Is your D5 a dual or quad mag? I've been always thinking they're quad mag for some reason but I pulled mine apart last night and its a dual....

The D5 is a 2 magnet motor. The Epic Binary mod is pretty much a D5 with 4 magnets. The Orion v2 is a good motor for someone that doesn't want to deal with cutting coms that often. I didn;t think mine was all the impressive powerwise, but Compared to some of my Reedy Kr's eveyrthing feels slow hahahahaha.

Yea the KR will spoil you on power. They have so much low end and then rev to the moon down the straight. My V2 has a been good but not impressive.

I got a D5 12x1 a while back and wasnt all that impressed and have since got a Reedy TI 10x3 and it screams. obviously the 10x3 should be faster but the difference is unreal..
for motors, I now wont buy anything but Reedy.

as far as 2 mag or 4 mag from my testing 2 mag is generally better but if you come across a DIALED 4 mag can you cant beat it. Only problem being it is rare to find a super dialed 4 mag can.

What do you do to the KR motors ro get some power out of them?

I've got a 12X1 and I have bent the standard brush springs to 180° as REEDY recommends.
I use the REEDY 766 (Actron) brushes.

I have tried to gear up and down compared to my ORION Core motor and I have tried different timing but nothing seems to wake this motor up...

Low end power is bad, mid range is soft and the top end is not there. Its like there’s a rev limiter on it...

After one run the brushes are toast.

The Core 12X1 has more power throughout the range but efficiency is not so good.

I've seen a few V2 motors with some serious power around here so they dont lack power for sure! But it takes some tuning to make them perform from what I've heard.

I have had great luck with my v2's, i have run the 7x1, 8x1, 10x1, and a few others but those are my favorites. Tons of speed, but i am only getting 1 or 2 runs on the brushes before time to change. I run on carpet of on a big asphalt track with touring car. I also run the 10x1 in my 12th scale, and get around 10 to 12 runs on a set of brushs, with tons of rip.

OleC, from my experience you have to gear the Kr's like they are about 2 winds hotter than they really are.

Also, what are you setting the timing at? For a 12 turn try 15-18 degrees.

Sucks that you guys have to run 12's...being able to run 7, 8, 9, and 10 turns is so nice.

OleC,

If your cooking 766's in one run there's something wrong. Despite what Reedy usually commends, I run Trinity Purple on the negative and silver on the positive. The Reedy springs are FAR to light to keep the brushes on the com. All the brush bounce could be causing the increased brush wear.

Since it's a 12 turn run a tad more timing than 1 notch (1 notch is about 12 degree's of timing) So anywhere form 12-18 degree's is fine. These Kr/Pt cans don't like mucho timing like some others do .

If you want to try some thing different, you can even try 767's and spring them super hard like with trinity silver springs all around. I haven;t tried it yet, but I have been told it works very well, and since your running a 12T it might giev you that extra edge your looking for. Hope this helps you out some.
