I've had my Peak Spitfire for a half a year now. I think it's pretty durable and fast, but I haven't tried the others yet. My next will probably be the P2K.

Cole, what brushes do you run in your spitfire and do you cut them or anything? Also, what gear do you run?

Gear: I'm running on a small (90 meters) track, which is medium tight. I'm running a HPI Sport2, 48 pitch. 93/23=4,04. The final drive ratio is 8,5 (2,1*4,04).

Brushes: Standard.

Cutting: I've only cut the comms once, that was about 30 packs ago. I'm still using the originals brushes, which I haven't cut. I assume I've run about 30 packs before the first cut.

I'm racing and compeeting in our club. I plan on racing with other clubs this season.

Maybe I should add, I'm using Orions Speedy Drops for about every 5-10 packs.

Just got my P2K.

My Spitfire blueprinted data:

Max 23.011 rpm
8,6 torque @ 16650 rpm
105 watt @ 16650 rpm
62% is the best effiency @ 18595 rpm

P2K:

Max 27.988 rpm
189 Nmm torque
129 watt
72,5%

Hard to wait...

By the way, do anybody know what's the unit for measuring the Spitfire torque?

I use the GM3s and the P2Ks for touring. I'll use a purple/+ and a red/- on the P2k and Red/+ and a green/- on the gm3, both react very good to 4499 Trinity brushes and make sure to keep the bushings well lubed. Niftech makes a great bushing lube that I put on my bushings before EVERY race. It makes the bushing look like polished brass!
