I've just started racing 19T and I'm loving it. It is a good halfway point between mod and stock. Stock is just not quick enough on some longer tracks, it feels like you could go make a sandwich while your going down the straight.

Same here, we just started a 19 turn class here a few weeks ago, & I'm really starting to like it. We definitely have more speed than stocks, but not so much power that we wear stuff out on the cars too quickly(especially tires, running serious mods on our track is BRUTAL on tires, after a couple of race days on TakeOff CS-22's, they're pretty much useless)......

theres very little difference between the 19t and the 23t. i use the tamiya 23t rr motor this weekend against 19t's and had no problem running right with them

theres plenty difference between 19t and 23t 19t has plenty power closer to a mild mod and the 27t is nothing more than a fast 27t if you've run as much 19t as we have been doing here in fla we are almost as fast as mods we even run 4cell 19t in 12 scales and we are fast! faster then six cell mod sedans. now that roar is making it a class you going to see a lot of guys stop running stock.

trust me you will enjoy the balance of power reliability, cost, and wear tear on parts its by far the best match for power in a car these motors have the correct balance for touring car!

I love the 19T class. Plenty fast, but not overly so. You dont have to change brushes every run either. I haven;t tried the 23T motors yet though. I might give them a try soon.

19t is great, but some of the motors burn up alot more quickly than stockers. I have a 19t spec outlaw (adjustable timing) that blew after about 4 or 5 race weekends. I also have a trinity green monster that I have used for a few months now that is still running pretty strong (after about 10 brush changes.)

I really like the 19T class, we run it in 1/12, and its plenty fast. It real easy on bruhses, too, and with the bearings, the heat from the motor is minimal. I really like the class. I just hope they get rid of the adjustable timing motors soon so it doesnt turn into a bastardized mod class.
