I meant the V2 endbell in general, I read the rest of the posts. For example, you manually align normal brush hoods, is there anykind of "general" tuning for V2 motors?

No if you ever saw one you'll see that the brush holder is mounted solid in the endbell. !

It sounds like you couild still gear them higher. Here in the UK a typical gearing for a V2 is about 4.9

(on the same track a C2 would be geared around 5.6 ish)

We tend to only use the V2 if the straight(s) are short and the track relies on accelleration - the V2 develops a lot more torque than the C2 / Reedy Quad.

4.9 thats low!

We have played around for awhile with these motors and found optimum gearing between 5.3 and 5.6.
Remember its a small dia com, more for mid and top end. But somehow the motor likes this gearing and pulls hard without over heating!

Yea see this is the info i was talking about , at least we know what he WAS gearing the C2 motor to have an idea for our own track as to how much we would need to go up.

for my tack i know a C2 needs a FD of 8.1 (tight carpet track)
so with the V2 19 i will try a 7.5FD

For all i knew you could have had a FD of 6.5 and went down tot he 5.4 with the V2 19.

The car doesnt make a difference really but my 415 in 19 with a c2 takes a different FD them my tc4 does to make them work good.

Would have word it differently maybe I would have given you a different answer. I thought you already new the gearing for a c-2 at which point you would have known the difference from the ratios we had been posting.
Well atleast you got the info you needed with a little xtra!

Keep in mind that UK tracks are big and sweeping. 4.9:1 is not that big a gear. At the Euro Champs in 2003 they ran 12T Mods at 5.5:1!

Anyone know how this motor stacks up to the Trinity 9teen? I am in the market for a new mod as well as new 19 turn if its better than the Reedy Quad Mag.

Adrian I know but at full throttle's state race i had 5.2 and it was fast.

They also do alot of indoor carpet racing, big brother didnt specify. Still that is a very low gear ratio.

Yup, your right. I ran my Reedy 19 at 5.7:1. You sure are fast with the standard brush Element.

$59.99 for a 19t.
the Peak version I got at $49.99 is a bargain.
