i i got my kamodo from john tag and its incredable power i love my motor john thanks also i have another kamodo and i tryed the x2 express brush with great results .

The short answer is "VERY different", but that would be mean...

The key is in the brush diameter and the brush angle...

The Checkpoint seems to be slightly larger in diameter -- this means it produces more "wrap" on the armature, which makes more power and increases RPM (all other things being equal)

The V2 brush is smaller in diameter, so it has less "wrap" -- this means slightly less RPM, but slightly more torque...

The brush angle also has an impact, but more subtle.

The Checkpoint brushes are at 90* to the arm, so there is more chance of brush "bounce", so in 19t, everyone I know changes to the stiffer silver springs. The 90* angle also means the actual "footprint" of the brush on the comm is round...

The V2 has the brushes at an angle, so there is much, much less brush bounce. This angle also creates a larger, oval shaped "footprint" from the round brush. This increases current flow, but also adds brush drag on the comm if you over spring...

The 19t Checkpoint endbell is mostly "plastic" material, so it has less heat sinking capabilities, but I've never had a heat related issue...

The V2 aluminum endbell is an incredible heatsink and really keeps the endbell cooler than any other 19t motors...

The Checkpoint mounts the bearing in the conventional manner, so it really cannot move..

The V2 uses o-rings to hold the endbell bearing in place, which reduces vibration (they say). But it also means that in a hard "hit", I have seen the bearing pop out, damaging the outer o-ring (requireing replacement). A side effect of this issue is that the armature usually will hit the tips of the brush tubes when the bearing gets popped out -- this can bend/damage the brush tubes, either causing a "hung brush" condition or making the motor not run when reassembled (the brush pops up in the tube from the impact, the tip is "dinged" and won't let the brush come back down to make contact with the comm)...

Long winded, but you asked...

Gear them the same.... the hand wound Reedy arms are only a few watts higher in power than the machine wound.

What kind of roll out for 12th scale should I start with on a small/med size track using the Checkpoint money 19t.

Remove the Springs and make sure the brush can move in and out of the hoods smoothly, you should be able to push in with the shunt without the shunt bending.

You should also check that your brushes havent worn past 1/3 of thier origional length and that your Spring Tension is good.

Hope that helps ya out.. Good luck.
