Default orion core

I find the stock brushes are the best for performance verses life and yes if you dont have any serations left they are not much good.

hope this helps

Would 767 Reedy brushs work well with the stock core motors? What is the part number for stock team orion core stock brushs?

Trinity,Putnam brushes DO NOT work well in the following motor's.
Orion Core's,Peak Hellfire's,Reedy MVP's and Integy Atlas Stock motor's.They dont seem to like the different makeup that these companies use on their comms compared to Epic(Trinity)motor's.
All those motor's I listed are made at the same factory as Epic's are made at another.This could be the reasoning.
Also why those other companies magnets are 10x's better.
Personally for offroad and onroad reason like the Reedy 766's and reedy 767's for the Orion Core's and Peak hellfire's.If running sedan or 1/12th scale with them it's best to due to BIGJIM/Reedy Brush trick to them.If you need this info email me.
If you wanna run them full I like 766's on both sides for truck on small to medium sized tracks.I like a 767 on the + and a 766 on the - for small to medium sized Offroad buggy,Sedan and medium sized fast flowing offroad truck.
For BIG fast tracks I like the 767's on both sides.
To make them come alive try the BigJim brush trick in sedan.Makes for some nice motor's that will be pulling most other motor's around the track when it comes to the infield.

How do, I find the BigJim's brush trick? I forgot to mention I have been using this motor for offroad buggy racing.

FYI Laydown brushes on a standard sized comm ( aprox. .270") create dead shorting on the comm segments 6 times per revolution of the motor. This shorting tends to cause exsessive amp draw that does little or nothing to improve output power, it basicly just causes effciency to drop. To emiminate or reduce the shorting, you can trim the brushes so they are not so wide. Typical laydown brushes are like .192" wide or soemthing like that. .175 is about as wide as they really need to be, so triming .015" is a good place to start. I think Big Jim's MVP trick brush is like .150" wide at the face once both sides are trimed. There is absolutely no reason to go any smaller then .150" and I find .175" typicaly works a little better for me, and I only do the trailing edge...

So which side of the brush is the trailing edge? take a look at this and if you have further questions ask.

How do you trim them? You can use a small file if you don't have anything else... or if you have a Dremel tool with a cutoff wheel you can use that... Or if you like fancy gizmos, you can go find a brush factory type thing for $80 or so and use that... I do mine by hand with a Dremel tool most of the time, a file the rest of the time, because I don't have a fancy jig...

I was reading the Big Jim site and when is Reedy going to release their new stock motor to replace the MVP? That motor has been around for a good while and it seems to me that all they are releasing are batteries

Big Jim had been working as a contractor/consultant to Reedy for some time, and had been saying for about a year or more that Reedy was going to relase a new motor that would be better then any other stock motor on the market and basicly introduce a lot of advancements in technology, etc...

Big Jim no longer has any affilation with Reedy. By his own comments has no idea if/when any new Reedy products will be relased.

I've stoped hoping for a new Reedy stocker for some time now... if/when it happens I'll buy one just to see... untill then... well it's all vaporware so to speak.

serrators... well... I've never had any luck re-serrating brushes. My motors typicaly run just as well with no serrations as they do with re-serrations... Fresh brushes with fresh factory serrations do seem to work quite well... Even so, a good motor will run good even after the serrations are gone.

Default P2K2 Pro

Hey all,

I was just wondering what the best spring set-up is for the P2K2 Pro? I just got it, and wanted to try it out in my touring car, as I have a smaller, tighter track. I have it in my TC3. I am running the Trinity E brushes (same as Reedy 767's).

Thanks,
etzkev

etzkev,

E brushes are NOT the same as 767's...FYI. 767's will be easier on the comm and generally a bit more torque, 4499's (E brushes) will be much harder on the comm and usually more RPM. I'd stick with 767's.

Try red springs all around and 767's.

Thanks for you help Brian. Haha, I'm sorry I was wrong...but you didn't need to jump all over me! No hard feelings. Would you say the Red Springs would do good with the 4499's...or something else?

Thanks,
etzkev
