Hyper,

Most people probably don't know what Marvel Mystery Oil is.

Nino,

The Trinity bushing oil works fine.

We released a comm drop last year that helps with break-in as well as a power additive during racing.

We used it in Jeff Dayger's motor to Win Cleveland, as well as to Top Qualify and Win Both 1/12 Stock and TC Stock classes at the Snowbirds as well. He also TQ'd the ROAR Carpet Nats with it.

Also used it in Paul Lemieux's winning 19 turn motor at the Snowbirds as well.

The comm and brush wear is reduced, thus not only improving overall power, but sustaining it's performance for a longer period of time before dropping off. I've been working on it on and off since my days at Trinity, and finally found something I believe in.

Try a bottle of "Top Fuel" for yourself...

I tried the top fuel stuff and it work with my 19t what it did for me was make the brush last a little long than if you didn't use it the power was good for the first 1.5 min but that's it, i tried it with stock but there was no difference it should be good when using mod motors it will make your brush last the 5 min run without burning the bursh.

what would be the main benefit of an octagon-shape brush for 27t stock motors?

I don't believe there is an octagon brush for laydown, only P94 style brushes.
I think it makes it easier on the comm though compared to a full face.

MuchMore have a nice alignment tool.

IMHO it is still better to use flat face brushes to set alignment.

Yup, you still have to do it by hand. However, the brush hood bar makes it easier to tweak them.

I just won my A main last saturday with that motor...wonderful little thing.

with a 90foot straight and tight infield, I'm geared at 7.18 in my TB02R. My buddy was geared at 7.2 in his FTTC4 and he was flying! He had a faster lap time than me. We both havent messed with the motors yet, just lube and install.

Default CO27 Gearing

Tested the new CO27 in the pro4 on a FDR of 6.2 using foams. The track has a 80 meter straight with a twisty infield. The motor performed poorly. Tried the red spring and 4499's as suggested, but no change. In fact the monster motor performed better. Any suggestions on what can be done to improve the performance?

Yeah,
Don't run an FDR of 6.2. Try a 6.5 - 6.8 to start with.

A 260 foot long straight! Assume you are running on a nitro layout. That should be pretty boring using most stock motors with foams. Do you have any electric layouts available to you?

You didn't say if it is indoor or outdoor; but, I would normally start with red/green springs. Also prefer using 767 brushes when I am somewhere that is pretty hot...like Texas. Have done fine with the "F" brush when it is cool.
