Anyone know where to purchase a replacement D5 endbell? I managed to melt the area that supports the bearing , and cannot find a place online that carrys them.

Thanks,
Jimmy

The D6 endbell should drop on(I'm not 100% sure). Just get rid of the rediculous heatsink they have on it.

the peak and orion motors that everyone saw at the Reedy I was told were the motors with the new endbells that allow smaller brushes that really get those motors running well. Unfortunatly they arent roar legal and they were also run in the open class which I believe that would be classified as cheating! So when you go out and get that new ORION or PEAK motor its not anything close to what was run at the Reedy.

I know they weren't running off the shelf stuff there. But what team is? You can't honestly think Reedy and Trinity are running the same arms and such that anyone can get off the shelf.

bigdog-Before the race we check with Fred and everything with the small brushes is fine. In the ROAR rule book page 29 section 5-45 it says the brush system can be modified and thats what we did. The entire Fantom team ran our of the shelf motors except for their own armatures and their motors were fast as well. It is very easy to take our standard brush and make it smaller if you have the correct tool which people were doing also.

jkerr0043-You are 100% correct with the fact that every team didnt run their off the shelf motors from different brush compounds to special winds.

Joe, can you elaborate on this small brush talk? Being that we live in the middle of nowhere we rarely get to see all the cool speed tricks. Hopefully our local shop will get their order of Hara and regular Touring versions in soon!!

People at the Reedy Race were narrowing the bottom half of the brushes. You have to leave the top half so it fits correctly in the brush tube. I talked to a few people that did this and they used a dremel with a cut-off wheel and narrowed it by rotating the brush on the wheel and trinity makes a brush station that will work the same way.

The brush is already round, they are just narrowing it. This is for the new Orion Revolution motor.

I thought you were talking about the other motors.
are they doing this for power or longevity to the v2.
If i heared correctly elswere they did this because of the heat. is this correct.

Yes, it is better in the heat and you also get more runtime.
