Default 19 Turn?

Okay. We just started a 19 turn class here for touring cars. I know some places run them already, but nobody around here does. I bought a bunch of 19 turn motors from one of the oval racers here, but they all need new brushes and stuff like that. I was thinking of running Reedy 767's since that's what I run in my stocks. Anyone have any experience with them? What about springs? Any other suggestions?

For the chamelion, just tune it like you tune your P2K's, Springs, brushes, the whole nine yards.....

I sold a bunch, maybe it was to you. I would suggest Putnam brushes, Blue Negative, Green Postitive, this is how I get the most performance out of my motors.

I bought mine from a guy here. He was selling them for $20 each. I cut them today, and one of the comms was completely gone. Oh well. Anyways, what springs do you reccomend? Most of these have the Paradox springs (red +, green -). But I have seen some people using some black springs on both sides. Of course, nobody I talked to would actually say what they were running. You know how people are....

Never mind, I sold mine alot cheaper than that. I would recomend two black springs, a blue putnam on negative, and a green putnam on positive. That is how I tune all of mine for 4cell Oval, and they are extremely fast.

Do you think that would work as well on a touring car since they are heavier and require more torque?

I deffinitely think that the Brushes would work. Try the black springs(possibly tweak the positive spring so it is slightly harder) or try a Purple positive spring and black negative spring, or two purple springs. That would be your best bet.

I thought black was the same as green, but at an increased angle, so slightly heavier...Purple is the heaviest of the lot...Or am I wrong? (Trinity springs)
