Seems there are not to many tips in here...
So, let me offer what I do know

Keep is clean... simply put

Make sure your brushes are aligned.

When cutting the com. the smoother you get it the better. I use a Diamond lap on a freshly cut com.. (its my only speed secret)

most importantly... if you are running a touring car, its 9/10 driver so don't bother racing your car on the bench

What does it mean to have brushes aligned? Aligned to what?

aligned to each other.

another thing....

those braids that connect the brush to the endbell only takes a small amount of current. The main conduction point that supplies the juice to the brushes are the hoods... it's very important to clean the insides of the brush hood, where it meets the the brush... i've seen people maintain motors and not even look at these parts....

I don't know about that rating on the shunt. I did some tests, albeit not scientific, but what I did find is that when I hooked the dyno leads directly to the shunt the motors had the best results on the dyno. Now when I just tucked it under the brush hood where the spring rides the numbers where not as good. Then I went ahead and soldered the shunt to the hoods and the good numbers had returned. Take it for what it is worth. Everybody has his or her own preferences.

if i remember correctly, the braids are rated at around 10A.... the rest are handled by the endbell.....

but that's a good test as any....

as you said, take it for what it's worth, i say, every little bit helps....
