That's like asking which chassis is the best

I guess you can say personal preference...I like the reedy motor - seems to have more snot than a C2...But I've seen (and driven) some nasty C2's before....

The reedy is more torquey and the C2 is more RPM based (I could be wrong, but that's how they feel to me)

I'd see what's popular at your local track and go from there

Kinda lame, right??

My favourite 19 turn motor is the Reedy quad mag motor, its stupid fast and I love it. Also the 19 turn motors made by Fantom are pretty good. All you'll get in this thread is personal preference, any motor can be made to go fast if you know how to tune them properly.

Default Reedy Quad Mag

If you normally run stock then I would say go for a Reedy Quad Mag for a couple of reasons. One is price, as you should be able to pick one up for under $40. Second, it has fixed timing just like a stocker so you don't have to mess with remembering how it was set when you rebuild it. Third, is it uses the laydown brushes that you probably already have a supply of and are comfortable with what to get and from whom to get them.

Default 19t adj. timing

Check the 19t class that you want to run and see if you have to run locked timing or adjustable timing. Adj. timing is faster but is harder on the comm/brushes.

Try the Atlas based 19t. I was really impressed with it. Easily as good as some of the C2's I've had. Brahma sells them tuned/blueprinted.

Before and during the carpet nats I tested both the reedy and the C2 ALOT ( i also went back and forth alot at the novak race), and honestly, they are VERY similar. The reedy has crazy torque and you need to gear it up HIGH, around 3-4 teeth more than the c2, which can be hard espically on big tracks (ae drivers at the carpet nats were around 45-46/100 and when talking to one of them would have gone with a smaller spur except it would have messed with the car when he ran mod and thus he didnt).

The c2's are easier to get (at least they were at the times i was trying to get them, lol), and are pretty consistant from motor to motor, at the nats I ran a different motor in each of the a mains (normally is a big no no, however they all dyno'd up the same and were consistant on the track).

As far as what to do to them, I personally ran f-brushes with a vertical slot and red and green springs. Other people I know ran putnam green and blue brushes timed with great sucess, as well as the trinity xxx lemans brushes, I found 767's burned up and fell off with a minute to go consistantly enough to set your watch by it, lol. The nice thing about f's was that you can get more than one good run out of them in club racing and compared to xxx's or putnams they are cheaper.

just my $.02... You really cant go wrong though, just make sure to have your gearing correct, c2's and quad mags really like to geared high and run hot.

Default xs power 19t ...

for what i've been hearing lately here in florida, the 19 turn motors offered by xs power, have massive amounts of performance they recommend gearing them about 7 teeth less than regular 19 turn motors. they're pretty hot right now but typically, a person should grab the different 19t motors available and try each one.

c2 is the strongest overall motor. Run purple/red springs. XXX brushes. hole in center of both brushes.

check out team high velocity for everything you need.

Longer runtimes, and not as much low-end as C2. Needs to be overgeared.

I have used the Element V2 since January. Insane motor, almost no maintenance, and über stable. It never failed me, compared to my C2 wich needed to be cut every run. Using the C2 was a gamble on finishing or not.
You need to gear the V2 to the moon, but then it flies. Ultra Hard brush springs and Sprint Edge brushes. I cut the motor every 10 packs or so, and the brushes last forever. My car was the fastest(speedwise) at our track, the others used C2s and Reedys.

C2 with XXX brushes and Dynasty V2 with sprint brushes will last equally long. Both need to be rebuilt every 10-20 runs.
