well ive never had glitching probs because of mine. but if you are, and adding additional capacitors fixes it, by all means add them and run it.

I was running my money motor with infinity brushes and silver springs on both ends with a rollout of about 29 and after the run the motor got to about 138F, and when I took the motor apart the comm seemed like it had been overheated, it turned to a purple color. This is running a TC with foams on carpet.

I have a quick question I could use some input on. I just cut the comm on my checkpoint and I'm replacing the stock atlas brushes with the infinity ones. I'm also going to go with the stiffer silver springs. However, the hobby shop hasn't got the silver springs in stock and I'm waiting for the springs to arrive. Is it ok to break in the new infinity brushes with the stock springs and then just replace the springs when the silver ones come in...or do I need to wait and break in the brushes with the springs that I'm going to be running (i.e. the silver)??? Thanks

Which fan system - the one from Team Tamale or the endbell post works the best?

I race asphalt in Georgia in the summer time so heat is def an issue

More fans usually equals more cooling but also more draw and weight - I would like which ever is most effective.

Thanks

Default Team Tamale

On both the T2 anf fk05 I use the Team Tamale fan mount with two novak fans.

Only issue I'm confronting is where to plug in my personal transponder.........

For a large asphalt track I'm running 4.93 on 38.23 rollout with 60 mm tires on the T2. I'm using the infinity brush with the stiff springs. Anybody know of any ill effects of this combo in 100 plus degree weather. Braking is quite the fireworks show in the car at times.

It should be fine to use the stock springs. I would suggest you break it in at 0.5v for 20 minutes with some comm drops. This will ensure the brushes break in without the comm getting heated, expanding and wearing much of a groove.

BTW, you can also add a few motor shims (0.3mm-0.4mm) in between the brush and the spring and still use the stock springs.

Thanks for the input. So will adding the shims act just like changing to a stiffer spring?

Much More makes a "C" shaped brush spring preload spacer for the Check Point motors. You can add and remove them without unsildering the shunt.
