  • Mixing brushes on Tjets?

    I've heard some folks will mix brush brands for Fray style cars.

    Anybody willing to give any advice? Send me a private message if you would rather not make it public!

    Yeah I know, a dyno would help alot in this process....

    MY VRP dyno really lets me see the effects of what works!

    i found that 2 wizzard brushes works best for me in most cars.
    i have had others that do like 1 JB and 1 wizzard

      That is different, and I've never heard of it. Why would mixing to different brushes work better than a matched pair?

        I have heard or seen it from a few of the top racers around

        But what I am finding, is that basically nothing in t-jets is repeatable
        (there are basics that are the same) but try to make 2 cars from the same parts and see what you get)

          Mike - my driving SURE isn't repeatable, that I know for sure.

          I do know for sure that the wrong brand of brushes will surely make or break a car, that one is often easy to prove without a dyno. The old finger-dyno.

          Been meaning to tinker some on the Slimline Tjet, and various brush options, but haven't gotten around to it.

            I got a pair of Wizzard brushes a while back, and they didn't even come close to upping performance on my T-Jets the way Thunder Brushes do. Though it is like Mike said, no two T-Jets will work the same using the same parts, or different parts. They are a strange, and fun chassis.

                Why? Which ones work better? I don't remember, and I can't find them now. Figures.

                    Yeah, the dark ones were junk. I raced for a whole season and nobody told me. Thanks guys!

                      I use Wizzard brushes, I used Thunderbrushes until the Wizzard brushes became available. They did not make my cars run faster, they made them faster longer because the comm stays cleaner. Wizzard brushes are 80% copper and they do look different than Thunderbrushes. If I remember I will poll the guys in my club and find out what they use.

                        That's where the dyno comes in!
                        i can see the changes without going to the track

                        in general i get more speed with the WIZ brushes!

                        That bad batch of wiz brushes really sucked!

                          I think I must have had the dark brushes. I'll try out a pair of the bright copper Wiz brushes. They really must be good to out perform the Thunderbrushes.

                            you can try mixing & matching as well!

                              The T-Jet takes a weird setup for sure. Diffrent weight fronts from side to side. Different motor brushes. 1 JB and 1 Wiz is the setup. Getting back into T-jets from taking a few years off. Same things that worked then work now.

                              Will be building a new dyno. However what the dyno cannot do is pickup setup, laptimes and handling. Gotta get on the track for that.
