Casper,

I think I remember reading a few weeks ago (can find your post) that you have run the same Banzai 19T all year.

What is your post race maintenance practice? Do you skim the comm after each run? When do you replace the arm (comm diameter?)? What brushes/springs do you use?

I think it's great that you can make a motor last the whole season and only have to replace the comms (brushes and springs of course).

Thanks,
sepirts.

Scott-- That is not your place unless you got some new kids I do not know about! That is a fun house that looks more like my house. Full of suprises and messes everywhere!

sepirts-- I have been running the same KD19 for the whole JBRL series (8 races) and the HRH shootout and a couple other races. My local track does not run 19T classes normally. Just wanted to clarify "season".

My normal routine. I cut and replace the brushes before the first qualifier of the race. I then run the motor for the 2 quals and the main and leave it in the car until next time I run. I then get 2-3 practice runs in at the next race and then cut and replace the brushes again before the first qual of the next event. I try and get 3-6 runs on a set of 767 brushes before I cut the motor (usually only takes a skim) and replace the brushes since the serrations are pretty much gone by then. This ensures I have all the Banzai power I can handle! Also in the hot months when motor temp becomes an issue I highly recommend serrated 766 brushes. They produce great power and seem to stand up to the heat better then the 767 when you are racing in 100+ weather. For club racing the 766 brush will last a little longer as well. You can reuse that brush for a couple cuts with getting good power out of it. The 767 brushes really loose power quick after about 6-7 runs on them in my expirence so I always replace those brushes each time I cut the motor. I follow this same process for my stock motors. Since you mentioned springs. I do not replace my springs for the life of the motor. The only time I will change springs is if I lose one. (I've been known to misplace stuff everyonce in a while! ) or if I want to go up on the spring tension. Hope this helps!

Default Casper?

Hey there Casper I was hoping to get a little starting info from you for our"excellent" stock racers down here. Judi said that you might be able to let me know where the guys Should start for gearing on our little track. 2wd stock buggy and truck is really doing well here the last few weeks. Thanks again.

I am assuming Banzai Blue motors?

Losi truck (MF2) I would start with 17/86 for a tight track like that but 18/86 will not be too much but not higher then that.

Losi Buggies-- Bk2 Run 21/78, CR run 20/78.

Good luck and have fun!

19 will be good if you need bottom end. I was running a 20 at the big race though and had plenty of bottom end.

Kevin, thanks for the new customer!

Casper, thanks for helping with the questions!

I just saw on another thread that Brian Kinwald has been

dropped by Losi. Makes me sad. I didn't see Trinity

in his signature either!? Makes me really long for the "good ole"

days at M & M, the "old" SoCal, and most of all, The Ranch Pit

Shop!!!! I still remember the first time I saw

"The Great One", Masami at the Ranch for the Worlds! What

a treat!!

Judi
