Re: shunting

How much it improves will depend upon just how poor the fit is between your brushes and the brush hoods. One of the main purposes of shunt wires is that they keep the heat from killing all of the tension in your springs. The springs have to be insulated when using shunts also. It makes no sense to shunt a motor, then leave the springs bare.

I shunt all my motors. I can't prove one way or the other whether it makes my motors more consistent as far as an Index car goes, but I know it doesn't hurt either.

Re: shunting

Unless your running hi end class cars shunts are a waste of time and more trouble to properly install than their worth.

Re: shunting

They're not that hard to properly install.
