Default Tamiya Sport Tuned Motor question

HEy all.. i have a question about the Tamiya Sport tuned motor.

I have tried looking all over the internets and havent found anything that tells me if the motor is 27T.

I know its a 540... so does that make it a 27T?

Being in a 540 can does not make it a 27T motor. There are other winds in that size can. A good example would be the Trinity Spec motor since it is a 21 turn motor as I recall.

I never use these motors so I can't give you that part of the answer.

I have one. By memory it's either a 27 turn or 25 turn. Similar to a silver can in torque, but has more revs. I was told once they come off the same production line as the Tamiya silver can, but that may not be correct.

I've read somewhere awhile ago that the black can Sport tuned motor is about a 22T brushed motor?

27T for brushed is the spec-class stock motor that was started a long time ago. Technically, anything less then 27T is considered "modified" motor.

Many of the 27T brushed motor has some sort of "anti-tamper" stuff built in, but not sure how many places still race the 27T brushed stuff anymore...

Why the Tamiya Sport Tuned Motor? Why not a brushless? Are you planning on dropping it into the Boomerang that's pictured in your avatar? The BEST 27T motor IMO is Trinity's Revenge of the Monster motor...

27T is my favorite powerplant for 2WD buggies. For 4WD buggies, I do anywhere from 12T to 17T modified... I think for older Tamiya vehicles, 17T brushed is good enough.

If you do go lower in the turns, be careful, Tamiya TEU-101BK ESCs have a turn limit. Beats me if I knew what it was

Personally, even for the re-re Tamiyas, I'm scared to run anything more powerful and than the Mabuchi motors. The drivetrain doesn't look very strong (for a good reason) in these vintage re-releases...

I think they are a 23T. I bought one of these earlier this year for the Tamiya Hornet I had as a teenager. My first real rc car. Shows my age a little bit. It's a good motor for my Hornet. A lot faster than the original silver can that I had, which was about 20 years old.

The sport tuned motor is the same as the silver can which is 27 turn but the timing is adjusted and painted black. The motor is a 25 turn.

Do you mean "stock" as in 27T "stock" or "stock" as in unmodified, out-of-the-box Slash racing?

The titan is a 550-sized 12T...

they are allowing 17.5 brushless which im assuming they are also allowing 27T brushed.. and the titan.

its not slash racing based on the factor that they are allowing all SCT trucks to race. the motor si where im coming up short because the titan is too random for me.
