Default Monster Stock Question

Hi All,

I've read through the stock motor thread and got some Putnam brushes and springs. I read about the Green/Blue brush combination for the Monster stock. I also have the red and green springs and am not sure which I should use since most people only talked about the brushes so I am looking for your recommendations on the spring combo. Thanks!

hey haunted, long time no see.
On my monster stocks I have never run the putnam brushes, just the 767 or 4505. I usually run reds on both sides with 4505. The 767 are good for the initial first part of a run but fall off. Use the highest silver putnam brush. It will end up being very close.

Default stock springs

just use the stock springs with the highest silver content brush from atlas in a waffle pattern this is good for all round power with a tad more top speed

You're in the right track with the Putnam brushes. I use Green for both sides and red/+ and green/- springs. Just make sure to polish the motors bushings and armature shafts

what ever springs you use for this make sure that the positive spring has more tension than the negative spring.

Default EPIC QUAD MAD

What's the difference of this stock motor from the MONSTER Stock?

Do we gear it the same?

thanks - lem

The binary 2 is very picky on gearing. I gear mine a little lower then my monsters. I run a 28mm rollout for my monster and a 26.5mm rollout for my binary 2 at my local track. It'll be different for every track though.

is it ok to put a 30mm heatsink on a monstor stock? As it has the flat bits with the cooling vents on either side, is it ok if the heatsink goes over these? Will it still work?

Hey FatDoggy

How in the world are you getting a 28mm rollout for your monster ?

I have a TC3 and in order for me to get a 26mm rollout I need a 100 spur and a 40 pinion which I do not think will even fit!

I used a 50mm tire diameter for the calculation.
