On your D6's, are you running the P94 brushes or regular standups?

I've read somewhere that the quasars will kill the comm if they overcook, more than most other brushes.
Is there any truth in this?

I have tried a lot of different brushes on my mods now but no one is working better than the CS high silver powermax brushes. I think I'm gonna quit experimenting with brushes now, there is just nothing that can compare with brushes that give that much power and at the same time last forever.

Andrew Swanson-

1. Greg Hodapp's motor threw a wind in the 7th final. Basically everyone at the race had some kind of motor issue at one time or another. Thats just a problem when running low winds.

2. The wires that came off a few peoples motors were due to the speed controls getting too hot.

3. Our motors have proven that they are awesome in power/ longlife for off-road and on-road.

ok thanks.
did you tune all the orion/peak motors the same or were they slightly different?
also since orion and peak are the same company could a peak sponsored driver use orion and advertise orion and peak equipment?
inthe uk theres two different importers even though there both the same company!.
whats your feedback on this?

Peak and Orion are two separate US corporations.

Greg Hodapp's motor did blow up and it is a shame it did, he was leading his race and if he had held on to the win that race he would have won the title. This is the risk we ran with running low turn motors.

Not everone had motor problems. Surikarn, Hara, or myself had no motor problems in practice or racing.

Some wires have come unsoldered. It is due to overdriving, binding drivetrains, incorrect gear ratios (ask Greg about this), and defective ESCs, not motor failure.

We as a team are always testing new ideas. Smaller brushes have some advantages and we utilized that. It is no different than cutting the leading and/or trailing edges of a standard brush. I ran "cut" brushes as far back as 1985, the concept is not new.

The reason we ran 7 turn motors is because the V2 design allowed us to. More power and more speed with the same run time. Ask the drivers who were passed on the straight, or were passed in the last 30 seconds of a race who had the advantage.

but isnt it the same man who tunes both motor companys?
due to the patents does orion have to pay peak for using the v2 endbells?or vice versa who ever own the patents or are peak and orion both own the patents?
i thought they were the same company?
