Default Motor Master Break-In Procedure

Hebiki, Much More, Nexus Racing,

Do you have a recommended break in procedure for a Stock or 19 turn motor while using F brushes?

Currently I am using 2 volts to 4 volts for 2 minutes with a 2 sec delay.

Just wondering if there is better break in procedure.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Best Regards,

Alex Cortez

some motor tuners break in for 300 seconds at 2-3V when the brushes are new. i do what you do, pulse break in. 2v-5v for 5 mins when brushes are brand new... 2 mins if ive just cut the comm and using the same brushes.

maybe EA or other motor tuners can provide us with a baseline guide for breaking in. i just do it that way to make sure i dont hang a brush.

Well, If they are new brushes try 2.0-2.5 volts for about 300 seconds. Usually thats always pretty good. Just make sure you can see wear across the entire face of the brush, to all 4 corners of the face. Alos make sure your brushes are moving freely in the brush hoods, and make sure they are really clean too. most of the power is transfered through the brush hoods, not the brush shunt.

Thumbs up

The Blue Motor Master was a special order for the Asian Market. Not many made and it was based on the second version of the motor master....

I like breaking my brushes in at about 1 volt for about 8-10 minutes. It seems to do a better job, not as much arching, this really good for hard brushes like the F-Brush. I then cut the comm and run the brushes in again for about 2-3 more minutes at 1 volt.

We like the pulse break-in because it seats the brushes well with less arcing. As the motor slows down during the pulse, tbe motor is essentially "coasting".
