Default Reedy Quad Spec in a 415MSX... info..

Hi there,

Just trying to find out who's running this motor and what tuning tips I cant get to make it better. i run the Quad mag in my B4 usually, but I have another brand new one and I want to tune it to see what I can get out of it in my TC Foam 19T class. Yes I have KD's and Dynasty's and they are great just drying to be different than everyone else... I currently run the 415MSX w/ TA05 pully's.

brush/spring combos would be nice, maybe some FDR's, and roll outs.. thanks

We have been running that motor for a long time in the FL State Series.

The best setup is as follows:

Trinity XXX Silver Brushes
Orion Black Heavy springs

Break it in for 8 min at 2v with a fan. The amps will be crazy high for the first minute or two. Keep breaking it in until the amps are holding ~10A.

As the motor breaks in it will get a silver skin on the comm which will give you crazy holeshot power for about half a lap. If you want to make the motor more mellow for the first lap just run the break in voltage up to 5v for a few seconds. At 5v the motor will rev like crazy and then the amps will drop a little and the rpm will drop a little.

After you run, skim the comm, clean the faces of the brushes with a comm pen and break it in again for 5 min. The motor should pull between 8 and 10A after 5 min. Repeat this until you loose 1mm from the brush length or you get 8A or more amp draw after break in.

Try an FDR in the 5.70-5.90 range and look for average lap times (never fast lap) to determine which is the right ratio.

FYI, The Orion/Peak Element/Vantage 19T is faster than the Reedy and you gear it about the same. It has more bottom end and runs cooler. We set them up the same as above.

Adrian, the V2 element is the aluminum endbell version with the round brushes. Sprint edges with a MR spring? So for the confusion and thread hijacking!

With the V2 I ran Sprint edges with MR springs. The problem was the Sprints only are fast for ~2 runs. With the V2 endbell you have to get to the moon. I ran an FDR of 5.20 with the V2 Element/Vantage 19T.
