Just curious, why would you not align to accomodate for brush shift?
The Reedy Quad magnet,like the quad magnet mods from reedy, generates slightly more power with less timing than 24º. Since the spec motor is locked at 24º the brush shift will retard the timing a smidge and give you slightly more power. I think this is about the only motor that I would suggest not aligning the hoods to compensate for brush shift.
All this information came off the Big Jim forum on rccars website.
