When I was racing in the early 80's, you submerged the whole motor in water. It broke-in the brushes quickly and very well. Of course, this was in the day of closed endbell motors.

I use electric-tape (not sure what the correct term is, but its the rubbery kind)
you got it right, most people call it electrical tape or just black tape. best stuff I have ever found is made by Scotch, super 33+. I have used it to tape the hatches onto my boats and it works great.
Brushes? We don't need no stinking brushes!!!
