looking for suggestions as im starting to race 19t this season cheers.
The Paradigm or Putnam Chameleons should be really fast. The fastest will be a Kisbey or KC Racing adjustable timing motor. My KC motor is way better than my C2, but new they can cost up to $95. If money is "really" no option, then buy a dyno and get several adjustable timing motors.

KC made me a 19 turn motor and it has a D6 can and endbell. Stand-up brush hoods. And a handwound armature.

I put a 19T in my TC4 for the first time tonight (a used C2 I picked up, fresh cut, new 767 brushes) and with a 28/72 combo it was coming off the track warm.

I don't know exactly what I should be running with that motor, but the 28 was recommended by the guys at the track as a starting point. I might go down a tooth or 2 and see how it works, but its not the car or the gearing slowing me down.. its my driving +)

Thanks
I've used it for 2 weeks now. I have endbell set 36degree timing.
It's a little less punch than my EA C2 (Chameleon2)....but no need to cut the comm. It's good for club races. But I think if you want to use it in a big race....C2 with F-Brushes.

Thumbs up

I personally have had great success with the C1 / C2 motors ... much more then the Quad. Running 767 brushes pos(+) and neg(-), purple on both with a slight tweak on the neg spring (less tension). Tried a bunch of combinations and found that the above was the most efficient .... running on a Turbo35 the amps weren't too high 9.5(+/-), but on the track the motor's fly (the best dyno). I do a couple other things to the motor but that's my secret -

As for the Dynasty, a few guys at the track are running this motor since it's pretty cheap at our track compared to the cost of the other 19T motors. The non V-bell seems to be a little better with regards to speed, while the V2 is more efficient with regards to brush wear. A couple of the fast-guys run the stock springs (tweaked to their liking), so other then 767 brushes - no idea what springs to start with. I'm gonna try green(+) red(-) as a base-line and see where to go from their.

Hey guys,

I've encountered some problems with my Reedy 19t Quad Mag's lately. The performance has taken a downhill and I'm not happy with them. I'm currently using Copper springs and 767's all around. I've done a hole in the both brushes with a #42 drill bit 3/32 deep. I even tried slotting them. My numbers according to a Pulsar Competition 2 include 2.0 V @ 6ish A. I'm aware that the no load amp draw almost means nothing but I wanted to see some figures. On the track, the car isn't fast compared to others using either Chameleons or Reedy QM's. I'm using a TC4. Spur 72 Pinion 28 Internal Ratio 2.5. That gives me a gear ratio of 6.43 and a rollout of 27.37 (using 56mm foam tires). Now about the brush hoods, I have them aligned so that wear the wear mark is in the center of a flat brush. Hoods are not aligned directly across from eachother. Motors are about 2-4 months old. I'm unaware of the comm sizes but they been cut on the lathe about 10 times. (don't know if that helps). Motors were never abused or overheated.

I think I got all the information need. If I forgot something please tell me.


Thanks for the help.
Paul

Aligning with flat brushes may not be the way to go, with the correct shaped brushes they may shift differently, next time you do check alignment try some non flat brushes. Not sure but I may have read somewhere that aligning straight across and permitting the brush shift to slightly retard the timing isn't a bad idea for the QM as well.

I believe the minimum size of the comm on the QM is .300, mebbe they are just getting too small.

I would suggest trying new armatures, 10 times sounds a bit excessive...
