Brush question: anyone try brushes with a drilled hole? I was thinking of drilling a hole on the negative side and keeping it a full face, while serrating the positive side. (This is on 767s)

I think alot of people drill holes in the face, somthing like 3/32 and it keeps the motor running cooler.
I've tried all kinds of things with brushes and in general just slightly filing the edges is as good as anything...

Just buy a pack of 769's,their 767's with a hole drilled in them.For most of the epic motors the stock brushes work best..just as onnetz said filling the edges(leading)works..

Default amazing brushes

If you want to try some good brushes, try the "F" brushes. I'm seeing the highest power numbers that I've ever seen from my dyno with these brushes. Also, they seem to last a while to. After three runs in my 1/12 scale, the serrations were still present and accounted for. The comm looked really nice as well.

Default Binary2 con't

Did some test runs today, I'm pretty much set on purple springs. Although I thought that running red + and green - would let the motor free up as it's a high RPM motor. Whatever though .
I was running a 7.84 and it seemed pretty good, but have to test that on a track. OR I could add a tooth and run a 7.48.

Hmm, looking to get some new motors, either the Monster or EPIC Roar Stock. Any comments on either? The EPIC seems to have slightly more RPM and less torque.

Hi Jesse
what do you want to lnow? Well the PK2 is a torque motor and you have to gears up 4 teeth in 64th pitch compare the MS. the PK2 it is the best stock motor in the history and the PK2 last longer and you get yout money worth...MS it is better for out door racing larger trtack..... lately the F brushes seem to works very well for the munster stock ....
