And yes, that is the correct motor.

This is not a hand out race.

Oh, well guessing it is a normal club race, then I have not come upon a track that does not allow the Reedy Quad.

True. Also, most club races run more of an "outlaw spec" class than traditional spec, which means motors like the Reedy Quad Mag are allowed even though they have bearings, different wind patterns, etc.

Default Quad mag

All Racer's, the Reedy Quad mag or any Quad can be run in a Roar
race if it's not handout, as state in the Additions, Clarifications and
Corrections Roar Rules, " Only single piece (2magnets in a can)
or Split magnet (4 magnets in a can ) ceramic magnets are allowed. No rare earth or cobalt magnets permitted." and Roar
did not get any motor from the company's that make these
motor's to be approved, so not even the C2 is approved for
Roar race's in 2004, there you go I hope this info clear up all about the Quad mag, and at the Nat's they ran both C2 and Reedy Quad mag.

From what I've heard you need to gear this motor unusually tall. I'm talking like a 28 tooth pinion with the 90 spur. I know that sounds crazy, but that's what everyone is saying.

Default 19 t reedy

i hear alot of talk about using 766 / 767 with the hardest spring you can find that just sounds a little agressive to me

Yep, most people I race with tell me to gear to a final drive ratio of about 6.0-5.7

My Fantom tuned Reedy 19T QM came with brushes that seemed like 766s with purple springs on both pos and neg. I heard people at the Reedy Race were bending the stock spring to 180 degrees...basically as stiff as a Trinity purple or even harder.

I'm running 767s with purple springs and I can get a full day out of the motor without hurting it. Still have serrations on the brush. Its all about gearing and finding the sweet spot. 5.8 is a good overall ratio on the Losi sedan.
