That would be great for someone to try.

Anyone here with a V2 that would be interested in giving it a shot? Probably better to use a peak or orion arm as it may be more compatible? Not really sure so you guys who got'em feel free to speak up!

Oscar Jansen, yesterday at the track I was running at, was assembling dozens of V2-based stockers for a big offroad race in germany in a few days with handouts. Hopefully some german guy will stop by after the race and tell us how it was.

I have a 9x2 V2 that I run in my Losi XXX-S. I now have about 20 Runs on the brushes and can probably get about 10 more runs on them. These are the Endurance Brushes. I have skimmed the Comm once since I found it is out of round. The last time I raced I had better lap times then I had when the Motor was brand new.

The only reason I run mod now is becuase of this motor. It sucks to have to throw away a set of brushes after 2 runs and cutt the comm after every other run. My friend has over 30 runs on his 10x1 motor and the motor is still running strong and he has not cutt his Comm yet.

Thats great to hear about this mod motor. I may have to look into picking one of these up.

What is the starting comm size and the lowest you can cut to?

So far the enduro brushes seem to offer great power and last long? Any info on the sprint brushes?

I have seen some drivers using a V2 endbell on Reedy Ti Motors and these were flying. Much faster and more runs out of them than the original Ti.

Sprints does offered more power.

However at the local track, Team Orion's Factory driver told me to run the Enduro brush in my 10X1 Hara's edition. Because the Enduro generates less heat - therefore you can time it a tad higher and gear the car up just a tad.

I'm curently run my 10x1 Hara's edition in my 1:12 car with Enduro brush and 5 degree of timing and my roll out is around 34~34 mm/rev. Same motor I ran max timing for my Sedan.

The motor seem to last a long time when installed in 1:12, so far I have not taken it apart or notice the performance drop off yet since the last cut

Guys. Need some help here.

I am planning to get a V2 Hara Edition 10 double for my T1.

Can anyone recommend a starting gear ratio?

The longest straight at my local track is around 170'.

What is the original brush inside the motor?

Is it the sprint brush or the enduro brush?

Thanking in advance
