It did, but I didn't like the overall feel of it on the tighter corners. I think the setup needs to be a little stiffer overall with the one-way. I also normally run Tan rears but I was running purples all the way around....of course I didn't realize that until I got home.

It didn't have a push. Believe me. I tried to drive it after the race. OMG!

At our local track we've finally started up a 19t class. I've tried the following motors, ranked as I believe most would in the class:

1. Chameleon 2
2. Reedy Quad Mag
3. Epic 19t Outlaw Quad Mag

The Epic was a huge turd in my opinion...worst of the bunch.

Yeah,

Ruben has one of the Epic 19 turn motors, I'm not too impressed with it. I replaced the p94 hoods with laydown hoods and it helped some but it's still slower than the Reedy quad mag motor. If you look at the EPIC armature you can see why too, it looks like it was wound at the Braille Institute for the Blind.

Chameleon 2-awsome performance out of a fixed endbell.

Reedy 19turn quad mag. Hard to kill the Magnets.

Redline/orion element 19turn. Again strong magnets/very fast

Epic quad mag-POS magnets-Very fast for a couple runs then the magnets go.Don't bother.

Arcor motors are definately fast-made more for Oval racing.

I have tried alot of 19's and will say this.
If your running on a VERY tight track that really doesnt have much of a straight try a Reedy Kr can or a Ti not geared as high.The TI will have alot of pull with moderate timing.Too high of timing and other motor's will beat you out of the hole.Thats why I personally like the KR for smaller tracks.Reedy 766's so they last.lil more RPM with a KR comes from a 767 on the +.
For bigger more RPM related tracks I vote the TI can hands down.Fastest and most reliable motor out there for sedans or 1/12th.
Epic and Trinity motor's Im really coming to hate.These things have the crappiest magnets you have ever seen.They are strong for 2-5 runs and then dead.If you have a $500.00 zapper and dont mind hitting them every 2nd time you run it go ahead but Im going with the quality of Reedy.
For closed endbell tight tracks it's definatelly the Orion Element or Peak Dynasty.I dont think ANY motor closed can pull these motor's out a half speed corner.For more RPM it goes trinity and then the Reedy Quad.
If you guys happen to see one in a case grab a Reedy TriSonic can with a Arcor Arm in it.Scary and has to be the fastest I have ever ran.Tri Sonic by reedy or a Corally Can.
I havent played with it much but I hear the new Atlas by integy is a decent motor for a sealed endbell motor on medium sized tracks.
Goodluck Racing guys

I have the cruddiest fixed timing-machine wound motors yet I get a decent Epic? WTF'S WRONG WITH ME? LOL

Seriously...I've had good luck with my Quad-Mag 19. Probably just like every other Trinity motor (luck of the draw) Are you guys getting the handwound editions or the "Outlaw Spec"

Kat,

The only one I have any experience with is the machine wound arm from EPIC, I'm sure the hand wound arm is much better. I've heard the new D6 can with the skewed armature stacks is pretty good in 19 turn.

Acutally mine is a machine wound too...Trinity machine winds are extremely inconisitant motor to motor. It can pull the average Chameleon

My dad has two handwound 19t Outlaw's. GREAT motors

The epic can be fast as hell but it's a one/two run motor. They get really hot which is bad for the magnets, but if you keep cutting the comm and switching brushes, time it to 35 and it'll pull as hard as anything out there. I use it for big races, but for club racing, I stick with a consistently fast Chameleon 2. I gotta try a redline.
