Default Quick Motor Question

Can someone tell me how good are the Reedy TI WE 13x2 is it a good motor like the Cobalt 12x2? i know one is a 13t and the other a 12t but is the power the same way? because the cobalt 12x2 i borrow was crazy fast.

you can't go wrong with either one. But I wouldn't be suprised if the majority of the people at your track are using the colbalt over the reedy.

The Speed Gem motor will certainly not perform like the Cobalt since it is machine wound, but the performance will be fairly close. Brush life should be about the same. Overall the powerband and such for the SG2P motor should be pretty similar.

If you want the power of a Reedy or Cobalt, but better reliability and less brush and comm wear, you might want to look into an Peak Vantage 12x1 or 12x1, or even a 13x1 (my suggestion).
