I agree.

Even though I have a bushing alignment tool, the process of replacing bushings in a motor is daunting to say the least.

Default Is this legal?

I went and polished the armature of my MHP. I dremmeled away all the green color (just on the outer laminations...not the top or bottom) on the laminations then polished them up really well so they are a bright silver and very smooth. Is this legal?

Nope, not legal.

How do magnets stay in a can? I just inspected my monster to find a loose magnet. How do I get it to stay in there without moving? Thanks

On the magnet, JB Weld will hold it in great....


As for the polishing of the stacks, its HIGHLY illegal and will earn you an instant DQ...

And if your using a dremel to do it, your not doing it correctly anyways....you will more than likely split the laminations on the end, but won't be able to really see it with the naked eye easily.

What exactly does polishing the stacks do? Assuming I were to use a different method...like chucking the arm into a drill press and using sandpaper and do it by hand. I should try it that way. I did split one lamination....but that's one too many! How do you get away with it with your motors eddie? I saw a brood motor in Xtreme this month and it was all polished up.

On modifieds, its perfectly legal.....but not on 19t or stocks....

It's not really something you can do yourself....as even though you take off VERY little material, its enough to throw the balance of the motor off...thats why its done before balancing takes place.

As for what it does, it smooths the surface and decreases the amount of potential turbulence in the can...plus it looks cool.

I wish I had a copy of this XRC.....seems everyone has read it but me....! Got a scanner??

Yes, but I don't know how to use it, my dad does, so maybe I can get him to help me with it. Just go to Fred Myers and check it out. Its a whole section on motor technology and stuff. They had a little column on Brood motors and SIB motors. The bulk of the article was on Trinity D6 (standard comm, big brush), Reedy KR (laydown brush, big comm), and Orion V2 (new endbell). Thanks for the reply!

When did you get it?

I have been checking Fred Meyer every day for a week, including yesterday....and they all still have the older copy.

No, the motor has to be run in the form it was homologated in, making hybrid motors illegal.

at big events, the motor tech guys will have already engraved a number into the "can" and the "arm." After the race during tech, they will match up your can # with your arm#....if they don't match, you get a DQ.

At any race that isn't using handouts.....you could swap in the correct arm without a problem....they SELL replacement arms for every trinity stocker, as well as the MVP/Core units....

What you CAN'T do is put a arm from another type of motor in your can. Example....if you have a monster, you can put a replacement monster arm in it....but you can't put a MVP or P2k2 arm in it.

At a handout motor race, typically the motors are marked on the can, endbell, and armature.....if the numbers don't match during tech....they will disqualify you.

I just bought a new Monster Pro and checked on the condition the brush wear and I noticed that it seems to be a bit off . I have not run this motor yet. Is it OK at this point to align the brush hoods or just wear out the original brushes and align the hoods after the brushes are worn out?
