Hi Mike, if you have no luck...try Metro Hobbies in Melbourne...they stock them and can most likely ship to you.

btw..these brushes are amazing..very heat resiliant...and last 40+ runs in a 9x2 mod (Ti fantom)..without performance dropoff!

I love em!

I was getting 4 runs per com cut yesterday...motor tuned for max performance.

Is this a joke or are you serious?

Are you talking about the powermax Hard, dual shunt or high silvers? The high silvers are dam expencive. 9.90 euro a pair...

Michael,
I've dealt with CS directly through their website(bought a spacecharger a few years back) and they are pretty on to it as far as sending things to NZ.

Yes those are what KingG was talking about. They do last a long time. I have one in an 11T motor and they have survived at least 20 runs to date even with hard overgearing. The wear on the comm is not as bad due to the fact they do not burn up and the comm wear is even. 1 pair costs about AUD$24 but have more than made up for their cost given the number of runs they have survived.

What are the best brushes to get in Laydown form???

I tried to get Silvers but they don't seem to make em in laydown form. Its not for a hugely modded motor, just a 19T Peak Dynasty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

f.alonso: Buy the CS High silvers and find someone with a Trinity brush factory or something to cut them to laydown..

On GM motors, with their hardest springs, you can probably get up to 50 runs before truing... I'd like to keep it down to 30 or something...

itchynads - Dam that's sweet. If I used them for stock I'd save a bucket load of cash.

Anybody know a CS dealer in the US. The CS website sucks.

40 runs? I think that sounds very exaggerated.... I won't believe it until I see it.

I'm testing the brushes right now and so far I have run 24 or 25 packs on the same set of brushes. Last time I trued the comm and inspected the brushes were after 15 packs. I'll report back after I've rebuilt the motor again.
