As long as you gear your monster correctly it should work fine. If it's a tight track you may want to try red/red springs or if you have a lathe and don't care about comm/brush wear then maybe purple/red.

If you're looking for pure torque, silver on the posative and purple on the negative with a high silver brush. However, you'll have to fully rebuild it after each run.

Default Hole drilled in brush

I bought 2 binary stock "outlaw" motors on Ebay recently, from a company that supposedly 'tunes' thes motors.
I checked the brushes on one of them and both brushes had 1/64the of an inch holes drilled in the center of the brush face.

anyone know the purpose of this drill hole? The second identical motor I bought at the same time did not have these holes

Default I drill holes

I don't know about them, but I have found a 5/64 or #42 bit with a hole in the center of the brush keeps the comm and brushes looking a lot better after a few runs. FOR ME it seems to prolong performance and I don't get arc marks on the brushes or com. I drill all of my brushes. I do not have a serrator.

Default Holes

Brushes make the most amount of power along the outermost edges of the brush. So, by drilling a hole in the center, you force the power to stay along the outermost edges of the brush forcing the brush to maintain maximum power output. The other advantage to a hole brush is that you can use a lighter spring and still achieve the same effect of a full face brush with a heavy spring.

pop out your bushings and first sand them with 400 grit, then sand with 2000. Sand on a piece of glass so it is as flat as possible. Once you've sanded a perfectly flat surface into the face of the bushing....then go to work on the inside. Roll up your 400 and sand the inside but be careful because if the hole is enlarged too much you'll get some play. Then take 2000 and do it again. Once all done, spray with motor spray, allow to dry. Then take BLUE MAGIC POLISH and rub the bushing on an old white t-shirt and it'll turn black. thats the grime and [email protected] that's coming off the bushing. Once it turns black, move to another spot and rub it on the shirt again, it will turn black. continue this until it no longer is black. Then repeat on the inside of the bushing.

Do the same process for the shaft itself and your bushings will spin like bearings.

Jaybee-

Yes, All ROAR Approved stock motors have brass bushings. Just polish them up liek others have said and they work great. Just keep them lubed with something. What track were you going to run at? I might be able to help you out on gearing.

I run 767s and purple springs and mine runs pretty good. I have a Fantom Quad Mag 19T that came with 766s and purple springs.
