Default Springs

Red is what would be best for Stock, Purple is stiff for stock. Spings keep the brush on the com. Stiffer springs act like putting the brakes on the motor.

Red on + and green on - are a good combo. Red and Red works good for TC should have more torque. More load, more current, more tension needed for best running motor.

Lighter spring like green is for more RPM. But you will sacrafice torque, or get burned brushes if you are drawing a lot of current like in TC.

Just my $.02

Alot of people ran purple+/red- in their monsters at my local track through the winter. They were very fast. Obviously they were sacrificing high wear for high performance.

Start with a 96 or 100 Spur Gear, probally 96 and go from there.

I think i am running with 33-35 with my monster. I tend to gear my monster higher than others. When I gear mine low, it is a fricking dog.

Hope this helps....

Why purple/purple? Is that the ultimate setup?

Default More on Springs

I agree with Cain and who ever else said it. The sonic fiddle stick is the way to go. You can set the tension of your springs and try it out. Set em soft, run it on the track and see what happens, Stiffen them up and run it again. Really works. Then you KNOW what they are at instead of colors. I think KT has em, team Pardigam and of course Big jim. Its a well spent $14.00. You will have it for ever.

I will post a link later

I'm not a huge fan of the Orion Core stock. It gets really hot just like the MVP...partially because the arm is based on it! Don't get me wrong, it produces a [email protected] load of power, but its just too hard to gear and excessive motor heat is my number one pet peeve. The MHP is my motor of choice for almost any track.

What are the part numbers for springs I can use on my Monster stock motor? Does fantom carry springs for the Monster?


Also what is the best brush for the Monster when racing Onroad Sedan?

Red and green springs are very good with Reedy 767 brushes.

Part no: 4398 for red and green springs
and the brushes is just No. 767

I'm never buying a Monster Stock direct from Trinity....only tuned from now on....

I'll be leaving stock for a month or two (until I get the cash to get a new stock motor) I'll venture into 19t & Mod

Maybe I'll give my Cores a try with a Monster arm for the hell of it...Any comments?/how will this work?
