#56 drill bit is .0465". 1/16 would be to big but a 3/64 would be really close.

I ran mine last weekend on a small indoor carpet track (80'x40') with a 30.5 mm rollout with touring car. Temp. was right at 170-175*. The motor was REALLY REALLY. Tons of pull any place in the power band.

take care

Hemi is about 1/2 turn short. Mabuchi X-over style would be 19 even.

I have no info on the uk vs. us spec. Sorry...

Thanks for the thoughts.

I did get mine up to a max of 160 degrees while trying to find just the right gearing for my indoor track. But I wasn't too sure about having it that warm, so I backed off on the gearing a bit. I didn't need the extra speed for that track anyway.

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?

What are the benefits of drilling the hole in the brushes. I've done it to my brushes before, but mainly because my more motor savy buddies told me to.

Since I'm trying to become more motor savy myself, I would like to know exactly what effect the hole in the brush has.

Thanks

I've drilled my brushes for years until I found out from the "Motor Man" Big Jim Grenemier. Big Jim said that the hole in the brush contact surface caused more pressure is applied to the area surrounding the hole in the brush with the same amount of pressure from the same springs, with I am guessing less or equal drag on the brushes.

Placing a cavity or "HOLE" in the brush to me seems to run a hair cooler and my top end speed seems a bit better as well.

To me it seems like you trade low end (punch) for some top end (RPM). Don't go by what I say though....I don't know much about motors.

There is that small sacrafice of punch when you place a cavity hole in the brush due to there being a little less contact patch on the surface of the comm. No one here in Norcal will spend the time to tune their motors the way we do so that's why they always want us to do a motor for them If the rain ever stops it's curtains for my fellow racers once I hit the straight

No different spec, they're all the same and they're all legal.

Well if it gives a boost to RPM with a sacrifice to punch, then drilling the hole would seem to fit with this motor. Even with a sacrifice to punch, this motor will have plenty of torque to spare. But it could do with a little more RPM, at least for TC racing.

I think I'll give the hole a try.

JPHRacer also mentioned the use of Silver springs. These are the Hard springs and are harder than those that come stock with the motor, what is the effect of harder springs on RPM and Punch.

Thanks.
