Eddie, you being the motor guru and all you gotta have some input on this, I bought a monster stock pro friday. figuring i didnt have enough time to order from you to get it by this upcoming friday. i put it on the track and it runs like a slave motor hell probably slower. i ran it box stock except with 767 brushes, any tips?

Nick, I'm not eddie, but let me ask you this, what motor did you have before this monster stock? If you had it geared for another motor that could very well be a reason why it would run that slow.

I was running a Dynasty 19, geared at 78/22 and changed for the monster to a 78/21 since after one lap on 78/22 it got a little hot for my liking, it was slow with the 22 and even slower with the 21, the guys at my LHS said gear 23, but that would be way overgeared.

If you were at a 22 with your 19T, you should be at a 19 or 20 with your monster. You probably cooked the magnets when you ran a 22 and then when you ran the 21 it felt slower because they were not as strong. Go down to a 20 and try it.

Opps, didn't see the 1 lap part. I would still try a 20. High rpm stocks are very picky with gearing.

Biggest thing in stocks is making sure the brush hoods are aligned, that the comm is ROUND (finish is always second to be round), and that you have the correct spring tension.

767 brushes work great, just make sure they are fully broken in.....springs, red/red is a good starting point....

Nick I ran at the Old LIR and I can tell you that you should be in that 22-23 range. You need to make sure your motors broken in correctly, bushings polished, hoods aligned etc. try not to spin the motor up over 2 volts while breaking it in. I found that when I pulled my motors out of my touring car and threw them in my buggy they were extremely good. That would lead me to believe that the high amp draw and drag of touring means brushes are seated better than just running them in for a few minutes. In turn I would say that the more you run that motor...the better it will be. Just ask Jones or Betts what it should be geared at. They wont lead you wrong. Like I said I know the old track

Considering Jones told me to run a 23........... i just re-broke it in yesterday for 10 minutes in 5 minute intervals at 5volts polished all the bearing and before that re-tued the comm, tomorrow is dooms day, it will either work or it wont. if it doesnt.. it looks like im going to be getting stomped in mod at the trophy race.
