Mini- I have personally been running a full faced F brush with a red/red combo. This has worked for me almost everywhere. If you set the CE dyno up with torq steps you can see that this is the best setup in most cases. Amp draw doesnt mean squat in TC racing. I have had a stock mtor pull only 4 amps on my GFX and be a rocket. You have to gear the motor for the rpm it has.

mini
Me & EA found that useing harder springs on the F-lines made them fade about halfway into the race ,,, as you said over working the brushe, if you have a bit of arcing then run red/red this will cure the brush bounce at high revs

The grn/red combo is favoured for the monster!!! The roar on the other hand i suspect ,cos i have`nt had any roars yet with f-lines fitted! would be happy running the red/red or red/purple cos of the higher speed the roars develope

EA can clarify the roar bit though, as i say i`ve had no roars yet with f-line fitted as std

By the way mini are you still talking to me !! hope so

MR JOLLY- The red red on the f lines work well with the roar stock. This is what I ran at the Novak race. EA ended up running it as well.

Must try them spring combo's, didnt get testing 4499's against the F-lines as i've only got a limited supply left. I'll try several different spring combo's at the weekend and see and try 4499's versus f-lines.

If someone could tell me how to reduce the motor timing via the brushes it would be great.

EA

What would be the proper break in procedure for the "F" brushes running green springs for 1/12 scale? They seem to take a very long time to break in. Thanks for the help.

Just wondering what Torq step values you are using.

Thanks
