what brushes are on your monster motor? is there any material taken off the brush(leading or trailing edges?) doing this will in a sense reduce the arching and have less material touching the comm. you should see a temp drop in the motor giving you atleast another tooth up. if your taking material off only take off .010. check out dc motor thread and also team brood. motor springs depends on brushes but i like to tune with purple + red - for F-brushes and 767's

Purple/Red has worked for me on shorter tracks, Red/Red or Red/Green on larger, more flowing tracks has also worked. Have you checked to make sure that your arm is centered in the can and is not binding somewhere (over shimmed?) Also, make sure you don't have the gear mesh too tight or binding in the drivetrain.

Is there an aftermarket spur adaptor for the Fk05 that allows standard spurs to be used?

Thanks.

Check out my New Products page. I have a new motor mount for the FK05 that allows for more forward movement of the motor which allows for larger spur gears. It also has a clearance cut in the side that aloows you to use other spur gears without the possibility of the spur gear rubbing. You can find these at http://www.teamtamale.com

Basically you can use either Xray or PRS with no mods. Anything else and you will have to drill the third hole. Not difficult by any means but the PRS spur gears and pinions are the best out there in my opinion.

I would adjust the collar to move it away from the drive axle ... even a little bit of contact will cause friction - and if you bend an axle in a crash, there is going to be alot of contact which will cause some weird handling characteristics - the car will "snap" in turns because the front axles will bind.

I just built my FK05 and noticed that in the rear, the tires are rubbing on the lower plastic shock cup. I'm using Parma tires. Whats the fix for this. Are BSR tires smaller or do I need to cut off a little bit of the tire on the inside of the rim of my Parma tires?
