Quick motor question.....Trinity Chameleon 2

I'm looking at getting one of these because of issues with my Orion Element 19T. (see Speedmerchant thread if ya want details).

Anyway I see that it comes with a standard spring and an overhead spring.

I'm just wondering can the can be changed so that it takes two standard springs (diagonally opposite)?

The only reason I ask is because prior to needing a new motor I have ordered (and too late to cancel) 10 pairs of standard springs for my other motor and I'd like to be able to use them.

Thanks in advance.

I assume it's a U.S thing, let me guess it would be called a hybrid or something?

Here in NZ there is no official 19T class yet so I'm running it with mod guys anyway so no worries.

I really dont think it would be a hybrid .. if your only changing the position of the spring post .. hybrid's usually mix manuf. motors parts . (diffrent arm in diffrent cans . or brush hoods ...

if i'm not mistaken, once you change ya spring post, the sleeve that the brush is inside of (brush hoods) needs to be slotted on the other side to allow the spring to reach the brush properly

Alberto is correct: Swap the spring post and phillips head screw locations, slot the hood with a dremel for spring leg clearance, re-align the hood and your good to go. Takes less than 5 minutes.
I don't believe that infringes on any rule legalities, but check first before doing it at a big event.
