From the current ROAR rulebook:
8.6.9 Rebuildable 19T “Super Stock” motor armatures must be machine-wound using a crosswrap technique.
The legal 19T “Super Stock” wind is a minimum of 1170mm of round 19 AWG (American Wire Gauge) wire, having a maximum wire diameter (including insulation) of .914mm, resulting in no less than 19 continuous turns of wire on each pole. There is notolerance on the minimum length of wire, nor is there a plus tolerance allowed on the wire diameter.
Reedy sells a hand wound 19T arm for the Reedy Spec 19T. I guess with all of the posting on this thread.....Reedy has no integrity either? LMAO
