For high-speed track use 10 Turn motor or less. Of course you have to use 3000 batts for it.....

oops. this is absolutely the contrary of what I found on the dyno and on the track. These motors hava a lower RPM compared with previous models from Reedy (or other manufacturers) but have higher torque (very significative).

I just go up 1 our 2 pinion teeth to compensate and the motor is excellent.

Follow the link below and you'll have the dyno testing for several brands and models

GM Evo4 has better torque and RPM compare to Evo3. But I have problems with run-time using these motors...

antoniop : I have tried both (Evo4 and Reedy Ti) with same gearing, standard factory-timing, same windings (8x3), and with equal Battery performance. Although I feel the Reedy Ti is smoother/not as powerful as Evo4 but I get better lap times...

Sure,

I agree with you. These Ti seem to have a smoother power band.

It's the motor of choice for my Pro 10. It delivers the power so smoothly that the car becomes faster in somo points where the other guys have to be very carefull with the trigger.

The larger pinon compensates the top speed and the final result is better lap times.

If I was looking for hihg rpm this motor would be a disapointment, but that's not the only thing that counts.

They are very very good.

What do you guys think about the Team Orion Touring Chrome Modified Motors? I just bought some 3000 cells from them and I'm VERY happy with there preformance, and just wondering how they would match up with there motors!

Default Chrome Touring

Well, I never saw a guy unhappy with them.

In fact one of my best motors is a 11x3 Crhome Touring.

The top racers around here end up choosing 10 and 9 from Orion due to their durability and performance.

If you look at the dyno testing on my page I have results for a 11 and a 9 and both are above average.

The only motors that are so consistent are the ones from Reedy.

It's difficult to buy two motors and both being good. On the Orion range it happens all the time.

Orion's Chrome Touring motor is good..... The only problem is their price.

ive had good luck with my orion chrome touring motors. i have an 11x3 and a 9x3. i prefer the 11x3 for our long track because i found the correct gearing where i run consistent lap times and still make 5+ minutes. however, my 9x3 is faster on the straights but i cant seem to find the right gearing for 64pitch on my tc3. i get better laptimes with the 11 turns.

I'd start at 28 - 30 mm depending on track layout.

Thanks Guys!
Reedy Ti's are possibly the best motors in the moment that you can get. In Europe we're racing with a 12T limitation and is one of the most used. The two winds are simmilar, but quite different, I'll try to explain:

Double winds: Very high torque, impressive low and medium rpm's. It comes with a 'low timing' (12) but, you can get the most of this motor in the band of 18-22. For ratios, you can gear it as low as 5.4:1 (32/72 in my TC3).

Single winds: Very very simmilar to doubles but with a less low end torque, very sweet and very constant acceleration. Comes with a low timing, like the doubles you can get the most of it timming to 18-22.

For all of these don't mess with springs and brushes, they likes Quasar brushes and Off-Road springs.

Default How fast?

Can someone here tell me how fast these motors are? Say on a regular TA-03 or HPI RS$ Sport 2 with bearings....how fast you think these motors? 30mph? 40 mph?
