Which springs are you using?

What is your timing set at?

What brushes are you using? How are you breaking them in....

If you are running sprint brushes then you will get only a few runs with max. performance.

If the other guys are using enduro brushes then this explains why they are getting 15 or so runs

I usually get 8 to 10 runs in practice out of a set of sprint brushes sometimes more depends on how lazy I am, performance doesn't drop that much, when it does you know about it though.

I'm not sure what difference the corally armature would make but I have heard that low turn corally motors do not like a lot of timing, you should be running 10 degrees or less (just less then the second mark on the V2 can I think).

I believe EddieO is asking what compound of brushes Sprints or Enduros and how are you breaking them in - whats the timing at on your motor? How many amps? How long? Comm Drops or no Comm Drops?

Sprint brushes (without serrations, older versions had them) should be broken in at ZERO degrees timing at 2.5 volts for 5-6 minutes or until they are seated. A softer spring sometimes takes longer.

AJ Racing,

With a 8t motor you will need to run harder springs, go to the Hard Springs Part# 41393 this will make a huge difference!

Also 2 noches is like 12deg, try a timing around 6-8deg.
The Enduro brushes will also give you more runs betwen rebuilds, so I suggest you try those as well.

Cheers,

Aw Jean.

As a starting point. 1 notch = 4mm = 12 degrees.

Use that as your basis for calculations on most motors.

I'll be in after 3pm today. Call and I can explain further.

I am getting better results with V2 ended motors all the time - and plenty of runs too. Might even use them on Sunday !

Bring your transmitter with you too.

So each "notch" on the can (white or red line) is 12 degrees?

On Orion Revolutions white/red lines are 2mm or 6degrees, on other motors the notches on the actual endbell are 4mm or 12 degrees.
