Cain- Use the hard springs for 4wd.

Bob Barry- Sounds like the motor was undergeared.

Is there a difference between the old can and arm and the new can and arm in the New Peak Dynasty v2 19turn? I know the endbell design is different,just want to see if the arm is completely different.Also what brushes/springs will come with this particular motor? I am contemplating just buying the endbell conversion alone for my older style dynasty. Would it perform similarly?

I did my maintenance on the motor as I figured a quick once over is a good thing to do before my race sessions.

I noticed that taking out the spring is a pain in the butt. The instructions that Peak provides are kind of vague. Anyone have recommendation on this?

I got the motor apart and could tell the brush on one side was hung up. really gritty. I spent some time cleaning out the hood pretty good, I am thinking a tool for this specifically would be great. I got my fiber comm stick to work but I would prefer a true tool.

I rebuilt and reinstalled everything and the power increase was VERY noticeable.

I read that you can take some cotton and put it behind the brushes in the hood to help keep dust out. I did this just in case.

I hope to have a better experience this time.

Main issue with these motors that I hear for offroad is the brush hang.

Is Orion going to offer a service to put new brush tubes on the V2 endbells? I have 2 endbells that are unuseable and I hate to keep popin down $60. With the xxx-s it seems that there is not enough side protection for the endbell that my old TC3 had...

Thanks in advance, and see you at VORR....

Joe--What version of the V2 would be best for 1/12 on carpet. Or is there even a difference other than the color of the end bell.

from what i have been told, i would go with the Touring version... that is, if you run onroad.

the reg modified would be better suited for off road, i think... smoother powerband, due to different web size on the arm.

dontfeelcold-The Hara Edition will be the one you want to go with.

Adam Hartzell-The modified version will be the best. This has the 5mm arm which is very efficient and still has good power.
