RPM by itself doesnt mean anything. You need both RPM and Torque to make power. A low RPM motor with lots of torque just needs a higher gear than a high RPM motor with no torque.

This is a very high torque motor. It does not spin as fast as a C2 but geared right it is faster than a C2 on the track. The 19T class in the Florida State series is huge. The Reedy Quad 19 is the motor most racers choose. In sedan on most tracks in FL we run a 5.62 to 6.00 final drive depending on how big the track is. I run a 5.72:1 at my local track. The ratio sounds crazy but it works. Paul Wynn won the 19T Nats in Portland with a Reedy Quad 19 geared 5.62:1.

Crazy gearing and not to stiff of springs are key for the Reedy Quad.....like Adrian said, they used crazy gearing at nats and the cars were very fast...people who geared it like a C2 were super slow......

Eddie, what do you mean by crazy gearing? Up a few pinions?

What spring tension on the fiddle stick is the ball park?

Thanks!

Well, compared to a C2 a 5.5 to a 6.1 is crazy....

For springs, usually 7.0 FS on the positive and a 6.5 FS on the negative....though, on some tracks a 6.5/6.0 combo works better....namely smaller tracks.

I am not very good with rollout in general....

i use a 24/72 gear combo with 2.5''tires so im averaging about 28mhp but im looking for more speed cause a race on a very long track that has very few turns and the turns that it does have are not very tight

24 / 72?

How soon is your motor topping out down the longest straight?

I found for my quad mag a good starting point was 28 or 29 tooth to start with.

When we were messing around at the old LHS doing touring oval had to go up to a 48 / 72 setup. Pinion looked like a spur gear!
