Matrix do a nice 19turn, last years model, (I've not tried their newest one) very punchy and plenty top end.
Chameleon based 19turns are good too, I'm currently using a nice Demon tuned version, which is a bit more flexible with the gearing than the Matrix, but does run hotter.
The Ready Quad mag seems fast enough, not used one myself, but it can usualy just about keep up with my car
Then there#s the new Peak Vantage 19turn with the V2 endbell, I'd like to try one of these I don't think they're much more powerful, just very very easy on the comm.
Thanks Herm & Gazz,
So far I'm not too sure about the V2 where it's heading so I'll stick most probably with the matrix, need the punch and top end.
And from where I'm running I definitely won't want a hot motor
What's your current gearing? thanks again guys, appreciate it.

Speedway PAL also makes one but it`s to BLING BLING for me

Thanks for the PM Dave...and right back at ya

GTO2 gearing is dependant on the size of the track you race on. Ive seen everyting from 4.8!! upto 7.7 used very successfully this year. Let us know the rough size of the track you race, Im sure Herm will have a good starting point for gearing your Matrix.
