I keep hearing this Tribo stuff....where do you get it at??? I normally don't run comm drops because of the extra maintenance it requires but, since I'm rebuilding the motor every run anyways.....

How much is it???

acloco: ONLY 12 degrees??? heh heh Wow. That's REALLY low. You should be getting alot more than 2 runs on that motor with that low of timing!!! (I would think). We run about 24. Lots o' power!!!! Motor just keeps pulling and pulling. and we are on a pretty small track!!! Good call on the tension of the spring...forgot about that part....

Also. When spraying out the motor, be a bit careful not to douse the brushes with spray. The spray dries quick and removes alot of grit and grime. It will also dry out the brushes (if you are re-using them), removing the natural lubricants in the brushes.

Just pull them out of the brush hoods.

If you are gonna re-use them, use a comm brush. The best ones are the fiberglass comm brushes. Just be careful...the fiberglass can break and it's a b*tch to see, and if you get it stuck in your skin it's VERY hard to see. I suggest using it over a trash can. But they work the best....

How do the magnets in the Orion Core Touring (G12) compare to those of the Reedy Ti (C4)?

Tony,
Yep...12 degrees. If you need to run more timing....go to a lower wind...hehe

IMHO..if you need more than 12-16....that is kind of the point where you are balancing replacing armatures every couple of months or the arm lasting the season.

But...if you are running in a 10 turn limit....than crank it up by all means.

One more item that you might try....use a Trinity 4383 on the positive and an Reedy 729 on the negative. Replace the 4383 after every three runs. The Quasar brush provides the lubricant and the 4383 delivers the power.

Well, we are running 8x1's and 8x2 (sometimes a 7x2) with 24 degrees. Man these things are fast. Love that speed.

But, when you race at the SoCal Worlds EVERY weekend, you need that power....
