I doubt it. When I ran laydowns and high timing it chewed up the brushes.

Reedy 767's will work very well on almost any stock motor. Thats all I use on a monster stock and they are fast.

I prefer 767's to Trinity 4499's on my Monster Stock Pro motors.

Power is there and wear is reasonable.

Default Trimmed Brushes

I was wanting to know your opinions on brush alignment. Do you align the brushes to run in the center of the brush face after it is trimmed or in the center of the untrimmed brush face? I am talking about trimming the trailing edge of the brush.

And what about the springs???

Any time. Don't wait so long next time. Gotta keep you ahead of The Kid...He, he...

Wish mine was awesome enough to finish the race. Hung a brush and the car lost power and stopped dead after getting up the third. Totally jinxed in the Touring Car Challenge so far. Ran fine again on the same pack immediately after the race.

Had cleaned the hoods; so, I likely need to inspect the brushes better before installing them.

Default Re: Reedy 767 on monster

Yep 767's work great in the monster. As XXX-S Bill said they give better wear then the e-brushes.

Tandman - You align the hoods to a full face brush.

I put some 729's(quasar's) in my frankenstien stock motor today, they are very good brushes. More punch, better wear but top end was the same as with 767's. After 3 runs the brushes are spotless no wear(they look like they were run-in and that's it), comm wear is fine also.

Default How about grinding

Ok then

Do you guys recommend grinding the brushes before using them ? I was planning to cut the comm and grind the brushes with my Kose brush grinder ? What are the effects of grinding anyway ?

Thanks,

- Luie

Grinding the brush? I just run them straight from the packet, run them in, lightly skim the comm, 30 second run-in and it's good to go. Right now I've got two weeks of racing on the 767's in my monster and they still have light serrations on the brushes.

Would running the binary 2 motor be a big advantage in an oval race or about the same as running a monster?

just about everyone in the stock class at the track where i race runs either a monster or a a kisbey monster. I will be up for a new motor soon and I want to try something different.

I want to know if anyone has run a GM pinnacle Gold motor and how it performs compared to a monster. One of the hobbyshops near me as started selling this motor and i know nothing about it other than what the manufacturer states

link to GM

I know what ya mean....I started dead last, Worked up to 3rd, stayed there and my motor just started to fade (its a Monster, what do you expect?) So I dropped like a stone to 6th place....

1st Challenge race...Tried a one-way...ended up winning the B

2nd Challenge race...Motor crapped out in the main

3rd....couldn't make it out

Sounds like we should be tied for last in the Challenge...Oh well!

Back to motors...

If you're getting soft, then you should adjust your gearing....or cut the motor.
