Bump this thread. Looking for recommended brushes and suppliers.
I had an issue with the non insulated brush wires shorting to the WARP0 frame and metal/rubber port cover (arced thru the rubber).
This went unnoticed until the Zilla controller finally gave up. Manzanita were marvelous at repairing the controller.
Dont really have a good data point for the miles/brush wear. The motor was used with supposedly new brushes when first installed and has been used in a S10 (untracked miles) and now a VW Doka (aro 3000 miles) but looking to replace them with ones with insulated wires to avoid a repeat of the frame short problem.
