Putnam monster stock vs quad magnet stock

We have a major meeting in 2 weeks were they have allowed the used of quad/binary motors in stock class. Would I be able to keep up with this motors if I ran my putnam monster stock?

danjoy 25-
Run the Putnam Monster. You would be disappointed... The binary is a little tricky to find the right gear. I run both and have had to drop to as many as 4 teeth from a monster to binary...I always seem to go back to the Monster....With time racers will fiqure out the secrets to the binary...

The jury is still out regarding the Putnam tuned Binary motors. We will be testing them shortly and giving results. Word re: the motors form Todd is encouraging.

Until your local racing permits the use of these motors, the Putnam Monster is still KING!

Stay tunned...

Sounds like my uncle found some putnam motors by the local shop by his house and is sending me a Putnam Binary stock and monster stock, testing will come soon...

In 19T motors I get about 2-3 runs before the brush looks discolored. In stock, as long as you have it geared correctly, I've pulled 7 runs off one pair of brushes, and that was even the green/green combo. Jzone and MYXTYPLYX can confirm that too.

Sushi Boy,

Please send me feedback asap, as I need to make a decision on what I will be running next week. I just want a first hand test between the 2 motors and if there is an advantage or just hype.

John-s, With the P2K2 motor a good preformance combo for springs and brushes would be ....(neg):Blue brushes with red springs,,,,(pos): Green brushes with red springs. For a slightly bigger track I would cavity them 2mm in positive . Then 1mm on the negative.

Hope this helps.

Jesse

Adding a cavity to the brush generally increases the rpm of the motor. It creates less heat in the middle of the brushes so they will last abit longer add give abit more efficiency cuz of the less drag on the com. I usually will increase in the spring tension when i do this.
