best way to go fast is to practice.

When you can get around the track for 5 minutes without crashing, then you can spend money on go fast bits.

Take a look at the good guys at your track, most of them are probably running nothing special.

You'll need to learn proper maintenance, motor building, battery care, and car setup first.

Hope this will save you some cash!

sands - You hit the nail on the head, there is a guy who just started racing at the track I usually run at, he's good, dam good. One of his packs is a radioshack 3000nimh pack this does not slow him down one bit.

yup, practice definately...
not to mention tat u should have in-depth knowledge of your car...
know it's limitations so tat u know when to push your car...

a good mod for TL01 is
1) ball bearings (better efficiency)
2) Long arms (more stability)

hope this helps

Any body know what reedy 767s and 766 are equivelent to for Trinity brushes?

Or asked another way, what trinity brushes work well with Orion Core's or MVPs. (I plan on following the general setup advice on about.com to cut the width of the brushes to square. Is this a good starting point? What about leading edge or trailing edge cuts to alter the timing?)

Thanks

I was told the 767's are about equivlant to Trinity 4499's and the 766 are the about the same as the 4503... I don't know if this is true or not so I can't say it's 100% right.

Guys;

Trinity has some new Brush charts in most of the recent R/C magazines. They're useful for comparing Trinity brushes.

Aside from practice, here are some of my personal suggestions:


Check out the fast guys at the track... what car kits are they using, that's usally a good guage of what cars are good to start with.

Don't be afraid to ask them, they'll usually be friendly enough to help you with the basic stuff.

Nothing beats practice, practice and more practice.

Sorry to say sands but there isnt a comparable when it comes to trinity brushes.They are just made up different.Trinity Brushes DO NOT work well in Reedy,Atlas,Corally or Top Based motor's(All made at the same factory).
I have tried a bunch of trinity brushes and cant get the same performance.

I've heard 767s are good, how do they compare to 766s? Run them polarized?

Or putnams?

What's the recomended setup for MVPs or Orion Cores?

sands - I run 767's in my Mvp, stock springs with a little taken off the neg spring(just a tad). I've done all the proper prep work(align brushes and the rest) and my motor can keep up with *almost* any monster I've ever raced against. It can pull harder out of the corners and has equal speed on the straight. If you want your motor to scream then do the laydown to stand-up brush trick(cut down laydown face to look like a stand-up) but since I don't race on tracks where rpm rules, I'd rather keep the extra torque and stay with full face brushes.

Putnam's and trinity brushes work really well in Epic Based Motor's.
I havent had ANY luck with Putnam's or Trinity's in Top(Orion),Atlas(Integy),or Reedy Stock motor's.
I would run the 767s like he's stating and maybe even drill a hole in the middle of the positive side brush.

On epics, a hole will give a higher rpm and more efficiency at the sacrafice of torque, same for top based motors?
