Default LRP silver P-brush

hi guys,

I 'm a newbie in EP, can someone share their experience with the LRP silver P-Brush? I am curious about this and is it true the brush will last longer and worth to buy? how about the effect on performance of the motor?

The LRP silver P brush is very similar to the CS silver power brush. I run these in stock (27t) and mod in an 11t.

They last between 40 and 50 5minute races in a touring car. The only reason i change them at 50 runs is because they get a bit short but do not burn.

Once run in they leave a coating of the silver compound on the comm. I skim about every 10 runs.

The performance is great, on the weekend i outqualified a fully sponsored driver (and got TQ ) using these brushes in my monster stock.

I would prefer to the silver CS brushes. They cost the dobble but last till the end of size and, as Robfo said, they dont burn. And they save the comm to.
The lrp brushes are probably a imitation of the sucessful CS.
It should not be used in the wet. They disapeared in one run.

Don't know about the LRP, but I believe they're pretty similar to the CS brushes.

Never had any problem with the CS under rain.

Manufacturer is... CS, yeaaaaah what a surprise...

40-50 5 min runs in a touring car with a 27t stock.......

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.

They are no better than the CS brush.....some argue they are the samething, just different package.....and little (not much) cheaper. You can order the CS brushes online from the www.cs-electronic.com website.....they even take credit cards.

How do these brushes compare to a 767 or 4499? Thanks.

I think they are comparable to the Reedy 766 in performance, but like many have said....they last a LOT longer and don't overheat like other brushes do. I have had a team driver just burn the hell out of a comm and these brushes still looked brand new!
