HeY!!!

well while you're geussing that could hurt you and mayb blow motor or something and then yeah you're just gonna waist more time wrenching on car then you should if you just get the correct gearing right away by calculating it unless you don't know how to do that exactly for your car, because all cars are different.

Well I have done both "If the motor is hot and how does it sound down the straight". I have also done the rollout thing. Depends on the race and the track. I know I have seen people blow motors because they over geared to what "sounds" or "feels" good down the straight. I have also seen people out of the race pace because they followed someone's roll out. Each motor has different characteristics; especially from one manufacturer to another. So you might say you have to do one or the other and sometimes both. Just my 2 cents.

I usually only refer to rollout when I am running foam tires. When the tire gets smaller I may have to adjust my gearing. However with rubber tires I could care less about rollout.

I was thinking about getting into a 19t class, but I was wondering what motors would be the best to try. I see the Reedy quad and the Epic quad. What else would be good.

Does anyone have any tuning recommendations for a Chameleon 2 for 1/12th scale? Interested in a good brush/spring combo along with rollout recommendations and what amp draw I should be going for when running the motor at 5Volts?

Thanks

Bob

Default Orion Element

Guys;

Just ran an Orion Element for the first time last Sunday.

Was quite different from the Monster Stock that I'm used to running.

Gear it like you would a P2K and maybe 1 tooth higher yet. Plenty of power and speed with the correct gearing.

Is anyone here running the reedy quad mag? If so would you please share your brush and spring combos, so I can have a jumping off point for tuning. Thanks.

I was just going to post that same question. I have a race in two weeks and that's the handout motor. Haven't had a chance to run one yet.

also regarding the reedy quad. i just picked one up yesterday and will try it out at the track tomorrow. Does anyone have experience with this motor and how to gear it? Considering same track layout and conditions, should this motor be geared up or down from lets say a Chameleon 2? Just need a starting point. Thanks!

From what I've heard from other people running them is that the Reedy Quad mag 19T needs to be geared up a tooth or two compared to a C1/C2 type motor. I tried a C2 and a Kisbey D5 based 19T and the Kisbey one was faster all over the track, more torque and more RPM. I would recommend one for anyone looking for a fast 19T motor.

I run a Quad 19 in my 12th 4 cell class. All I did is tweak + spring a little more tension with using stock brushes. My car was totally fast. period! I was pulling guys down the straight running 9s... They were all dumping at end of racing. Wear I still had same speed I started with.

Default reedy quad

i've been running my reedy with 767's, and factory springs & timing with a 30mm roll-out, the motor will fly with higher roll-out but the comm overheats. i have heard using red trinity springs works well on smaller tracks. so far in our 19t class the reedys and chamelons are doing well.

So what final ratio should I run on a belt drive touring car with a Chameleon 1

I am running 8.7 and seems way to torquey (diff slips even thought it's tight under hard accel)
My balls could have worn out but i just changed them and switched the diff rings around last race.

Since it is a tight track, should I leave it or lower the final to around 7.5? (or even lower?)

Let me know!
I will leave for the track at 1pm so please post!!!
