you need to be under 7.00 with a MONSTER on rubber to go FAST.

I usually run the Fantom 315 brushes with hard springs on the tight tracks and medium springs on large tracks.

If I'm not to picky I run 2-3 packs without cutting the com. But I use the com stick and a small fiberglass brush on the brushes. If I'm picky I true the com before every run and use the fiberglass brush on the brushes, then change brushes after 2 packs. This is when I'm racing. When practicing I run 8-10 packs before I do anything...

Default Monster gearing

Hey black kat, I run my monster pro at a 7.5 to a 7.9 at Hobbyworld and I have yet to burn up a motor, maybe you got a bad motor.

I was geared a bit on the high side AND ran it a few times in a row... Grasshopper status is fun to reflect upon

Kevin: I'm glad I didn't hurt the motor...Thankfully I got my speed control reset (again) before that main

yup, free.






























but mind you, im from the Philippines. (meaning it will cost more to send the can and endbell over, than buying a new motor.)

Stegger - I'd say start with a 24mm rollout and go from there.

rollout - (tire diameter in mm x 3.14) / Overall gear ratio
I calculated my rollout and it's 9.7(rounded up)?

(24mm x 3.14) / 7.8 = 9.7

I run in a fairly tight track.

Oppssss. I screw'd up. It's supposed to be "tire width".

Sorry about that.

DOMOisCOOL - So your rollout is 20.55 if you run rubber tires. I usually take the gear ratio to the second decimal place becuase when you run foam it you can make finer adjustments on your rollout.

I usually run Red springs, with either Reedy 767's, Trinity 4499, or Putnam greens. I have yet to try hurricane gold though. I heard they were pretty good. I am gearing at about 8.3 Final drive ratio with rubbers on a tight carpet track. It's just a nice balanced setup that I've never had any problems with power.

roll out is not affected too much when rubber tires are used right? basically,the computation is constant (i mean depending on the gearing). am i correct? what roll out would be good for a midsize technical track using an xray FOC, stock motor and 90 spur gear?

tanx guys.
