i run the dynasty and the stock brushes are good but they make a sprint brush that get better power. Start with the pro tuned motor. Reedy 767 work i've heard but i use peaks brushes. I use the springs that come with the pro tuned motors. Good luck with the motors i realy like them.

Trinity #4499 work well along with Trinity Purple springs on both sides.

Be aware that at least for the 'Element', there are laydown AND stand-up brush versions.

I have personally only tried the laydown brush version. Very torquey, you can expect to Gear up 3-4 pinion teeth over a Monster Stock.

we have used the laydown version, really torquey motor, lots of power. You should be quite happy with it.

If possible, run the laydown version. I'm not aware of a stand-up brush version though. Orion red springs and sprint brushes work really well, I'm sure you will be happy!
