Default Number of motors you have per class?

Just curious as I am running stock sedan on carpet and I have a beginning-to-get-worn Monster Stock. Therefore I need to grab a new stock motor and I am debating whether just to grab one or two "tuned" Monster Stock's.

Thanks.

i think its safe to awlays have a spare motor sat in your box..you never know what could happen, a peeled comm, cracked magnet, bent armature.

yes they sound crazy but they are doable...

i have 2 specs, about 4 mods and have 1 stock atm, will soon have another 2 stocks.

you should just buy a stock motor just in case but for the worn down stock you have just ask some one at the track to cut the commutator and change the brushes. i have 4 stocks and 1 19 turn

not really in the LONG run brushless is cheaper. what i mean by long run is 2 YEARS. it will take you 2 years to equall the amount you spend for brushes you get every 2 weeks of weekly racing

What I have:

2--- 27t monster stocks
1--- 27t Epic Binary stock
1--- 27t P2k2 pro

About 3 spare armatures for stock.

Just 1 Reedy 19t Quad mag.

If youre worried about wearing down the comm too much, too quickly, run harder, less silver content brushes and lighter springs.

1 Epic binary 2 19T outlaw (four mag)
3 Epic binary 2 outlaw stockers
3 Trinity monster stockers
2 P2K-2 stockers

We always practice with our 19Turn motors no matter what class were racing, then use the race motor for that race, no wear & tear on the race motors, & no need to drag the lathe to the track.

I like most people have way too many motors. At any one time I will have at least:
2 GM3's
2 PK2K's
2 BS
2 Epic Roar Stock
and 4 Monster Stock

Which motor I use depends on the track layout and conditions. I carry more Monster Stocks because they are probably the best overall motor and i would hate to be stuck without one.

I have motors that are just for practice and i have motors that are just for race night. I will also buy one or two of each motor just for testing purposes (setups and stuff).

I just started racing 19T so I don't have to carry a bunch of different stuff, i just went out and bought 6 Reedy Quad Mag 19T.

I would have 2 to 3 race motors and 1 junk practice motor. Don't buy all monsters, although having 2 in your box cannot hurt.

If you are really trying to sort out a setup sometimes running a 19t can help exaggerate the handling problems.

Last weekend I had only 2 stock motors in my box, my others needed some work and I left them at home, both went bad and had to borrow a 3rd.
