these are pretty fast motors.

I currently run Reedy 767 + with hole and 766 - with hole. With the springs that come on them. ( i think its copper i might be wrong) I might switch to purple all around. Or Red and Purple.

I am also interested in setups for this motor too.

For sedan racing try the following:

767+ w/ hole and Purple Trinity Spring
767- w/ hole and Red Trinity Spring

If you have a sonic fiddle stick use 7.0+ and 6.5- spring tensions.

Align brush hoods with an alignment bar strait accross and centered with the bearings. I use a Big Jim alignment bar which has a bar that goes through both hoods and a pin that goes throught the bearings and the bar.

Do NOT adjust the hoods individualy to compensate for brush shift.

Center the armature (as you should with all motors) in the magnetic field.

Break in the brushes (so the serrations are shiny across the entire brush face).

Then clean the comm with a comm stick and spray out the motor and relube.

You should have one fast motor now. Remember to gear up 4-5 teeth from a Chameleon 2 if that is what you have been using.

Just curious, why would you not align to accomodate for brush shift?

They are really fast. You'll be able to gear it a few teeth higher on the pinion than you would think.There is a local company up here in Washington State that makes a hand wound Quad Mag Motor using the REEDY can as well. They are called Team Br00d..........Send PM to EddieO or an email to this address if your interested. [email protected]

I am not sure if there website is done but it is www.teambr00d.com

The theory is that by aligning this way you will reduce the timing slightly and these motors run better with a little less than the 24 degree locked timing it comes with.... does it help? Maybe slightly

The Reedy Quad magnet,like the quad magnet mods from reedy, generates slightly more power with less timing than 24. Since the spec motor is locked at 24 the brush shift will retard the timing a smidge and give you slightly more power. I think this is about the only motor that I would suggest not aligning the hoods to compensate for brush shift.

All this information came off the Big Jim forum on rccars website.

Ooops.... what ottoman said.

Oh.. and Team Br00d makes some very good motors. Put one of his hand wound 19t arms in your reedy quad mag spec motor and you will have some serious power. Of coarse that's only if your track rules allow you to put a hand wound arm in your motor for the 19t class.
