Default Question

I just brought the binary stock motor and it came with 767 brushes..I tested the motor first run on my CE and my reading was 12 amp draw at 4 volts,so I wanted to change the brushes,So I put green putnam on pos and neg side and useing the same spring come the motor and the motor wouldn't wake up and the amps draw was about 8 amps or lower than 767 at 4 volts
Some how the putnam brushes doesn't conduct as much as 767

OVA each brush batch varies from the manufacture...I would guess that you might have an average batch of Putnams and and extremly good batch of 767's. I have seen several people with really good 767's lately.

There are alot of other factors also. Humidity while the brushes are stored for periods of time affect them as well. Less humidity is better.

Hope this helps.

Hey Ova,

I'm hoping to lend a helping hand with your motor probs. One thing I have learned is amp draw off a charger or a motor checker isn't really a good reading of how fast your motor is. I have some motors that draw alot and are fast, and some that dont draw alot and are still fast. The putnams are a less forgiving brush, and I feel you just need to find that sweet spot for gearing. Plus, these motors wont be legal for the carpet regionals, so I'm gonna start experimenting with monster stocks hahahaha. If you still need some help, drop me a line.

I know for a fact that they are not approved. Jose knows what he's doin at the dyno, so it wouldn't be a bad idea.

The Binary mods are approved. The stocks are still illegal as far as ROAR is concerned.

OVA;

This has been a problem with recent batches of Stock Motors from EPIC (Trinity). There are several of us who believe that the Copper in the Com has been changed and this is effecting how well certain brands of Brushes perform.
