This is what the Reedy team drivers use. However I use a 5.0 in most cases.

13.5 is in blinky 1/12th scale and 10.5 both blinky and boosted in WGT10..
In a nut shell is it worth making the switch from the old motors to the new.
I think they are an improvement over the old version but I wouldn't think it is worth it to trash what you have any buy all new.

The Reedy RTR combo is not slow so you might not see much difference in top speeds. The big difference will be in longevity, quality, and feel. You should be geared around 6.3:1 for maximum performance.

Thanks!
We don't run much boosted any more but my notes say 7.4:1.

It could be the sensor wire or the sensor itself. Did it ever work?

With a track the size of mine what temps should I be seeing?

The reason I ask is because I'm the only mach2 on the track and everyone else is talking about 120's. I had a really bad race night with my car and was told that maybe I should turn my timing down so I did and the car was way easier to drive.

I starting to think my bad setup is the reason I had to turn the timing down but I'm open to suggestions.
3.3:1 is a good starting point with timing at 45 degrees. To get the most out of your motor it will run hot. if you are running a motor fan you would be 150-170 degrees. Cooler is better but too cool means you are not pushing the motor hard enough.

Thanks
We have not shipped any of these for a few months so they are probably going to be impossible to find.

If it smoked in the first run the stator might be replaced free of charge or at a very reduced cost if you contact AE/Reedy.

Is this normal for this motor ?
Any fixes ?
Thanks.
You can try and set the spacing so that there is no play or even a little tight. If you want to send it back to AE/Reedy we can take a look at it and try and fix it for you if it is really bad or there is some other problem creating the noise.

Rick, can I use a sensor board from a Reedy 17.5 Sonic in a 4.5 Reedy Sonic ?
Thanks.

Yes as long as both motors are the same model (original or Mach 2).

Can you give a 'rule of thumb' for shimming the rotor ? Does one direction give more torque and the other give more rpm ?

Thanks for your reply.

I just recently picked up a used 21.5 and found that the endbell doesn't have stops machined in to the aluminum to stop the rotation of the sensor board. Has anyone else come across this?

Is it the original version Sonic? The first batch of those did not have stops on the timing.

Thanks for your reply.
With shimming the rotor the first item that has to be correct is the gap from the rotor to the sensor. So in most cases you just use the shim that comes with the rotor on that end. You can then play with shims on the pinion end to set the end play for the bearings. You do not shim the rotor to change the performance of the motor.

Will a Mach II sensor board work in a Mach I v2?

Is there a difference between the Mach 1 v2 stator and the Mach 2 stator? Specifically for the 17.5...
