Rody,

Try gearing up to around 22mm and time it at around 8-10 degrees. Profile 6 should be fine, I run profile 6 at most tracks I go to on my GTX.

are you breaking it in before every run ?

I am breaking it in after cuts! What is your recomended method of break in? I used to run my V2 on profile 5 and never had a problem. When i upgraded my packs, i was told to drop a pinion and go up in drive frequency so thats what i have done...

I don't like the XXX brushes in the Ti really......I would stick with the 729 brush....or maybe the CS brush...

What timing and springs are you using?

Yeh I agree with EddieO 100%, I don't go that much on the XXX brushes in the Ti. I only used them once and that was it. Now I always use Reedy Quasar 729's. The seem to make a Ti really rippy. You still need to cut after every run tho, but fading during a race from the motor burning up is a lot less of a problem. My usual setup for a Ti (7 or 8 turn) is 729 brushes, reedy blacks springs and 9 degrees of timing (running IB 3800's).

I break my motors in running from 0.5 - 2.0 volts (surging) for 300 seconds, at zero degrees timing. Just enough to seat the brushes.

and as a note, I ran a checkpoint teardown with a br00d asphalt touring arm in it today, 6 runs 1 cut (oh what to do with the spare time...... ). Very powerful too, I hope they are available from br00d soon

Springs are Purple/Purple (as supplied), and running timing on the 3rd notch.
Also, how many runs should i expect from 729 brushes?

which motor is it ? (i.e edition) That way I can go and get one a check it on the timing jig and see what the third notch exactly is in degrees.

If you get the tuning right and you don't burn the comm & brushes up, I can usually get around 4-6 runs, with a cut after every run before they get a bit short for my liking. 729's are pretty cheap too.... I buy them in bulk so they work out really cheap... you can get them from br00d, 25 pair for $60. Thats only $2.40 USD a pair, they don't get much cheaper than that.....

Raymurus, I don't have a spec sheet really.....on the dyno, they are making more power than a monster.....they seem to make up this extra power from additional torque because of the new armature design, but while maintaining similar RPM to a monster....


Rody, the 3rd notch is 24 degrees of timing.....which is a bit much for a 8 turn....try 12-14 degrees....I am pretty sure thats why you are burning up brushes....

Jack2, they are telling us end of the month for the checkpoint stuff.....of course, they told us end of January.....then mid feb....so who knows. Keep in mind, OEM companies will only be getting the plastic endbell version....

Does the Trinity torque sleeve actually do anything, or is it useless?
