Default Reedy 19T Quad Mag Motors

I just started racing touring car at my local track and I'm using a Reedy 19 Turn motor and it just doesn't seem to be very fast. I was wondering if anybody knew what brushes or spring combination I might try or gearing. I've also heard of some people using ceramic bearings in the can.. does this help at all?
By the way Im running the TC3 if this helps for gearing. Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance

well you have to gear them tall... with rubber around 6.7 to 6.9 on a average size indoor track... taller yet outside on a big track. 767's seem to work well

Default quad mag

I ran these motors and seems that a final of 6.00, to 6.43 was best for conditions on a track with 120 ft straight away.. I ran tc3 geared 72 ,,,28,29,and 30 pinion to test these motors and there fast .. 767 brushes stock springs .. the power band in these motors was best at 6.43 but i over do it a little ... hope this helps..

Default You have a good motor there

I have the same one.

Can you cut the tab and reduce the timing? If you can , go for 12 to 18 instead of 24* timing. Gear it tall. Yes 767s are the best.

Stock bearings are fine, make sure the hoods are aligned perfectly.

Actually if anyone is running the Epic 19Ts then they are cheating too as they have adjustable timing. Besides, you want to reduce timing on the Quad Mag Reedy as it performs better. 24 degrees is just too high.

When you are running your Quad mag, how warm does it feel after the race? Also, where are you topping out speed wise on the longest straight. Depending on the tires you use ( low foams vs standard rubbers ), don't be suprised that with the stock spur you are up in the 28 to 32 range. My tires were extremely low and I was easilly doing in the 35 range for pinions with the stock spur.

If you hoods are perfectly aligned across from each other, that will due alittle timing retardation for you when the brushes cock alittle in the hood. I would start at 18 degrees of timing and work from there with the motor.

Also, the motor seems to put out the most power when the 767s have the serrations gone. Thats what I have noticed.

Its only cheating if yer local track says it is....

If the track allows adjustable timing 19t, then it should not really matter if people cut the tab to adjust timing, especially in the Reedy 19t Quad's case, since you would reduce timing to go faster....

the mistake most people make with the Reedy Quad is running with too small of a pinion.

If you aren't happy with the speed, go up a bunch of teeth and keep going up until your laptimes slow down or you don't make run time

I can't remember if ROAR rules say "maximum of 24 dagrees" or "Fixed 24 dagrees" timing. If I use it, I run in MOD class anyhow so it does not matter to me.

Nobody asked if this guy is running a quad magnet Reedy. If its a RTR, it comes with a 19t motor that is, lets just say, not race worthy..
