Default CS Electronics

Does anyone know of an online store in the US where they have CS-Electronics products?

More specifically the CS-Powermax high silver content brushes (T0605).

the CS-Powermax high silver content brushes (T0605) are the best brushes i ve ever used! they last more than 50 runs !!!!
they reduce comm wear, and they have enough power to compete with some 5 run brushes
downside: they are expensive.. but they have a very high silver content
check out their onlineshop : http://www.cs-electronic.com/shop/shop.php

Yes, I've seen how well they work and I tried a pair myself yesterday. They are awesome!

The downside is as you say the price. The price where I live is equivalent to USD $19 for one pair!!!

These things are usually a lot cheaper in the US so I was hoping to find them in a US based online store.

Me too, I have tests of several motors on a Robi Dyno that show incredible improvements with these brushes.

On top of that they don't wear the comm and they last forever.
The comm is skimmed in one pass after 8-10 runs (a very small cut indeed)!!!
One of the reasons why I don't feeel tempted by the durability of brushes on the new Orion/Peak motors is because I get more runs from a pair of brushes than they claim, with CS on my motors.

I had a Reedy 12x1 that used the original 729 pair and just ONE pair of CS till the end (that's AMAZING)

On the track all the motors feel more punchy on curve exit (this is consistent with 15% improvement in average on torque)

On the other hand, some "motor gurus" say they are for toys and bashers (???). One of them is a REAL motor guru of world fame...
Go figure...

OleC, you can get the CS brushes from Sweden. They are cheaper here than in Norway (89 Sek = about 10-11$). Check out www.autopartner.se, they have them in stock.
