No brush means no power

If your brushes look anything like the one on the left its time to change them! I learnt the hard way, by scratching my head and loosing running time. Fortunately, someone in the know gave me a hand. Today I was running the Tamiya RZ stock motor, which I haven't in a while and learnt a few things. Since its a motor with the old style brushes, it requires a lot more maintenance than even modified motors (a commutator lathe is required after 3 battery packs, so i'm told).

I'm going for a medium damper setting tomorrow, in practice for the Tamiya GP next weekend. The TRF pistons are going in standard PVC suspension shafts, which should improve handling I hope.
