brandon,

i saw your post on the brush alignment thread. i have noticed that some of the motor tuners do indeed squeeze the brush hood to minimize play. i have tried to copy this with some of my older monsters, but they instantly turned to crap on the dyno. also going from pulling 10 amps durring break in to 4 or 5! what's the deal? the brushes could still slide freely in the slot, so it's not drag. please help.

thanks.

- chris

seabell,

How hard are you squeezing the hoods? Its only copper, so it does not need to be squeezed very hard. If you squeeze too hard, it will push the hoods up and give the brush a lot of up and down play which will kill the performance.

Also, you should squeeze the very inside of the hood first. You can get to the inside of the hood by taking the endbell off and squeezing the hood from inside the endbell. After you do this, gently squeeze the entire hood. It will help a lot if you have a pair of pliers that you round the inside out of with a dremel. If you don't do this, the angle of the pliers will only squeeze the very top part of the hood.

Sorry if that is hard to follow, but without pictures it is hard to explain. I will write up a full tutorial with pictures this week and post it on here and on our website.

nah, brandon. it was actually pretty easy to follow. appreciate it.

i noticed when i squeezed the hoods, the brushes turned to like a powdered substance and crumbled into the can. do you think i was squeezing too hard?

thanks for help today. i'll drop that email and call you in a few.

seabell,

were you squeezing the hood with the brushes in it or with an alignment bar in it?

dude, i'm just kidding. but i did have the brushes in when i did it. what i did was just a crude way of minimizing the play in there. i just did not expect to see the results be so detrimental to performance if not done correctly. the motors were not so hot so i figured i'd start screwing around.

Sup Tres?

Yeah, I have always come on here occasionally, but I am finally getting caught up enough to start doing more stuff like post on forums and write tech support articles and stuff. Kinda nice

Cool

Hey Brandon, just gave you a ring on the personal c. Wanted to know if you will be at Trackside this Sunday. If so can you bring a 9 turn arm (pt) and some brushes, also do we have a Hara version V2 to test yet? You can also call me on the c if you wish. Thanks- DA

Oh, on the pic, i'm still working on it, i've been very busy for the past week with a client, lots of driving back and forth, took the next couple off but i'll get to it. LOL

Sorry I didnt get back to you right away. I got your voicemail when I was in the middle of something, and then just forgot. I'll give you a shout out tomorrow. Just getting ready to go out for the night right now. I need it

Sorry, I wont be at Trackside on Sunday. We have our big offroad race at DirtHeaven on Saturday, so am tied up all weekend with that. Possibly next Sunday though.
