There is a world of difference between running off road and on road 4 wheel drive with that thing called traction.

I would like to know how long these would last in a buggy mod motor. Like how many runs before recut and how many runs before brushes get too short.

I am not saying it can't be done....but certainly not something I would recommend doing unless you are very skilled.

The new Fussybrush stuff though, would make it much easier to do....I'll try it tonight at the shop....

Looks like Trinity has a version of these brushes coming out soon too, they call them XXX brushes and they're selling them for $14. Now we just need someone with some extra cash to waste to do a comparison between the new Reedy, LRP, CS, and Trinity brushes.

Reedy and the LRP are the same according to what I have been told by the guys at AE...

I will gladly do a test, as I already have CS brushes in stock....Reedy brushes are on the way, as are the trinity brushes....

Cool, I wonder if there is a link between the price and performance? Otherwise Reedy will price themselves out since they're the most expensive.

Hi

Why reedy 777 brushes are so expensive 25US$ ?
CS cost (here in France) around 11€, 14-15 US$.

Damn...I remember when racing was all about fun. Now mod comes down to this:

Lathe: 100.00
Brush Serrator: 30.00
Few sets of brushes: 20-90.00
Mod motors: 60.00 each usually 2

Total, with only 2 mod motors would be about 370-400.00 dollars to simply RUN mod-class.

This makes 19-turn and stock MUCH more appealing.


Plus time spent rebuilding between heats, in between turn marshaling, etc. It's a G-Damn rat-race.


Brushless acceptance couldn't come soon enough.

I really hope to see the day the brushed motor FREAKING DIES a painful and horrific death.

Please, if you read through this thread you will discover that what you are saying is not true...

And BTW, what makes the 19T and stock classes look so much more appealing to you based on your calculations?
You don’t need a lathe for those motors? (why not split the cost with a buddy so you can share one?)
Brush serrator? Never had one, never seen the actual need for one.

And the few sets of brushes you mention: This is kinda the whole idea with the 777 brushes, they last a looooooooong time….

Again, read through the thread. You’ll understand.

It my local track I cut and rebrush my stocks and 19's every run. I run Mod now because its cheaper with V2's or Ti's and 777's.

Yeah you never want to say run stock because its cheaper. Last year I must have bought 8 motors and when you go to the track its really hot out you go through a set of brushes a run. When I ran Mod I ran a V2 and was able to get 10 runs on a set of brushes.

question on a related subject. a lot of people are talking about 1-run 8 (or less) turns, etc. are you having to rezap your motors at all? i ran my 10x2 in my sedan, the thing came off blistering and the brushes were purplish, with just a hint of gold, and the motor magnets were noticeably weaker (at least from a static perspective).

as far as the 777's go; it sounds like a win-win all the way around, although based off of eddie's post, i would question why the team guys were not using them if they are "that good".
