you're talking about right? I've got one on back order at Tower and was hoping I'd have it here in NZ by September 18 for my next meeting (first run with a 1/12th).

Tower sent me a email saying the 4 cell brushes have shipped but a bit redundent if the motor isn't here.

I'll correct you....

Wrong.....the 19t rules specifically allow ANY type of brush system on a 19t motor as long as it has appeared on a previously approved modified or stock motor.....

Jake and Eddie,

The 19t will be round brushes. We are in the final testing stages right now. It will also be a plastic endbell with fixed 24 degrees of timing.

Our projected release date is going to be mid November.

Running 19 turn all day without even looking at the brushes or comm was awesome. The power is great throughout the run, you guys are gonna love the motors.

We have just come back from the KO Gp at West London, England, where both my son and I ran Checkpoint motors exclusively on our cars. May I also add that there were plenty of other runners using them successfully too.

My many years experience of modified racing has thought me that a set of brushes and a comm skim are a must after every run. Not any longer I am glad to say.

Son Josh ran his TC4 all of Saturday, Sunday and Monday on the same 7 x 1 motor. Saturday was practice so we didn't bother even looking at the motors. A new set of brushed was installed for Sunday qualifying. Josh did a controlled practice run of 5 minutes and the first 2 qualifying runs without even looking at the motor. I skimmed the comm before the final 2 runs. It just needed cleaning - literally, and he ran the next 2 qualifiers. On race day I skimmed it again between the 2nd and 3rd final, though it didn't need it - I'm just so used to taking them apart after every run.

So the whole weekend was run on 1 set of brushes......and the car was QUICK.

As for my own Yoke BD, I put a new set of brushes on before we left Malta and haven't looked at it since.

For a change, and thanks to Checkpoint, we had plenty of time for burgers, ice creams and socialising this time.

They ran great. Running 19t without cutting it all night is going to be pretty fun.
