Has any of you had any problem with the commutator breaking when running low-wind motors? My new 7x1 Br00d arm got 4 packs and 1 true before one of the com segments broke, gearing were so dead on it could be so it wasn't undergeared..

Yes, I ran a 7x1 Toso edition in practice last friday night at an event, that had 6 packs and 4 cuts and I had a segment break out of the comm also. I know its wasn't the gearing because I replaced the motor with the same type (br00d Ti 7x1) same gearing and it was DYNAMITE all weekend ...... ........

I assume both motors were a V2?

We are looking into this problem....it seems the arm is moving up into the can from an unknown reason....which causes it to hit the tabs or brushhoods, which then explodes the arm...

A 7x1 is a very violent motor....tons of power at crazy RPMs....so anything out of the normal, will not be very forgiving.

Please email me both of your addresses at [email protected] and I will mail you both a replacement armature at no charge....

We use epoxylite 478....its plenty strong.....the main reason most companies don't use it, is because it requires a longer baking time.....Sterling is shorter, I have some on order to try.....I guess a couple companies have some secret stuff, thats not even legal to import into the US....but they have it, and won't tell me what it is or where to get it.....

The problem is weird, its only happened in V2s so far.....I had an order where the customer bought two Ti 7x2 and two V2 7x2....all the arms are the same, wound at the same time, soldered at the same time, baked at the same time....the Ti stuff still tearing up the track, but the V2s both had the problem of the arm shifting up and hitting the tabs or brush tubes.....

I have an email into Oscar Jansen to find the cure to the problem....talked to Joe Pillars already, he gave us some tips to try to avoid it....

Again, anyone with an arm that has seperated, just email me.....I will provide a replacement at no charge.

We stand behind our stuff 100%.....

Just wanted to thankyou for some great horsepower. I just ran your motor at the 3rd annual Southwest Championship at Competition Hobbies in Tucson Arizona and won the Stock touring car A-main. Your motors were great and never faded. Thanks again.

No reedy brushes in the shock......the shock uses the larger p-94 style brushes...most guys run the octagon silver brushes...

the octagon is better for comm life, if you want to extend it a little more, you can take a file and knock the corners off the octagon making the face round.
