I use to use RacePrep comm drops on my Mabuchi and Johnson 540 motors. Make a very noticable difference for the first 2 minutes of a race in my experience.

i've used the gogo juice.....

I put in a brand new 19T motor e my comm wore a looooooot and a brush burnt itself up.....

I was wondering if the comm drops are crap or if the motor came with hung brushes.....

So I'm thinking that the gogo juice damaged my motor....

Does anybody know if I can use the gogo juice at least for breaking in new brushes or this stuff simply doesn't worth???

Most of the pro-motor builders Iv'e watched dont use anything to break brushes in.......If I recall,Big Jim sometimes would use a drop of mineral spirits on the com for break-in.....I tried it myself a few times and diddn't notice any difference than without,so I stopped......Hey Salvadori, since you brought up go-go juice,have you or anyone else here tried the go-go juice brand bushing lube......the bottle I got had about the same consistancy of elmers glue.......I E-mailed fantom and asked them if I somehow got a bad(extra thick) batch and how when I put it in any of my (stock)bushing motors they were noticably slower, and while on the dyno the amp draw would go up 2 to 3 amps minimum from friction.....they just e-mailed me some BS about how many championchips they've won in the last 5 years

I use bearing oil from fantom....but it works well....

anyway, I'll make a test running an old motor dry and with gogo juice, just to be sure that this stuff is nothing but crap.....

What a corny name for a comm drop.

If I ever get to market a new comm drop I'm gonna call it Jism Drops..

For what it's worth: the motors that won GT1 and F201 classes at the recent TCS races held in Aliso Viejo were both tuned using gogo juice for comm drops.
