Default Gearing for mod

Hi
I finally got to run my old (still in the packet) D6 yesterday but I'm not if I've got the gearing right as the motor went well the first run but didn't reach full revs the second run. I had a look at the com and it was silver, I'm running XXX octagonal brush and a 24.8 rollout on a 40 metre straight or so.
The timing is advanced 20 degrees which is how it came.
Just wondering what could be the cause of the com over heating.
Thanks, Drew.

Its an 8 turn double flat wind. Was super fast for one heat. Then just quicker than a 19 turn the next. I thought I'd get 2 runs before it needed a cut.

24.8mm is a little high in my opinion for a 8 turn on a 40 meter straight (depends what the turn before the straight is like...), I have never had much to do with flat wire stuff but I know they are supposed to be pretty rippy acceleration wise. I'd say go back to 23mm or so and give that a try. Without knowing more detail about the track (layout i.e., technical, flowing, high grip/low grip etc.) itís hard to give any reasonable suggestions.

The comm turning silver is bad, I would look at running some different brushes and springs, timing it differently (depends on what batteries you run) and then play with ESC settings and see if you can get better wear out of that.

To get the most out of starting a thread, list as much DETAIL as you possibly can......

The turn before the straight is a 180 degree corner and isvery slow. The track is pretty low grip and is a bit slower than brendale. I'll try turning the timing down to 10 or 15 degrees.
Thanks, Drew.
