Are the V2 based 19 turn motors out in Euorope only? I don't think I've seen any around here other than ones guys have put a 19 turn arm in a V2 can.

they have been in euorope for months now . dont expect to see it here in the states until after the first of the year. there are a few motor manufactorers that convert the old element motor with the new end bell but it is still not that good. for now Ill stick with a C2

Well, they've only just become available over here in the UK.

It would suprise me that you haven't had them in the states yet - are you sure?!

And hey - being from San Diego, you'ld know Randman!!

I drove that car once. Wasn't bad at SoCal. But then again I suck on that track!

BTW, I was joking about that. We're pretty good friends. He's a good guy and has helped me out a lot.

I agree that the coverted v2 19turns right now are marginal at best. We'll have to wait and see what Orion decides to do as far as releasing the v2 element here anytime soon.

I've been assured from reliable sources that the Element V2 motors not only offer loads of torque, but very high RPM's too. What's more, the comm wear after a dozen or so runs was minimal, so performance was very consistent without the need to skim.

Sounds almost too good to be true. I get mine next week!

Default 19t motors

My locak track as converted to 19t motors now instead of the stock motor. I have been skimming this forums from the beginning to end and i noticed that alot of people either like the Reedy quad mag or Epic Binary.

I dont know too much about 19t, but would like too, i have a Epic Binary 19t with the adjustable timing. What are some good timings? I know that alot of people like the Reedy 767 brushes with Purple springs all around.

What about the Ultrabird 19t motor? Any opinions?

you know thats what I used to think.But it is far differant then stock the whole power band of the motor is more powerfull. As far as locked timming that would be a 19t spec motor The adjustable timming 19t motor is usualy a ARCOR motor used for oval racing. It is up to the Track to decide which motor would be leagel for racinf there. Most sanctioned tracks dont allow adjustable timming in touring car .

the BIANARY 19t uses p94 brushes (if your talking about the outlaw 19t) not regular laydown :ie 767's

not trying to jump on the TRINITY band wagon but I have found the C2 to be the best 19t spec motor on the market and if you know what to do to these as far as tuning them they are fast as hell

I've now raced my 19t spec V2 Orion Element motor. Boy - is it fast!!!!

Punchy, good top speed and comes off the track barely warm. The new V2 endbell and brushes seem to increase the overall power, whilst reducing the wear. I'm impressed.

At both the tracks I raced at, the V2 was without a doubt the fastest motor there - to be honest it went around the track like a modified !!

On the friday I raced it on foam tyres - hell you gain some serious corner speed then - my RS Yok SD was planted and the higher performance was really clear to see.

This afternoon, I raced it with control rubber tyres and whilst the grip was far lower, the motor has a very versatile power band so the car was still easy to drive - like 27t stock only faster!

Look out for V2 domination at a club near you real soon.........
