Okay this is my recipe for the 19T. I don't have a dyno or anything like that so I can't provide numerical data to back this up. Just lots of track time.

1. Open new package containing a Reedy 19T Spec Motor
2. Solder on some capacitors to the endbell
3. Remove the brushes that came with the motor. Look at the wear on the brushes to see how close they are to being alligned. Allign the brushhoods if you feel like you're able to do it (I don't hehe)
4. Solder Trinity 4499's on. Use the straight serrated 4499's not the diagonal ones. The motor feels better with the straight serrations for some reason.
5. Cut the comm to make sure it's perfectly round.
6. Put the motor back together and shim the armature for magnet center with a little bit of play both ways. We don't want it bindy.
7. Bend the positive spring so that it's almost 180 degrees...more like 170-175 using the eyeball dyno.
8. Run the motor with approx 3V until the brushes are seated. This does not mean until the serrations are gone. Run it just enough so that there aren't super sharp edges on the brush. When their broken it...pull them out of the hoods. Spray some motor spray on a cotton swab (Q-Tip) and clean the face off the brush. You'll see a lot of poo come off with the swab (I don't use a stick because I believe they are too abrassive). RBF gets credit for this tip
9. Cut the comm again.
10. Reassemble, lube, and bolt it into your car.
11. Gear at 5.9 for tracks like Tamiya or 6.1-6.3 for tighter tracks like Socal.

That's it. I hope this helps
Cool, thanks for the info.

I've done everything else to a Johnson but not that. Would that be like drinking B**gwater too? Haha I drink one before I go out on the new bike and find myself doing 2nd gear wheelies off the turns hmmmm....

Have you found it in bulk yet? I'll have to come over and raid your cooler at Nats.

Korey like Rod said or run 766's but do all the rest. For Redmond run right at 6.0 and Stan will wonder what rocket you strapped to your ass. Last time I ran it I geared like that and Stan kind of doesn't want me to run 19T anymore. I was .4 off my Open times the motor is just grrrrrrreat.

Hmm, no super high silver brushes...... Strange. I guess so they hold up better under the high load. HAHA Stan can eat it when I kill him and ryan on the straight. MAUAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! Hmmm, I'lll need soem mondo pinions. Looks like I could use one of my flywheels of my nitro car as a pinion LOL.

Guys and Girls,

What is everyone using for pitch gears 48 or 64?

Does the Evo3 come with 64 pitch?

Can someone help me with a roll out chart for the both?

Thanks for your time guys...
