We Americans must be nuts...1 run on brushes, throw em out cut it and put in new ones.

I want to hear more about these brushes and if anyone knows if they can be had over on the otherside of the pond. Thanks.
Like i said i outqualified a pro team driver who wins nationals in the uk, so his car is always quick. The cs brushes are widely used in over here, by club and national drivers.
I tried a back to back test with the cs brushes and the std brushes that come on a monster pro, i could'nt notice a difference. In fact i actually went fractionally slower with the std brushes but i can't say that it was the brushes that made me slower.
If you can get hold of them (either cs or lrp, i'm pretty sure they're the same thing) give them a go. Don't expect them to be any better than a normal brush but they won't be any worse and they will last for ages.

I just like the fact they last longer then a run. To bad we can't get the rest of the cool stuf LRP has over here.

It is a shame that much of the other LRP stuff hasnt made its way over to the US...their Comm Lathe looks awesome, i mean looks arent everything but still....in no way does this relate to LRP, but Radio Control Car Racer is expensive... 8.49 is quite a lot, but it is a good magazine

I tried that awhile ago because I was curious if they were going to carry the odorless traction compound. They just import the ESCs and recievers as the rest of the product line can be seen as Reedy.

As for the CS site my German is very poor, I know Jager, that's about it. Spanglish isn't much better. So is there a site in English that you can order the LRP stuff from.

Also has anyone over on that side of the earth used the LRP "odorless" traction compund. Just how odorless is it?

Thanks

Well that makes sense. And I am taking it that these are all stand up brushes that you are cutting to be laydowns. So, how do these also perform in a mod motor? Is this like LRPs answer to the Orion V2 stuff?

For those guys ordering from R10. They sell the CS brush under the Eagle brand.

It is pretty much what it says : odourless... Both compounds (carpet and tarmac) are very good on the specified surfaces and widely used among the UK.

I wonder why AE wouldn't want to import it then.

Without the smell of Paragon you wouldn't know it was an r/c race...hahahaha

I think Eagle doesnīt have very much own products. They sell a lot from other brands including Novak, Losi, Yokomo ..........

I think if Integy would sell the CS brush from the Eagle range it would cost even more.
