Reedy Ti's are possibly the best motors in the moment that you can get. In Europe we're racing with a 12T limitation and is one of the most used. The two winds are simmilar, but quite different, I'll try to explain:
Double winds: Very high torque, impressive low and medium rpm's. It comes with a 'low timing' (12º) but, you can get the most of this motor in the band of 18-22º. For ratios, you can gear it as low as 5.4:1 (32/72 in my TC3).
Single winds: Very very simmilar to doubles but with a less low end torque, very sweet and very constant acceleration. Comes with a low timing, like the doubles you can get the most of it timming to 18-22º.
For all of these don't mess with springs and brushes, they likes Quasar brushes and Off-Road springs.
