Ive been recently debating between the new checkpoint 19t and the v2 style 19t's and I was wondering what options does checkpoint have for brushes?
I see only two at tower http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...L=++&search=Go
and I really dont want to have to pay $10/pr of brushes compared to the v2 style enduro10-30 for $4 . I run 6 cells so could i even use the atlas stlye(4cell) ones?Would I still be able to expect high numbers of runs between cuts like the $10 brush?If not, about how many runs can I get with the 4cell brushes?Are there any other options for brushes compatible with checkpoint motors besides the ones I listed?Sorry for all the questions but thanks in advance for all the help.

i know i can get these motors from tower but is there anywhere else that perhaps has cheaper shipping at tower it would cost me $41 US for the shipping for the 19turn motor which cost $49 dollars, i mean i would love to run checkpoint motors as i run them in what we call touring Mod but $90 for a 19turn motor is a bit rich for me, please help as i live in new zealand and with the cost of our dollar compared to the US dollar it will cost me nearly $200 NZ for this motor can anyone else ship the motor cheaper and with less hassel

please help

checkpoint for life

We'll have the Money motors in stock Mon or Tues! Looking forward to getting our hands on some.

Stevie: Do the Checkpoint. With the 10$ brush, you should be getting 15+ runs out of it.

Default motor tuning

Do we have to tune it to get at peak performance or is it ready to blaze away

I'm no check point expert but if they are using the same brush on the 19turn as the mods then brush life shouldn't be a problem. I ran the same pair of brushes during the entire nats in a 7x1. Practice and qualifying and the mains and will run it again for the first asphalt race.

---------------

Fans require energy to move air. The energy used up by the fan is energy that can't be used to move your car forward.

My Wife's old Nissan Sentra was faster when you turned the A/C off...same concept.
A motorís armature develops torque. However, there is a difference between developed torque and shaft torque.

If the armature has a fan, the fan has to move air, and like Adrian said, it takes work and energy to move the air. This energy is taken away from the overall motor output.

Unless the fan does a SUBSTANTIAL BENEFIT in cooling the motor (which will not) the torque and power that the fan takes away from the motor is contra productive.

We have done tests with all kinds of air moving mechanisms inside motors and once you measure overall efficiency, power, and torque, we found most of them not to be beneficial. They are more for looks than anything else....

There are better ways to cool down the commutator, magnets, and brushes.

The "majority" of ths so called armature cooling fans do not work. They are more for looks....
The same goes to "some" of the aftermarket rings and heatsinks that attach to the armature.

When you attach anything to an armature, you change the moment of inertia of the armature and that affects the overall performance. The moment of inertia of the armature is one if the major factors that defines motor performance.
