Which Reedy

After racing stock and 19, I will be racing modified for the first time at a junior championship. What are the differences between the reedy motors (ti, kr, pt), and which one is the best to buy at the moment. I see that the kr seems to be the most popular, but I have heard that it needs tuning and regular rebuilds to keep it up to pace.

Thanks in advance

I think the pt is more for 1/12 racing, lots of rpm's but not much torque..
and what mod doesnt need tuning and frequent rebuilds?

I would recommend the Ti. It is a fast motor, but on top of that it is very easy to set up and always runs well, whereas the Kr can be finicky. Just use Reedy Quasar brushes in the Ti, and keep the comm trued and you'll be in good shape.

The Ti's are right up there in terms of performance. Just a really solid motor.

my core (modified ) is a gerat motor on the tight and twisty tracks, same as my D5..they have bags of punch...


i recomend getting a V2 tbh...loads of people there will be using them...so no problems getting a decent gearing

Give one of the Orion V2 motors a try. Those are extremely popular around here.

One of my good buddies, has the V2 (8x1) in his XXX4 and I was AMAZED on the comm and brush wear on that motor! I know if I run mod touring this winter, I will be getting a V2 13 or 12 turn. I haven't heard anybody say anything bad about these yet!

All the Reedy factory drivers are running the Ti motor now.

That said, the Peak/Orion V2's are for real. Just as fast as the Ti bit you can get 3 runs before you need to cut the com and 9 runs before you need to replace the brushes (Enduro).
