Default Fastest 19t motor?

Would you guys gear all the main 19t motors the same in your touring car (chemeleon, chameleon 2, element)? Which one of these motors is the fastest out of these three? How much differently would you gear them if you had to gear them differently? I'm running an old Chameleon in my TC3 and it's the only 19t motor I have because I just moved up to the 19t class and I'm interested in getting another motor. Thanks for any opinions and stuff .

I've tried the Element in outdoor racing. It's a good motor. I had it geared kinda messed up so it lacked a bit of straightaway speed but it had killer punch out of the corners. If I had to pick another motor I would get one fo those Fantom Chameleon 2's. They seem to rev alot freer. Plus I'm too lazy to figure otu what springs/brush combo works so I have fantom do it for me . Plus they do soem other things like rebalancing the armature and other little things. Hope this helps some. Hope to see ya in 19T with me...

I raced last wednesday in 19t and Jason and I had a great race. It was lots of fun, I didn't pass him ever but I caught up to him and was right on his tail for a while. Overall a great race, and I'm really excited to do some more 19t .

Right on dude! When Winter rolls around I'm going to race on Fridays or Saturdays in 19T or stock. Which ever one has more people.

The stock TC3 reedy 19T is powerless though.

The fastest fixed timing, machine wound 19 turn is the Reedy, the version with bearings. The fastest 19 turn period would be any of the ARCOR approved motors.

Really!? All of the reedy's I saw were kinda slow. My monster stock was a tad faster...

The fastest current 19t fixed motor I have run, has been the Promatch-Fast Forward Tuned... Epic can motor.

One word.... Ballistic

The reedy you probably saw was the bushing version, the bearing version is faster than even the best C2.

Must have been, I'll just have to get both C2 and Reedy. What about that new quad magent 19T with a handwound armature that they might make?

Its been made, in the process of being released. It wil run with the Arcor motors, which are the best available. The machine wound motors are low quality and you might as well buy 3 at a time just so you can get one good motor.

Thats the advantage of an Arcor motor, they are all good.
