that right there says you werent geared corectly for the stockstar.

Agreed. One of these days people are going to figure out you can't just swap one piece of equipment out for another and expect it to work the same. Instead the very first run goes bad and all they do is throw up their hands, say "well that sucks", and go back to their old stuff. That's been Reedy's biggest problem all along, it's not that nobody's willing to try their motors as much as it's nobody's willing to work on them.

...Or that you can't just rely on a little display with a number on it to tell you a motor's good or not. My MVP's always put out miserable results whenever we threw one on a dyno, and yet here I am with back-to-back track championships.

you tune a stockstar yet, OTE? or is it still kind of pointless without any brush compound choices?

Some guys at my track were actually shaving regular rectangular brushes down into a hex shape so they fit this motor. I think they put f brushes in and liked it.

I tried different gear ratios each time I ran it and tried everything from a 17-21 pinion with the stock 87 tooth spur in my rc10t4. I am running on a concrete oval and the straightaway speed was obviously lacking with the stock star. I am sorry, just stating my experience.

Well my T4 is packed away for the summer (it's gas season man!) and all of it's running gear went into my TC dirt late model, so even if I were to start on the Stockstars I wouldn't have a testbed to run them on.

However my late model is running a Challenger, so I'll fiddle with that over the summer, take what I learn and incorporate it into one of my Stockstars come fall indoor season, and go from there. Far as I know the endbells on these things are made identical, right?

I'd like to know too.

So what is the verdict for this motor? Does it suck compared to a CO27?

no true verdict yet. Reedy doesnt have any tuning options out for the motor yet so we're stuck with one brush compound for now.

Rick,

Can you please tell me the part numbers for brushes and springs?

This motor is legal in AU as of 1st July. I'd like some spares before then.

Kevin
