that is the fastest 19t around but your track might not let you run that motor beacuse of the four magnets you whould have to talk to the track director and see if it's ok

Although it may not be the FASTEST, it is still VERY fast. Basically how our track looks at it, 19t is 19t wheather or not it has four magnets or not, so for Nick and myself, this motor or the binary from Trinity/EPIC would be our best choices. As some drivers have had trouble with the KR Modifides, OVER gearing them is a big problem, so proper gearing would optimize the performance of the motor in your B4...

So far, I've liked the Reedy 19 in my XXX4. It seems to have good top end but needs a little gearing help to get good punch. It's kind of funny because when running this motor on road, we've had to gear it through the roof to get the speed out of it. I'm talking 6.0 gearing. But the opposite seems to be true with it in Off road. I'm gearing it lower than most 19 turn motors to get punch from it.

I gotta agree, i also use a 6.0 final drive on my G+ touring car, i'hv tried it on my T4 last saturday, and i feel that i have to gear it higher than i would a normal 19T...

but overall, this is one good motor...
