Default Brushes for Monster Stock

I would say that the best combo for power and efficiency is the green shunt (+) and the blue (-) but if you are looking for maximum power and not worried about wear so much then go for the green (+) green (-).

Default Cut or Drill?????

Just wondering what you guys prefer when you prepare a Putnum brush. Do you drill a 1 or 2 mm whole in the brush or do you prefer to cut a slit in the brush? If you cut a slit how wide should the slit be? Does this actually help or should you just run the brush as a full faced brush? I do cut the trailing edge on my brushes. Does this affect which method to use? Thanks for the input.

Default Binary's

Has anyone tried the binarys in Sedan? Would you stick with monster stock? ..

Default Binary vs. Monster

From my experience..... I ran a binary from Putnam. It was very good through the fast sections of the track. I feel that the tight sections I really lacked the punch. I messed with the gearing and the punch got better but still was not as good as the monster. Plus in messing with the gearing I had to sacrifice some top end speed to get the punch I needed. My conclusion I guess is that the binary motors are great if you have a wide open track where you don't have to get out of the throttle much. However if you have a track that has some tight sections and some areas where you need to lift a great deal then you need to stick with the monster. The binary is not going to make or break you. It is a good motor but like every other one on the market they have certain apps that they work well in. While in others they are not as good. Just my initial experience with it.

That was my experenice with the binary. The trick is to to enter wide, and make a super smooth arch to carry your speed. If you don't the motor kinda bogs down and dosen't just snap out of the corners like the monster. The track layout a the local carpet track is insane tight right now. No one really uses the monster anymore because it doesn't have the punch. The fastest laps are set by people with the old trust p2k. I've set similar lap times with my putnam monster because it seems to have more punch than most of my stock motors.

I did run the binary in my 1/12 car and it's WAY better in that, very smooth, lots of rpm, and since they dont need the torque, it's not a big deal.

I'm going to try a binary arm in a monster can. I appears that the quad mags have interesting effect on gearing. I too have to gear the binary motor down to get torque out of it, driving style also has to change. With the monster, it does have more snap and top end.

Dr Smooth- Gearing is very important to getting the best out of your motor. If you need help with your gearing, you need to provide information like the size of the track, carpet or ashphalt, gearing, etc. Don't give up. You can always find help here.


Update from Todd: Another great showing for Putnam Motors in the Snowbirds! Congratulations!

DR S, there are alot of variables to determine if a car went any faster with a newer motor in it. Gearing depends on the track, type of car, batteries, and driving style. But to answer your question, yes you should gear the Putnam monster similar to a regular monster. If you don't notice a difference in speed, then perhaps if could be something else.

Hi Neil, thanks for your reply, but I am not
trying to knock any product but on the putnam web site it says Includes: Magnetic Saturation of the can, ("zapping" the magnets), gaussing the magnets, rebalancing the armature, well I have access to a Heins balancing machine I think it cost over $8000.00
they use it for turbos balancing and stuff
like that, I put the armature on and it was out of wack so what up with the
Includes rebalancing, if I am going to pay
for a stock motor that cost more than any
stock motor on the market I should have
everthing done as to what is said on that
product web site, but I guess that is all
words to get you to pay for a stock motor
for more money that what it cost. the proof is in the Heins not just
words.

Where did your friend get his monster? Where did you get your monster?
