lifetime of carbon brushes

Hi Turion,
According to your experience, to how many hours do you estimate the life of carbon brushes of the modified motor Mat MY?
Personally, I experimented with a ZY1016. When I bought it, I did not know that its collector had 20 poles instead of 16 as on the MY.
For good results, I found the solution that consisted in reducing a little the thickness of the carbon brushes, but the two that receive the collapse of the coils are now completely worn, after a hundred hours of operation only.
The other two carbon brushes are still good.
