Try Hurricane Golds. They make for mad rip, but they are also a little harder on the comm. Expect to rebuild after 3-4 runs.

Maybe align the brush hoods, teflon shims on the ends, toothpaste the bushings, it's all on here http://www.motortuningsecrets.com/

I've heard that those new paradigm brushes really rip! havn't tried them yet though. As far as tuning....you really have to experiment with stuff. I've been known to make some real screamers....I'm not so much of a fan of mod....but I sweat the stock motors. that website is great for the tuning process. Brushes and spring tuning really comes with track time and if you have one, dyno results.

there is a lot of tricks you can do to a stock motor to give it some rip...

the most important rule..

Clean = Fast!

i take the brush hoods apart and clean the spots where the brush rides with a fibreblass pen... lots of other things too...

There are a lot of variables, you gotta do trial and error for that certain track, you may need springs for torque or for rpm, then try different brushes reedy 767's seem popular, teflon shimming, bushing lubs, comm drops, but stick with the same exact gearing till it wont accelerate or get more top speed then mess with the gearing.

Thumbs up team balls

the hype was all about team balls this weekend in cleveland. they had multiple motors in the bmains, and one in the a prior to the last round.

CRC Brushes are good
Putnam as well
Reedy 767
Zap 19 (not sure if there for stock, i know there great for 19t and i think they should be good in stock as well)
Shim motor
You can try some lubes too (tribo i heard was ballastic and other lubes for brushes or bushings/bearings)
Align Brushhoods
Try to clean motor almost every run so you can get any grit out
clean is fast
Green/Red combo are very good on monsters, i feel purples all around are very hard on the comm. (green all around is good as well)

You can go to Bigjim forums he has ALOT of motor tips.

Hope it helps
