Hey Keven,
thanks for your reply!
I think one can't take it for granted and it's really good to get help from somebody who understands AE cars very well!
Thanks a lot and good luck for all races waiting for you in 2014!

update 01-08-14:
Sorry - I need to bother you with one more question:
What's it all about the position of the different cam-holders: what for do I need "low", "mid-low", "mid-high", "high"?
What benefit do I get if I place the diff up or down etc.?

Jan-Peter

Hello Kevin,

I could not find the forum for Reedy Sonic Motors, so perhaps you can help. What are the differences i between the Reedy Stock Rotors #954 (12.3x24.2) & #955 (12.3x25) High RPM / high Torque?

thank you

Both of these are higher RPM rotors with the 954 more RPM than the 955 due to less magnetic field strength. The 956 comes in the motors (12.5 x 25) which is what I feel is the best rotor for most applications. If your track is not running rules you can run a mod rotor to gain even more power.

thanks Rick for the response. I'm a loyal Reedy user since '87 and enjoyed the use of the Mach 1 series in 1/12th scale. Now that Tamiya is moving to 21.5 brushless in its Mini cooper class, I've purchased a few Mach 2 motors and rotors to experiment. Mini's are light weight, 1250 grams but fixed geared so I'm considering a high rpm rotor to offset the fixed gearing.

Is there a significant difference between the Mach 1 and Mach 2. Appears its just the alum end bells and smaller front bearing?

Hey Kevin nice work in Victoria this weekend. Congrats on your double win. When you get a chance can you maybe post up the 1/12 mod setup you used.

Default 6.1 wc setup question

Hey guys I have a question, I am completely happy with my cars setup except when I get on power in the tighter sections of my track it gets extremely squirly. I am only running 17.5 nonboosted so it shouldn't be getting that loose. Does anybody have any ideas?
Here's my current setup.
37.5 wt shock oil front and back. 40 wt in rear diff, front spool, silver springs f&b, rear position 4c&. Front is 2c. 1degree front toe with - 2 camber., rear is - 2 camber and - 2 degree of toe ( I think, I'm running whatever stock is)
Does anybody have any suggestions?

Have you tried TC5 rear arms as they are the same length as the TC6.2 front arms may help.

Check the rear outer bearings. It's possible that they are worn out. For some reason the rear inner bearings last a little better but would recommend replacing all four rear bearings. Staying off the boards or getting punted into the boards will help with prolonging the life of the bearings.

More rear tow in (no more than 3 deg) might help. The diff oil is a little light I think the car could be diffing out so perhaps heavier fluid (start with 1000).
