Default EPIC Binary2

Hi all. I use the Binary2 Pro Stock motor for racing, and I was looking to get some opinions on what brush/spring combos would work best. I am running on a medium-sized asphalt track. Anyways, for brushes, should I use the Reedy 767's and 766's, or something else? Like the EPIC brushes?
EPIC Stock Power Brush
or
EPIC Stock Super Silver Brush
And what about springs? EPIC has some packages for racing as well.
EPIC Hi-Rev Stock Spring Set
or
EPIC Hi-Torque Stock Spring Set
Thanks!
Oh, and what size bearings will replace the bushings?

your not supposed to use bearings. all stock motors use bushings , it would be illegal to run bearings if you run by the rules.

If they allow quad mag then bearings should be the least of their worries

I should propose this to my race director....Only thing is if they say that it could be misinterpreted and it'd be simpler for everyone just to say ROAR legal or nothing

Also, has anyone ever heard of a stock motor called the Matrix Pro Stock? I have the can and it has ball bearings, and was considering to swap it with the Binary2 can. So which would be better: the quad-magnets in the EPIC? or the ball bearings in the Matrix? Thanks.
