I know one of the main UK retailers, Demon Power Products, is interested in being able to get the stators separately, I spoke to him today.
We are both impressed with how the rotors put up to our 'cooking' lessons, but the stators are beyond repair.

Purchased a Reedy Sonic 13.5 at th ROAR asphault on road nationals this summer. Best purchase I made in years. Its a nice feeling when you've taken a break from racing and guys are coming up to you and asking what motor your running. Well worth it.

We have both tried (and fried) the 13.5's

Presumably the stators that would sell most are the Stock class motors as these seem to get pushed the most with the timing etc.

Anything that helps cut down the cost of repairs (whether through technical failure or our own stupidity ) looks good in most racers eyes

Thanks

So for 12th scale stock, would this be a better buy than an x12 stock spec?
Coming from tekin. Noisy motor that.

Yes... I race 1/12th scale 13.5 non boosted and the motor was perfect running both a KO speedo and then a tekin rs after having shorted out my KO. I have ordered a 10.5 and 17.5 from my LHS for the upcoming winter carpet season.

Anyone have any experience with directly comparing the Sonics to LRP's etc.

And what changes did you make on boost settings etc to achive the same speeds/acceleration.

Thanks

I ran a Reedy 10.5t Sonic at the weekend and i can echo what the other guys in this thread have said. Motor is really really smooth, runs really cool and super quick !

Compaired to my X12 i ran the reedy with much more endbell timing (second notch from top!) geared it a couple of teeth higher on the pinion and used about 15% more speedo timing. I also removed any turbo delay timing i had on the speedo and this help it have a linear super smooth feeling.

Never say a temp above 50c either

If any of you guys are interested if you drop me a PM i will happily share the setting i used on a hobbywing Xtreme stock.

yep.

i threw in a sonic 17.5 for tc spec this past weekend was quite pleased. i'm not going to call it a rocket, but i was able to match laps with my revtech from hot through top 5, 10, 15, and 20. felt very smooth/similar to the revtech as well. took maybe 2 more teeth at the timing i ran. it's a sexy piece, too, so i'm pretty stoked to have a viable alternative to my 'denver broncos' motor.

Your best bet is likely A-main Hobbies of Tower Hobbies in the States. However we are relaunching the Reedy website in the next 10 days or so and you will have that as an affordable alternative.

Ask at your local hobby shop. Most of them should be able to get you one within a week, and anybody who doesn't normaly carry one and wont sell it to you for what you can buy it on a-main for is retarded. Being a local hobby shop myself I know when someone is willing to walk into your shop and offer you a few bucks to prepay and order somthing you dont have to sit on and sell its quite common they will give you the deal.

I just had a bad experiance with a Revtech 17.5 in blinky touring. No excess heat and the motor somehow managed to burn up on me under 140* I've got a reedy sonic on order to try next.
