Peter and Bowser had power on Alex....even Chad said it.....he just drove so damn good.....Peter started all the way back from 7th.....

Trust me, Peter's motor had power.....he set the 3rd fastest run of the event with his belt going UNDER the steering link on his Losi....imagine the drag.

Your power was good.....Furman's was solid(if memory servers correct, I believe I built his motor for the main.....may of been 19t though, I can't remember)....

Nats in florida sounds fun, as long as you guys take me to a REAL titty bar.....the ones I went to in Orlando were stupid....they had band-aids over their nipples!

I have done that, but tend to use something a little thinner for the bushings.

Hhahah all the way from F-Brushes to titty bars. Gotta love this forum.

So um what kind should I get for the f-brush? Stand-up or lay down and will these work with any motor?

I'm a little confused by people mentioning that you can use the one type of comm drops for both the comm AND the bushings.

Seems to me that the bushings need a lubricant and the comm needs a fluid to improve conductivity between comm/brushes.

How can one product achieve both as any oil-based lubricant is not good for electrical conductivity?

If I'm not mistaken Tribo isn't oil based.Lubricants don't have to be oil based.

Bender, out of the 10 drops I tested not one conducted electricity. The reason why drops work is for some other reason.

If it's any kind of endorsement Most of the premiere motor builders recommend Tribo,Big Jim, Eric Anderson just to name a few.Although Eric didn't always agree about it's potential,but has come around.

Don't get me started on "Mr. The MVP Is the best stock motor on the market 6 years after it's initial release" Big Jim.

I did a comm drop shootout a few months back for the magazine. Do comm drops make a difference? Yes. Do they all make a positive difference? NO!

Here's the results from the 19T motor tests. These show the first run of results that were done on a Fantom dyno. I also did a series of these tests on some stock motors as well.
Orbital 2R 19 Turn Power @ RPM RPM @ Seconds Torque
Motor 1 Baseline: 61.38 @ 9444 17716 @ 2.20 0.929
Motor 2 Baseline: 64.14 @ 9575 18084 @ 2.20 0.958
Motor 3 Baseline: 67.34 @ 9839 18163 @ 2.00 0.990

Hurricane Red 67.95 @ 9952 18342 @ 2.00 1.007
Hurricane Red 69.45 @ 10053 19294 @ 2.20 0.979
Hurricane Red Average: 68.31 @ 9995 18690 @ 2.13 0.987

Power Shot 67.37 @ 11223 19039 @ 2.30 0.965
Power Shot 68.25 @ 10059 18517 @ 2.10 0.977
Power Shot Ave. 67.00 @ 10819 18675 @ 2.20 0.963

Slick/Zero 69.21 @ 10099 18491 @ 2.20 1.079
Slick/Zero 68.49 @ 9880 18570 @ 2.20 0.997
Slick/Zero Average 67.37 @ 9990 18487 @ 2.20 1.004

Trinity Power @ RPM [email protected] Seconds Torque
best [email protected] 11364 [email protected] 2.20 0.968
average 67.78 @ 10397 18731 @ 2.33 0.973

Tribo
Best 65.78 @ 9810 18352 @ 2.20 0.968
Average 63.73 @ 9735 18034 @ 2.30 0.965

Orion
Best 67.35 @ 9911 18282 @ 2.00 0.976
Average 66.76 @ 9883 18184 @ 2.00 0.97

Niftech
Best 66.54 @ 10209 18698 @ 2.50 0.94
Average 65.24 @ 10686 18474 @ 2.30 0.928

Zubak
Best [email protected] 9951 18599 @ 2.10 0.972
Average 63.98 @9758 18356 @ 2.45 0.937

Hurricane Blue
Best 67.29 @ 10009 18211 @ 2.10 0.984
Average 66.63 @ 9944 18280 @ 2.15 0.987

Finish Line
Best 69.20 @ 11444 18855 @ 2.10 0.978
Average 67.20 @ 11309 18662 @ 2.15 0.963

With these results and the results from the stock motor tests I would stay away from Tribo. They tended to either do nothing for performance or in some tests the results were worse after the Tribo was applied. If you're looking for drops, Hurricane Red or Blue, Finishline, Zubak, or Slick/Zero Drops were consistantly top performers.

Again, Shane, if you want I'll edit this post but I think this speaks directly to the nature of this thread.
Anyone have test a new comm drops likes much more....etc, and have result with motor dyno.. What the best comm drops for now???
