Kinda what I thought.

Tim,

Use the KR arm in the V2 can. I have some checkpoint "Platinum" brushes that i can sand down to fit in the v2 tubes. It won't be easy but it can be done. Then use the fuzzy brush to cut the correct shape into the face, and you're off with long wear brushes in the v2 can!!

Maybe you don`t realize just how much longer the Reedy will go compared to the XXX ?
The Reedy can run rite down to a nub, just won`t dry out or burn....

Well, that may be true. I haven't ever had a pair of xxx brushes in a motor that long to find out.

I have never burned a xxx brush in any motor. I have changed them though to maintain performance due to lack of spring pressure when they get shorter....

I have heard that the reedy brush may be easier on the comm though. I haven't run a set.

Cuts down the center of an armature has been going on since the 80's....they rarely were used because of the loss in runtime....

As we got higher capacity batteries, companies started messing with things again....namely armatures cut down the center.... ORION used these armatures with great success at the 2004 IFMAR Onroad World Championships......

So, if anyone deserves credit to bringing them back to the market, it would be Orion.....

I can show ya pics from Big Jim that were dated back in like 2002 with a center cut armature (he also milled them horizonantly too).......

Keep the trash talk at home......nobody cares who had it first, especially in this case when its not even true...

There not copies, they are Dc arms.. Curtis from DC is who winds all of team broods arms.. as well as many other companies arms..

Im curious because in previous posts you have stated you have certain winding and balancing machines in your shop. Did you meen curtis's shop???

Are you kidding me??

Curtis wound a couple hundred arms over a year ago for me when peter severly burned his hand....never any since....

I will GLADLY give ya a tour of my shop any time you are up in the area....

Peter winds majority of all the stuff that goes out of here, though I do get some arms done by other outside winders.....they just wind though, the balancing and such is done at my shop....

Peter winds probably 80% of what goes out......no different than Fantom, Checkpoint, Orion, Trinity.....everyone uses outside winders....

I can GLADLY have Curtis come on here and verify it if you would like.....

And Pitcrew is the one who machines my arms.....a local guy who races and runs his own machine shop. I tried to buy the unwound ones from Curtis, but his machinist was having a hard enough time keeping up with his demand...

Again.....15318 39th Ave Marysville, WA 98271.....feel free to come check out my equipment ANY time......and feel stupid later.


Did bitter get a new account? Idiot....

He offered me his spare balancer too.....I think Don Campbell bought it....

Just to set the record straight. Orion is doing all motor winding in house. We experimented in the past with outside sources but they were not able to guaranteee the quality we expect in our hand wound armatures.

Who cares who winds the motors. They could have anyone wind them and they will still be TEAM BROOD MOTORS no matter how you look at it.

Mainly that the DC arms are just that DC arms.

I have done the machining on all of the lightened arms for br00d. It is a similar concept to what DC is doing, and many other motor companies have done. I have never even held a DC arm in my hand, only seen pictures on the net. I did something that was slightly different, and what the br00d guys and myself felt was different enough and maybe better.. RESULTS will tell.

I can tell you this. Peter Robinson does a hell of a hand wind. Br00d does wind almost ALL of their own stuff, and they do it to your order. Same with stock motors. I see them building them specifically to what the customer wants when they are ordered. I have never seen a bunch of built motors laying around.

You oughta care if you run Mod! like Rick from orion said it's the quality of the wind that matters,if you don't believe it just look at some inferior wound motors and compare them to a Brood wound motor and you will see the difference,especially on the track.Out of all the so called "tuned" stock motors I've ever ran, the Broods blueprinted ran the best.All those others are now strictly practice motors.

Im confused on what you r trying to say. Have you read all the posts prior to mine. Im stating that who ever Team Brood has wind their motors being in house or out of house. Will be close to the same quality because all they are doing is winding. The balancing and such is done at Eddies shop. So we are probably arguing the same point, but the bottom line is no matter who winds for Eddie a Team Brood motor is still going to be a Team Brood motor when it is sent out.
