I would run the 767s like he's stating and maybe even drill a hole in the middle of the positive side brush.
I believe that this is due to the material on EPIC Coms being made of a harder Copper. But it is only speculation based on testing and my observations.

Sands that works on every can.But what Pops and I are saying is only Certain Brushes work with certain comms.So I will say it again.Trinity Brushes and Putnam's I have NOT goto work in Top,Atlas or Reedy Cans.They work Awesome in trinity cans.
Where as reedy brushes will work in pretty much anything.
Goodluck.
Pops I fill the same way.

Yah, I hear you.

I'm still learning. I was in this hobby about 10 years ago, back when non-rebuildable stocks where statndard. I was out during College and moving a lot.

Putnams and Trinitys on Epics
Reedys on Tops
Got that

Still figuring out what cuts and spring combinations work with different kinds of motors. (independent of brush selection)

Did some dyno testing on two monsters that I have. One worked best with red+/grn- springs, the other with grn+/red- springs. I used 4499s for both with fresh cut comms. Go figure.

It appears that all motors will have their own personality. I need to figure out what spring/brush/cut combination works with which kind of personality of the motor.

ergo: a hole in the pos brush will give more RPM and eff. How does this impact a speed motor or a torque motor on the track? I'm just trying to suck as much info out of anybody that knows so I can do well in stock. (My driving is good, when I'm on, I can go a whole race and not hit a board, and only miss a corner entry line every other lap or so.)

I run a 29.75mm on a medium sized flowing track and it is spot on for my track. In a few weeks I'll be running on a small asphult track, so I'll post back here later with a rollout that is probabely better suited to your track.

Default p2k pro

the p2k pro has good power and speed for the price and lasts a long time. it really has a lot of torque for tichter tracks and can he geared up a bit higher than many others. it keeps me in the winners circle!

i got a question about brushes. When the little bumps, okay, serrations wear away, and i don't have a brushes serrator, do i thrown them away? Also, what's better for stocks, serrated brushes, or non serrated.

Pro 3 Racer.Serations on certain types of motor's will help with a small amount of RPM.
Once they wear off on some brushes they actually get better.Some of it just comes with testing.
Dont throw the brush away after they wear off.

Right, as long as they're still long enough & haven't discolored, then you should still get some good use out of a pair of brushes.....

in my mind, use trinity 4499's, and purple springs. Ask more people though, i'm still trying to find my perfect combo.

Your friend needs to learn how to gear a motor!Man the whole armature is burnt to a crisp!Look at the tag and the windings.Ask some one the appropriate gearing for your track fort that particular motor.Or look for something binding in his car.Thats really bad.
