see for yourself...

glad I dont have to change brushes every 2 runs in my mods now.

previously I used Actron and quazar brushes...2 runs and they were toast when used for competition.

work it out...40+ runs on C.S, compared to 20 sets of brushes...

performance has been identicle ..the car is just as quick

I can only say the same about the powerMax silver brushes.
Im using them quite a while now in my Reedy Ti 9x2 and Fantom 9x2 (for 12th sclae)and they work great: maximum output and lasting very long.
They are also great for touring cars.

For me this is one of the best if noit THE best brush Ive ever used. Gotta love it !

I also get 40-50 runs between com cuts with the CS high silver powermax brushes. They are great!

Lots of power and long life, almost to good to be true...

I find it hard to believe that you can run 40-50 packs without cutting the comm, at least without losing performance. However it might be possible to use the brushes for 40-50 packs before replacing them.

Keep in mind though, that here in Europe we have a 12 turn motor limit.

Yes, but the brushes are much easier on the comm than quasar brushes.

Just buy them from the CS electronics site. I easily purchased mine last night with my credit card.

To all of you that don't believe it....!

Well, all the people that have tried these brushes say exactly the same. These brushes are amazing, but it depends on how you set up your motor... I always put on superhard springs and lots of timing, and yay(!!) I'm ready to go for the next 40 packs...

@Airwide: Hur e lget? Remember we have the 12-turn limit in Norway too, these brushes are insane even with a bit milder modifieds... It's said to be great for stockracing too.....

@Hobbipro: Ever heard of the Trinity Brush factory? Anyways, some racer at your local track probably has a brush serrator, ask him to help you cutting the brushes to laydown...

Hi Martin!
I know you have the same rule in Norway. What I meant was that people might not be able to get the same lifetime out of the brushes if they are running 8 turn motors.
