Default What brushes for Reedy Flash Point.

I have a HPI Sprint and I am getting Reedy Flash Point 17x2 from Towerhobbies.
I race the 17 Turn class and I want to buy 10 or so pairs of brushes with the motor.

What brushes would you recommend ?

I am also thinking of getting Reedy Flash Point 12x2 for my
XXX-T. What brushes would be good for that application.
Or would you maybe recommend another motor.
I am willing to spend up to $70 on a motor for the XXX-T so maybe I would be better off getting Team Orion Revolution V2 12x2 ?!?!

Plz comment.

The Reedy 729's are the better brush for the flashpoints.
Same as the Reedy KR but machine wound and stand up hoods.

The flashpoints are great for offroad too and very smooth.
The orion's are nice as well with less rebuilding.
In offroad if you decide ont he Orion V2 use the Enduro Brushes.

Fatdoggy is Correct.Thanks for the correction.

TexRacer - The flashpoint uses stand-up hoods.

Snikkari - So that would be quasars/729's, same compound as the 766's just in stand-up form.
