Out of the packet Br00d stocks work really really well, without seeing the track its hard to estimate gearing, as im sure everyones definition of a ''little very tight track'' is different, but somwhere around the mid 8 is a good guess....

Hope thats some help to you

Personally, I like the Reedy, as I think it makes the most power, though its harder to gear.


Later EddieO

I aggree with that,

I always had my Reedy motor down as not been that good, but once you find the sweet spot they fly.....

So im told, the atlas based motors are not so dependant on perfect gearing.

Belgianchamp,

Yes the motors come with 767's installed, and broken in so you should be ready to go. Gearing wise I would try 8.4 to 8.7 and adjust from there.

Good luck,
Steve

Leenoble0, I sent you a PM regarding charging......in the end, we recommend to charge them as per the SMC instructions on the SMC website...


6 amp charge, with a .02 peak for a 4 cell and .03 for a 6 cell, though this can vary depending on the temps in your area. If yer racing stock, you may considering charging at 6.5 or 7.....will kill a little runtime, but you will see a significant increase in voltage.

I would just like to thank Team Br00d for the stock motor which allowed me to finish 9th overall in the Australian National Championships.
