I want to see advancements made to get a stock to run for 50 runs between cuts.

You could run a V2 endbell conversion kit and get many runs before truing is necessary.

The problem though is that stock motors are so limited that we have gone to laydown brushes and high timing to get more and more speed becasue that is what stock racers want (for some reason). It would be easy to make a stock motor get 50 runs - make it 27 turns with stand-up brushes and a maximum of 5 degrees of timing.

That's because we run super-duper-ultra-modified stock these days.

When there are 1,542 different companies in the US that "tune" OEM stock motors, it's hard to call it "stock" any more!

In the end, there needs to be a marking that IDs the motor....

Looks like it only has one capacitor too, which is weird.

nope, you can clearly see 2 caps

Duane Silva

This has nothing to do with motors but since I saw you names on a magazine I've been wanting to ask this

Do you guys (Duane and Daryl) have Portuguese ancestors?

The name Silva is very very Portuguese...

Default Check point

Check point were Big Jims old motors,

those things were great, but I did hear somewhere Big Jim sold check point (the name) to o'donnell,

I've been wondering ever since if or when they were going to do somthing with it.

this motor looks promising, I hope it maintains the same level of quality, heck point has always had.

p.s. does Big Jim have anything to do with these new motors?????

tcr - read the rcca link that has the pictures on it. jim answers your question and more on the topic.

glad to see another player in the biz. i do not (yet) own a v2, however i could definately see them incorporating the spring retention features that this motor has (really the biggest complaint i've heard about v2's is getting to the brushes).

hopefully we'll get some internal snapshots on the motor soon. looks good.

If it did, it would have a "brood" sticker on the side or something....not checkpoint or odonell.

Our endbell design is much much different than that.....not even close, except maybe the fact its made of aluminum.

Watch out for these motors guys, they will be out for blood soon enough. Duane wont bring anything out that isnt perfect, ala the Silva side shocks for the oval cars, t-plates, new car....

it says 50 runs before a cut is "REQUIRED". i can run my motors till they quit running before a cut is "required", but by then its to late for a cut.

I can answer this one for ya.

Yes the Silvas have Portuguese ancestors. And if you get confused with their names, the have 2 other brothers whose names start with D and their dad as well.

The idea should be that with the round brush you get a softer transition from one comm segment to another, which leads to less arcing and makes the comm last longer before the edges of the comm plates get burned requiring you to cut the comm. If you run the square brushes you most likly will not get the same super long comm intervals, but will get some more rip out of the motor.

It's my understanding that Duane is trying to get the most out of the motors, by alowing you to run either round or square brushes. In the end its only going to be better for you the consumor.

Well, what about a diamond shape? Like take your laydown brush and put it at a 45 degree....its not "round" but it would have that smoother transition from plate to plate. Maybe some company could experiment with that.
