Default Timed brushes

Have done some reading in this thread and have gained alot from it, so thank you to all who contributed. One thing I noticed is that some have spoken about cutting brushes to adjust the timing of the motor. My question is....Is it legal to run timed brushes in stock motors?

Thanks

Depends on the sanctioning body/country where your racing. It is legal under ROAR rules here in the US...

Todd,

Thanks. I have read the rules for my country and no mention is made of timed brushes. Only that they may be replaced, and must be laydown. Anyhow, got a co27 performing much better with a slight cut off the trailing edge.

Oh...I sent a mail to your company a while ago enquiring about some motors but have not received a reply yet? Am interested in the monster and binary 2 magnet.

Thanks for the advise!

My fantom stock motor overheated and seized up on the track. I was finding that previously it was requiring a "bump" to get it going. I don't think I overgeared it, but it overheated. I was using a 21T then an 18T pinion on a 88T spur with 2.19 gearbox on a buggy.

The motor got so hot it seized up. The epic tag on the armature turned brown. The comm became grooved. The motor stank like burnt bakelite. The brushes are not discoloured, although the face of the brushes is a little black. One of the three windings looks discoloured at where wires bend around one of the windings near the comm end.

I recut the comm, installed new 767 brushes and it seems to run fine with no load. RPM sounds the same as any other motor. I've never really taken note, but the copper end bell gets hot in only a few seconds. The can gets hot even after only 15-20 seconds of running. How can I tell if the windings are shot? Or what else could it be that is causing this motor to make so much heat.

If it required a bump to get going before, it sounds like it was a hung brush. But if the tag turned brown from heat I would say the motor is done.

Can I swap another epic 27 armature into the fantom can and endbell? Does it have to be from another fantom stock or will other epic 27 armatures such as the CO27 armature work?

Buy an Arm for whatever can it is. You can buy another Arm for a CO27 from anyone and put into a CO27 can but you cant put a CO27 arm into a P2K2 can (well you can but at most if not all it will be illegal)

So is a fantom stock platinum edition can something special, or is it a member of some generic class of cans? Is each manufacturor's stock 27 turn motor something unique, or are there just a few variants?

We all get our Motors from main suppliers, therefore we all carry the same cans for Stock Motors. Difference is we each tune different and provide different level of services etc.

Their can is not special since they did not develop it, they just buy them OEM like anyone else doing Motors.

Default Corally Black 19T laydown

Hi all,

Here in The Netherlands we are racing Corally Black 19T laydown. We can't do anything about timing only brushes and springs. Does anyone knows a killer match between these two. I've heard something about Reedy Platinum brushes (Reedy part # 777) and factory springs (is this the way to go?)
Thanks a lot.
