Is the eraser method of cleaning the commutator and brushes not used anymore? We used to do it that way in the 80's the blue school erasers worked the best!!
((LOL.... :GRIN: in the 80's, man I'm getting old!))

Keep the erasers away!!!! It changes the shape of the comm and can also change the shape of the brush. Just clean the carbon off with Electrical Cleaner or with rubbing alcohol.

Hahaha... Calvin, another 'old' school racer asked the same question at the shop last week... lol. next you're gonna bust-out the Hot Trick parts for your car.

As for altering the contact patch - John is correct, as long as you replace the brushes the same way, all you are doing is cleaning the carbon build-up that takes place from running the motor. Cleaning in-between rounds can help improve the life of the motor since you are not running with dirty brushes. It will allow you to run a few more runs without having to cut the comm.
