Question on motor maintenance -

Yesterday I used my brand new Team Br00d BluePrinted P2K2 to take 1st and TQ the first round of our Winter OffRoad Series in Rookie Stock Truck. As I arrived late I was only able to run the 3 qualifiers and main for a total of about 17 minutes of racing (in the 2nd qualifier my battery wire popped). Anyway, I was wondering what motor maintenance I should do before the next round. Is it necessary to cut the comm or should I just spray out the motor, re-oil the bushings and call it a day? I appreciate any insight you can offer.

James

for max power out of a stock it is always good to give the comm a cut and clean everything out as well as making sure the brushes are still good. if you really dont feel like going through all of that then just cleaning it like you said may do it some good. i am not an expert, but by my exp. i would say if you have your own lathe and willing to take the 10 min to cut it i would do it.

Hey Eddie, is the site down? I'm having problem getting on. I'm thinking if site is down, maybe your email too, therefore I'm posting here instead.

Wondering if the pre-sale of the batts is open?

Thanks!
Dom

James, for club racing....you are fine to just give the motor a quick cleaning....clean the brushes with a comm stick....then clean the comm real quick....you should be fine....might be wise to give a cut on the comm before the main...

At a big race though, I would cut the comm every run and replace the brushes as needed....

The website is up.....batteries are in tomorrow and will be shipping on tuesday like mad....over 100 packs have already been sold!

CCristo, KR arms are coming....probably next two weeks....the machinist is working on the trinity arms now....KR arms will go down to him next....

Later EddieO

Hi Eddie

I'd like to know what's your take on the comm diameter limit for a C2. I've put my C2 in the car for the finals, and it was a dog, not very very slow but not the good runner it was a week before. It had been cut two times since last sunday where it worked great. Gearing was right for it, but it was far from having the punch and speed of my Atlas.

Now the comm is 6.80mm at the moment, I suppose it must have been somewhere around 6.85 when i used it the week before. Conicity is good, there's only 0.02mm difference in diameter between both ends of the comm. I'm using XXX brushes (admittedly not brand new, but they're not short by any means) with the spring combos that came with the motor.

What's your take on it, is it dead or can i carry on using it a bit ?
