Curtis- wanted to report that your stock motors ran well this weekend at the US Central Racing Series race #2. Ran one of the new DC Monster based stocks and it was very fast. Qualified 4th and finished 5th in the A but motor was not an issue at all in my not getting a top 3 finish. DC power works on the dirt as well as on the rug.....

thanks for your help

Jeff Werner

The Ti3 is awesome...IMO definitely better than the epic stuff. It's eerily quiet for a modified motor, too.

Hey Jeff, thanks for the feedback…. Glad the monster stock was to your liking. So what did you think of the XXX mod in your off-road 2wd buggy? I talked with Ken briefly and he said you liked the 12x2 torque arm over the RPM type….

Hi Curtis,

I have been running your cobalt 7x1 UL and am very impressed with the performance. Saturday I also tried the cobalt DC 8x1 and was also impressed. My first question is why the brush on the 8x1 was the regular and not the xxx type. Second.. is it worth trying out the regular silver 4380 compound on the 7x1 UL of course knowing how harsh it is on the commutator?

HI rfy,

Glad to here you like our XXX series mods..... The first batch of XXX mods were sold with the 4383 compound brushes instead of the XXX brushes; this was before we decided to offer the XXX compound brushes standard with every motor. So there are a few motors floating around out there that have 4383's instead of XXX compound brushes....

My thoughts on the regular brush compounds – When using 4380’s, 4383's & Quasars slightly more power can be obtained, but at the sacrifice of brush/comm wear... The XXX brushes work well, providing good overall performance while nearly doubling the lifespan of the commutator. In my opinion this offsets the performance loss that would be gained by using standard compound brushes…

Curtis,

Curtis- I liked the torque arm for type of offroad track we have. It is blue groove "on road with bumps"....lol The sedan type feel was great in mod buggy. If I were on a loose and loamy type track the RPM arm would be great and actually is easier to drive at times.

It was a very good weekend and DC power was a big help.

Jeff

Frank....you were flying in stock class this past weekend. Your TQ run in stock was faster than most in mod . DC Monster stock and DC cells helped me take 8th in the stock a-main and a DC 10x1 powered me to the win in the modified b-main......not a bad weekend at all. Great job Curtis as there were quite a few guys running DC motors and cells.....thanks to Korgae I guess
