I think that the Fantom 19T is just the same thing as the Trinity C2. They look completely similar to me, somewhat like the 2PK can, with a different color. I will get both the Fantom 19T and the Reedy Quad Mag to compare.........

You are correct the Fantom and the C2 are the same. The small motor tuners do not make there own motors but buy motors from the larger ones, tune them and then put there own lable on it.

as far as the differance between the quad mag and the C2 is the quad will have more torque and less RPM. the C2 will have a ton of Rpm and so so torque. If you are running on a tight track I would sugjest (sp) the quad geared very tall. A large open track the C2.

Default Question

Sorry if this has been asked a million times but i need to know whats a good motor setup for a small but fast track.

I am currently running either whatever came with the Reedy Quad, and i am also trying 767+ 766- both with holes with red/purple springs.

Please let me know some new setups, or if i have to change my setups, thanks

Jon

I like 4499's with the edges slightly sanded...
for me they ran cooler than 767's.

I thought quad mags were more rpm based? Anyway, I know the Fantom motors are based on an existing motor, but whatever it is, the winding has created a great motor. I'm going to start comparing lap times with a Reedy quad mag.

the trinity quad mags (ie bianary stock and outlaw 19t) are RPM based but the reedy quad mag motor uses a large com which means more torque but can gain speed with proper gearing as in any other motor.

O kay, that makes sense, since I've found that the Reedy's seem to work best geared around 6.12 ish.

Ya go with the 100t 64 pitch spur gears. Gives you good torque and top end with those 19ts.

Ok.... As JD's been saying we went 19 turn.... I've had nothing but grief with the Reedy.... I'm in the ballpark of 27mm rollout.... I ran the motor for the first time last weekend, it was fine... Cut the comm, replaced the brushes went back this weekend and the motor sucked... Using 767's purple/Red.... I was getting 164-168 watts on my dyno compared with 144 on the Chameleon.... The motor had no torque, no power and even stopped a few times... brushes weren't hanging up, went so far as to put new brushes and springs on it.... Not a happy camper here... When's the V2 hitting our shores???

vtl1180ny- hey try some purples all around and see what #'s you get. Maybe try some 767 and 766 with holes. I am running a few combos but right now i cant tell which is the best for me right now since i only had the chance to run 2 of them.

On my dyno I actually liked the Red/stock silver combo....

I tried the 769's which are 767's w/a hole in them.....

I'm think the purples are too much for the motor....

Try the purples. Thats what I run. Only problem is I can only get 3 runs out of the motor. It's hella fast, just doesn't last long.
