    YOU can also cut the brushles if they get alittle out of wack. If you cut them they become some what new. Grinding them after they are used alittle can in some cases make them connect better on the comm, I have done this b4 when I made a few motor's out of a pile of junker motor's.

    after they wear out they are no good.you need to replace them because if they are all worn out the are too short.

    I used a grinding wheel and I know if they get worn down all the way then buy new 1's. Also, why 3 post's?

    you shouldnt use a grinding wheel because that takes more life out of the brushess provided they still have sufficiant length.instead,just lightly run them in the newly cut comm until the brushes take perfect shape to the communtator.then spray the whole inside of the motor with motor cleaner.

    i think grinding brushes would be somthing a Cave man would do no offense

    I do not have a lathe so I never could cut the com on any of the motor's I had.

    King you have no idea of what your talking about , I find you to be lacking knowledge and a green horn that knows nothing about what your talking about. I think that your a little out of your league , I suggest that you not post any more BS until you take a few lessons on basic RC fundamentals, RED

    i have ran brushed motors to propel 1/10 scale cars over 100mph for years.i replace a set of brushes every speed run and the entire motor every two or three runs before i go home.2 sets of brushess per pack.

    do understand any of this redheat?
