Default Question on F Brushes

How long should it take to break in F brushes?

I noticed the ones I got from LHS have really sharp edges on the serrations. Is this normal? Seems like it takes a long time to break them in enough to get good current flow.

I tried them on CO27 and Epic X-stock. Purple springs + and Red springs -
Seems like it takes so long I have to cut the comm again and rebreak them in again a couple minutes.

Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

Is there really that big a difference between the trinity pro motors and the tuned motors by brOOd et al? Anyways season starts up next month and I am looking to get some motors and suggested rollouts or fdr's for them.
brOOd batteries and motors are awesome! EddieO is the man! I have a P2K2 and an Epic Roar Stock tweaked by brOOd and they are awesome! I was in the market for something new..."The zero degree version is very good though.....the Co27 is the motor to run, with the X stock making a decent impression...." brOOd!

A bit of a noob question... but who makes the f brush? I tried a search but it ignores the f.... How does it stack up against Trinity's 4499's? I am going to be running TC this winter with either a CO27 or a Monster. Thanks

Its made by Finishline. It draws more amps and produces more overall power than the 4499's. Most Top Companies use and sell them uncluding us, Br00d and EA

What's the position on magnet zappers? Are they worth the dough?

For the normal racer - no, unless you plan on charging people $5 as zap to help pay for your investment. For a Motor Company its a must have.

Thanks, so there is some performance and a bit of money to be had *L* I wonder how long it would take to get 130 zaps?

What other tools would you recommend? I bought a Hudy Lathe with a diamond bit, and I have a GFX for break in... although I prefer my old Victor with the variable rate run in. I was looking at getting a Fussy brush setup for doing brushes... what sizes would I need for stock?

I appreciate you taking the time to answer questions

On your Co27 try F-brushes with red springs and on the monster I have always ran 4499's with reds for touring.

Im running 12th scale with a monster stock.

I tried f brushes with red springs last week
but it seemed to be pulling to many amps.
When i went back to 4499 it drew less amps
and was faster on the track.

Also want to try the co27,anyone have a good
setup for 12th scale. I can get the motors to pull
alot of amps but this doesnt seem to work well in 12th.

your best bet for setting up the co27 is to use f-brushes and a red spring on the + and a green on the -. this is a good set-up for the needs that are describing. also the motor could also be pulling too high of amps because your motor bushing could be a little tight on the armature shaft. so if it is, polish the bushings and try it again to see the amp draw.

ARMATURE BALANCING

Hi Fellows

Just a quick question about motor balancing. Once you have purchased a new 27T motor that has been setup and had the armature balanced by one of our top motor tuners. Is there any need to have the armature rebalance throughout the motors life. If so how would you know that the motor needed to be rebalanced a what improvements in performance you would except from the motor.

I highly doubt that the motor would go out of balance over the course of it's life. If it wasn't balanced properly to begin with, that is a different story...
