I'm using Reedy Quasar Brushes for my S-World. The Motor is smooth (less torque) but has higher RPM than my GM's EVO4.

Yokomo manufacture the can and endbell, The S-World motors are wound in-house too.

Reedy buy the Yokomo tear downs(Endbell and can) and Wind their own armatures.

Whats a GM EVO4 like? I have some EVO2's and friends have the 3's. I didn't even know there was an EVO4 yet!

I thinking about making the Jump to Modified I've been looking at the Reedy Ti motors, and I'm wondering about any thought or any suggestions about it! Also I need to know about the gearing! I'm thinking about the 12t double or mabey the 12t single!
Thanks Guys!

From my experiences, Reedy Ti has smoother acceleration but has higher RPM (out-of-the-box) compare to GM Evo4 and Peak/Orion. Very recommended for high-speed / long-straight track.

Thats one of the reasons i'm looking at the Ti! The track I race on is pretty large, and flowing! Thanks for the Information. Any advice on where to start with gearing?
