spring 180 degs and the neg spring to a bit less than 180. i wouldnt go over 15 deg timing. 18 max but start out with 15. thats what works for me, hope it works for you as well.
