Has anyone run Trinity 4505 brushes? I bought a motor from someone (hardly used) and it comes with these brushes.

Default monster stock gearing

for a monster stock gearing, for a tight indoor track you want it about 8.0 and for a more open indoor track you want about a 7.5

Are the 4505's the ones with the cross serrations? I never really cared for those too much. I do liek the brush that is the same compound but just standard serrations. The serrations seemed really shallow, and I like running the motors with the serrations still in the brush. To my understanding, sharp edges transfer electricity better (serrations kinda help with that ).

Yeah. They're cross cut serrated.

The serrations are there to ease the break in also, I would think it'd be better to have cross cut serrations during break in because you use the whole area of the comm.

From Trinity Brushes Magazine Ad:

Part Number: RC4505
Face: C
Name: Cross Cut 99 Plus
Silver Comparison: (Highest along with the 99 plus regular)
Use/Characteristics: Jim's (Jim Dieter) choice for serious stock racing, angled serrations keep comm cleaner longer between truing.

My experience with the 4505 or 4503 (both use the "99" compound, different serations) is that they are just a "tad" faster then either the Fantom 315 or Reedy 767, but require much more attention to com wear and carbon build up.

I believe the Fantom 315 and Reedy 767 are the same brush.

DOMOisCOOL - I've tried the 4505 cross cuts in my monster. Faster then 767's and e's but only good for the life of the serrations imo. Took ages to break-in compared to putnams. In two runs the serrations were shot. Putnams gave better power, the serrations lasted 6 runs and they broke-in very quickly.

I've since thrown the used 4505 brushes in my binary and they don't seem too bad at all. But I forgot to break them in before a main, after a cut and it made the car undrivable, stutter'd all over the place.

i just bought my Monster and i'm 'thinking' about running a 88t spur with a 21t pinion on a tight technical track with a 40' back straight. i don't understand gear ratios and how spur/pinion combos work YET but i'm self-taught and a decent learner so all if any suggestions are welcomed. Oh, i'm running the XXX-s RTR w/ some hop-ups

Rubber or foam? If rubber, you may want to run less teeth on the pinion for the monster. I think a 21 on a tight track would fry your monster. Just check what everybody else it running at your track for the monster and run that.
