I really like the 766 brushes they put standard in the motors. You can run red red for a little more bottom end on high bite as well. I have just started playing with brush springs on these motors and red/red is not too stiff.

Thanks Casper, and SOOOOOOOO glad you're home!

Now I can stop worrying about weather!!

My guess is J97 may need help with gearing more than

set-up. These tight tracks seem to throw everyone off

in the gearing department. Might want to post what you're

running the monster in J97.

Does anyone know where the Sizzler is for the Cactus??? YES,

I will be making the trip this year!!!!!

You running a truck or buggy and what brand AE or Losi? Monsters are not the best motor for tight tracks as they have tons of RPM. Black (p2k2) or Blue (CO27) motors are better on tighter tracks as they have more natural torque. Monsters (green) can work though. So Cal is a pretty tight track with better then average traction and people have had good success with monsters. You just need to gear them down low enough.

Last night my motor had a burning smell after every run. Any reason why? I had the motor turned and forgot one shim on the top. Think that had something to do with it or perhaps I didnt clean it good enough after the com was turned.

Oh after I rebuilt it I hooked it up to my charger to break in the brushes. Everything was fine but when I installed it in my car and turned it on nothing but smoke came out. I had to take it apart again and found a half inch piece of metal wire inside. How that get in there I thought Thats the second time I have had that motor smoking.

It's hard to tell exactly what happened to it without looking at it, but it might be a good idea to drop that one by the shop to have a look. Where did that missing shim go? If it was floating around in the can, it can do all kinds of wicked things.

im running it in a bk1 1/2 18/82 is where i was last time but i was going to start with 20/82 this time. I have 2 co27's but they dont have real good rpm's one is 21,203 with 100.2 on the torque.the other is 20,874 with 101.0 on the torque. but the last time i raced there i could keep up with the big guns in the techinical part but got whooped in the 50 ft strait by a car lenght or more!The only reason i wanted to run the banzai was for the rpm. am i looking in the wrong place for top end?

Banzai mom, Thanks for the motors, got them in todays mail.

Keith had stopped by with some batteries during the first round so I did not run.
But After round 3 was over(and I was killin them with the Banzai Blues),We sold all the stocks, except one.

I gear 20/78 with the Banzai Blues with the Gen 1 tranny. Go to a 21 with athe 82 spur. The Monster I would not go higher then 20/82 as they will over heat and fade really bad. I usually gear my motors for the infield. You will make up more time in the infield clearing all the jumps and getting out of the corners faster then winning the drag race down the straight. You may want to try 19/82 with the monster to see how it feels. It should be better in the infield and still let it wind out in the straight for the top end you are looking for.

Downtown-- Let us know when you get a chance to run those new EP cells. I am sure you will like them!

I have tried the stock white foam. I think it is a little soft. I liked Bomb 1 Better. If you have lots of traction you may want to try proline grey white 2 stage.

As Keith mentioned. I like to answer questions so ask away. The only dumb qustions are those that are not asked!
