just recieved another 100 pairs of 767's for $99.50 from kinetix r/c....the sell them for $9.95 for 10 pairs(limited time offer)...... buying just one pair from them will run you $1.75...........In my experience 767's and 4499's still make the most power for stock motors......

I gottem same place as Joe B.

Some at the local track have doubted they are actually 767's but I can't confirm either way yet as I haven't tried them... and even then... I doubt I could..

I've always been using Reedy 767's on my stock motors. 4499's are very good as well but slightly harsher on the comm.

I can confirm that they're 100% genuine......same exact performance on the track, as well as my motors having the same numbers on my turbo dyno 45........ I just checked the kinetix website and they don't seem to have them anymore.......

about how long should you run 767's before replacing them and cutting the comm?

If the brushes are not discoloured you can run them until the springs won't push them anymore. (think about half the lenth they are when new) You should cut the comm however for a stock motor, mebbe every 15-20 runs if you don't have a lathe readily available. You don't need to replace the brushes every time you cut the comm, but every time you do replace the brushes you should cut the comm.

For my stock motors, I cut them every 6-10 runs, and replace brushes... every second cut roughly.

If the brushes are going blue, or purple its time to replace them.

Anyone tried the Trinity 4505's? They're advertised as the "new" 99 compound with diag serrations. Anyone know the difference in their compound compared to the original 99's and the 767's? Or are they a duplicate of the767's compound?

None you mentioned are a duplicate of the reedy 767's.....The brushes with the newer 99 plus compound are slightly harder (higher silver content) than the regular 99 compound......and even the regular old E-brush 99 compound is slightly harder on the comm than the 767......Iv'e tried 'em all and I get better numbers on my dyno as well as better runs on the track with the reedy 767's and the plain old 4499's with the straight serrations....the angled serrations leave the comm slightly cleaner but In my experience I feel the power is down a little bit....
