Alex: Sweet... Thanks for the testimonial.

Ray: HURTING!!!!! Hope that wasn't from my side..... Thanks for letting me know, like a said I'll get that out Tuesday.

Also another thing bout the VXR pack:
if it goes below 9.0volts then its toast, and if you charge it, then it will catch fire
with my 3PK before it was a bit heavy with the 8 cells and now with 3 cells its friggen light!!!!

Ti3 uses a stand-up brush. Its a good can with a brush dampening system and onboard caps.

You can't beat the Ti/Ti3 with the Reedy 777 or CS Silver brush. I used to be a V2 guy but I had to set up my V2's so aggressive to keep up with the top local mod guys (Reedy and DC drivers) that they became one run motors. I had to cut the com every run and replace the Sprint Edges every 2 runs.

With a Ti3 I still cut it every run (just a skim) but the new silver brushes are good for 30+ runs with the same power as my V2's!

This is all for Sedan Mod with 7-8 turns.

I think the XXX brush may have more power than the CS and Reedy brushes but it draws a lot more amps so its harder to make run time with it.

The CS and Reedy brushes are more efficient and have more than enough power.

All three brushes are good, XXX, CS, Reedy 777...... Some are more expensive than others but performance amongst the three are nearly identical. Comes down to preference, and what's available in your area....

My area is online... so everything is available.

So far I've been more then happy with the XXX brushes, but I may get a set of CSs and see how they go with the Ti3.
