Well for a short tight track I would go with the Atlas Motor.. We have plenty. Reedy is good for more high speed tracks.

I would go with the Reedy Quad Mag, and some 769 brushes. I have a Atlas motor that has shorted. I have had to make some mods to it to get it to function again. Ran into a friend that had the same problem. The retaining bracket for the Caps has shrink wrap that wears out, and once it does it smokes. The Reedy is a solid performer with many options to try out ex. brush/spring combo's.

Honestly, I don't think you could go too far wrong with any of the big 19T motors out there - Reedy, EPIC/Trinity, Atlas, Checkpoint, Orion, etc.. They're all within a few watts of each other power-wise.

I would suggest getting the same motor that's popular with guys at your track. That way, they can help you out with gearing, brush recommendations, springs, etc.

Alright! but see i am a beginner and everyone else at the track is running a 15 turn speed gem, i was given advice to start out with the 19 turn something i could handle, that is why i don't know if i should go ahead and get a 15 turn. more advice it will be well taken!

What do you gear the Checkpoint? Is it closer (in gearing) to a Chameleon or a Reedy?

I remember a magazine doing a test on checkpoint motors when they first dropped and basically they said the performance after about 30 runs was the same as the first-- I'd have to dig the mag up to get all the small details but basically thats what I remember. You think about that you could get one of these things and almost forget about it. I'm looking at one of their 19t motor myself.
