Default Cobalt 19 Turn Thread

I just got the Cobalt 19t and some P-94 XXX Lemans brushes.

Gearing/timing suggestions? How do they run for you guys

The Cobalt 19T does not take P94 brushes, it takes the stand up ones. At least mine did. Didn't matter though because the motor screams!

I've got experience with open 19t motors, just not the Cobalt. What's your track like? Do you brake? Do you need acceleration or top end?

Usually I start out with 24 degrees and 4383 brushes. If you've got a dyno, then adjust the timing 2-4 degrees at a time. ALWAYS give the motor a cool down time between dyno pulls.

Most of my open motors use super hard springs and 4383's. About 30-35 degrees of timing.

From what i have seen in oval racing..(its what i do) .. the Cobalts dont work as well on larger tracks.. on smaller carpet tracks there awesome... But on the big outdorr asphalt tracks they are lacking.... i would assume, they may be the same on larger road course tracks....

As for the xxx brush.. there awesome... i use them in stock motors, and 19 turns as well.. they are a very good brush for the money...

I slapped myself in the forehead the second I realised it didn't take P-94's. Forgot that if its a 19t w/adjustable timing its gotta be a stand-up (with the recent rule amendment because of the P-94 brushes in oval 19...)

Thanks for the input guys. I'll post mine Monday night when I get back from my test.

Burbs: I run a medium sized carpet track (touring car, "road course") What timing do things motors like

oval is basically 24 and 36.. i would say 36 degree.. if you run 24, you will have to throw more gear at it..
