I gear the Reedys in the low to mid six range for most tracks. Much higher than you'd gear most stock motors.

Is Reedy only making the Quad 19t now?? The AE website still only shows the SPEC 19t. I'd actually like to try the ball bearing SPEC motor. If it's still available,anybody got tips??

Reedy 767's and tweaked red springs. Of course you can get more runs on brushes and comm's than 1 or 2 but if your gonna race it for A-main competition that's what you have to do for it. Gearing it up REALLY wakes this motor up.
So is this a correct report on the Quad ???

Pretty much. I gear these pretty high, low 6's. I'm able to get about three runs on 767's. I use tribo on the comm and it really helps with the power and brush life.

So if I'm looking for a better motor life with less performance......is their a better choice in spec 19t motors ??? Looking for a good choice for a club spec motor. Is the Reedy SPEC 19t still available ?? Or another brand EXCEPT trinity ??

I've heard the Orion Element will give good wear. But Iknow Orion is planning on doing a 19 turn with their new Revolution motors. If you want power with good wear, you're not going to be able to beat that motor when it hits the shelves.

Default 19T Quad perf.

Evo you can gear the motor like a stock and it will still perform well, but I'm talking balls out performance with 1.17 to 1.20 rollout. The motor will last longer gearing down.

Yeah, the Orion Element is a good bet. I've been using Trinity 4499's in it, with a purple/red spring combo. If you use a fiddle stick, tweak it to about 7 on the positive side and 6 on the neg. I recently dynoed it with some cut down brushes, as Big Jim uses in the MVP's and it looked the same as without the cut down brushes as far as maximum torque, spinup and power but if you bring up the data sheet it has significantly better power after 20A up to 50A. I get about 2 weekends on a set of brushes.

What are you guys finding for the Reedy Quad Magnet motors performance wise? What brushes and springs for sedans? Do these heat up as badly as the MVPs did?

So which 19t motors will be legal for ROAR Sedan races? Will be attending the ROAR nats this summer and want to start to plan on what to run and how to tune them.

Thanks

Jeff

The best brush I've used all around is the 767. I tried 4499 and Putnam Green and there wasen't a huge difference. They just wore quicker. They get a little warm but they need to be geared through the roof to wake them up.

Default Brushes for Chameleon 2

Anyone have suggestions for best brushes to use on a Chameleon 2?

I am having most positive results using Reedy 767 brushes on a Monster Pro. Stick with those?

Have you tried 766s? What springs? Gear to the moon, eh? Sounds like Tamiya's Type R motors

766's wear forever but lack on power. The power feels numb w/ 766's. For good sized parking lots, 120 ft plus straights, I'm gearing in the low six range. I've seen them geard all the way up to 5.8! I use the silver reedy spring that cam with the motor on the pos and I've run trinity green on the neg as well as bending the silver one in a little. Seems to be running pretty well so far. Still have a few things I'd like to try.
