Alright guys, I need a little help ordering Checkpoint brushes.

I'm trying to order them through my local hobby shop (Hobbytown USA), but they can't seem to find the proper number to order them by.

Checkpoint's website list the Infinity brushes as ODOC2508

Towerhobbies(aka Great Planes) list same brushes with the manufacturer stock # as 452

The guy at the shop tried both numbers while trying to find them with Great Planes, but got nothing. Now I know that they are distributed by Great Planes (cause their website says so), so whats the trick to ordering Team Checkpoint stuff on the local level.

Any help asap would be appreciated.

ODOC2508 is the correct "Great Planes" number. Your dealer can order using either the ODOC2508 number OR the manufacturer stock #452. If your dealer is having a problem ordering, please ask him to call his GP sales rep.

GP has them, we just got a bunch in at our LHS. The part numbers are goofy, the GP part number and the Checkpoint part number don't match at all. They just need to log into gpmd and search for checkpoint and it will pop up. They have all the spares in stock.

Yeah, apparently GP server was down earlier or something, so I'm still waiting to find out if they were able to order them or not.

If not, then I'll just have to order online.

Just wondering whether you have tried running the infinity brushes and whether they are better for performance than the atlas ones?

Belgianchamp...I am far from an expert with the Money motor but I'll help the best I can.
1) Break in the Atlas Brushes for about 8 minutes at 2 volts. That will be fine
2) If you go to the infinity brushes, expect a LONG break in time. Mine took over 20 minutes but were perfect after.
3) The Money is a fixed timing endbell so don't worry about it
4) I only run foams but would recommend starting around a 29.5mm rollout with foams on a small track.

Good luck and happy motoring!

The money does not have an adjustable timing ring.

i think you could go upto about 30 degrees timing without any issues, but can you have any motor if it is a 19 turn?? 'cos if you can then you probably want to get a br00d outlaw19 or similar, seen as they are hand wound and are goin to be faster than simply a 'money' with the timing tuened up.
