Like I said, I didn't really have plans on opening the motor up, but having it arch so much drove me to cut the comm earlier than I had planned.

Got any tips about which brush/springs I should run for outdoor asphault?
the infinity silver brushes with the light springs on both sides

i found heavier springs give it the feel of instant top end but lighter springs give you more rip thats why i run the light springs

The Infinity Brushes, great performance and 20 to 30 runs vs. 5 to 7 runs for the Atlas, before rebuild. Some feel the Atlas brush is more agressive, I have used both and have not noticed much of a difference between the two.

Is anyone willing to share a starting point for gearing (off road) in a 2wd or stadium truck (FDR)? I'm not sure where to start the gear hunt...
