Default 19 T Epic Binary Motor

I just recently got an Epic Binary 19t Motor, I was wondering what a good set-up is for it. Consisting of brushes and springs. Right now whatever came with the brand new epic is what i am running. Should i just keep running that or is there a better set-up?

Also what would be a good pinion gear for a 100t spur gear with the epic motor?

Thanks

Jon

JDXray,

The brushes that comes with the motor works pretty good, and with this particular motor, you have to make sure you find the right gear ratio. I gear mine around 7.6 with my Barracuda R2, and i get really good acceleration and top speed with the timing set at around 35 degrees, the brush wear was excellent too. When you're looking for replacement brushes, make sure they are the P-94 size

Alright i installed the Epic 19t in my Pro 4. As of now i have a 96 spur gear with a 31 pinion. Is that a good gear ratio?

I run mine timed at about 26 degrees with the dual-purple setup

The thing I like about Trinity's is they usually have a good spring combo already on there

I use whatever the highest-silver dualshunt brush is...off the top of my head I think its a 4383....I'll comfirm when I get home & look @ my brush list

Sounds like a good starting point. You might want to start with a 30T just to be on the safe side and then work your way up on the pinion gear from there. Take notice of where your car is topping off on the straight away
