19 turn motors SPECIALLY made for TC3s? Kinda like how Mabuchi cans are made for Tamiya cars

I'd say either an Epic Binary 2 Outlaw (handwound, adjustable timing and quad mag) or a Reedy "Flames" Quad-Mag 19 (same as epic but no adjustable timing yet better magnets)

no i didnt mean like specially made for a tc3, lol. dont worry im not completely retarded. just figured id state it anyway just because i dn the weight of on road cars might differ from one to the other, so it might effect which motor you would want i dn lol. like i said im a newb to electric on road. my only knowledge of electric rc is with an e rustler, i am mostly a nitro guy. but anyway thanks for the suggestions.

When I run 19t, I run a chameleon and it's pretty good. No complaints and it can keep up.

From what I've heard the binary 19t is fast for 3 runs then runs like crap. The reedy 19t is nice but you have to gear it very tall to get performance out of it. The chameleon is a good all round motor and if tuned well can keep up. I'd say the reedy 19t is the best out imo.

reason for 19T is an ESC with a 18T limit...ghetto its just temporary tho i plan to upgrade to brushless when i get the money, but i need something to hold me off in the mean time.

For the money, I like either the Reedy 19T Quad Mag or the Peak Dynasty ( Orion Element ) motors. They put out great power and a lot of torque, just don't be scared to use a bigger pinion than you would a chameleon.

You can adjust the timing on a Quad mag if you cut the tab. I currently have reduced my timing, the motor seems to run better this way but I will probably play with it some more as I think I may have it a bit too low as when we were messing around doing touring oval I had the motor geared 100/48 and it was cold. My tires were down to the numbs granted, but I still could have gone up a whole bunch, maybe a 54 tooth pinion if you can find one

Will do some more dyno work and see how it goes.

Another decent 19T motor is the Reedy Silver can spec motor. I just wish it used the newer magnets but it puts out really good power.

by the way, I wouldn't get an Epic. Our Local X-Ray Driver is extremely fast with his Chameleons, but the Epic was pretty much a 3 trick pony and died right after that. I think with some work on his quad mags, he could be even faster but I think with the X-Rays spur size limits he is having gearing issues with the Quad Mag.

If your ESC has an 18 turn limit that is a discrete way of saying you will blow your ESC up if you use a 19 turn and really what they are saying is stick to 27 turn motors. I would worry about upgrading your ESC before getting a 19turn motor.

Wency....we can't get ay of that cool Euro stuff in the US....like the LRP P-Brush

The Binary seems do do good in my hands....I know it'll run good for 3 runs only if you time it to the moon. My dad had one timed at 36 (I go with about a 24-26) and at the end of a full days running one of his brushes turned completely grey...lmao
