Dan,

Have you ever done any Losi Motors? Specifically the LOSB9999 1/10 LM-32K Motor?

Thanks,

Not sure if I'm the one you're asking, but no, we have not.

Yep, I was hoping a Red Dot was available for a Losi Slider.

You are correct. Tamiya #53689 Johnson silver can motors, sealed and unopened, sold in various stages of tune, from motors that have to meet TCS or local series RPM or amp draw regs, to all-out race motors that pull from 19,500-20,500 RPM at five volts.

Not legal for use everywhere, but where they are...

Malaysia? Whom should I "kill" to get hold of it???? haha

It may be a noob question but how would you wire a silver can motor to a novak GTB? the silver can having 2 wires and the GTB having 3? Then would I just switch the gtb to brushed mode?

Put the GTB in Brushed mode then wire it per the diagram.

Meanwhile, we are getting lots of inquiries about Red Dot motors from the southern hemisphere as their racing season heats up.

South Africa, New Zealand, South America- we got yer motors, right here!

Found an old Tamiya TZ 23t motor in my attic. What size bearings did Mabuchi put in these motors. I need to replace the bushings.

Best way to do this is to press them out and measure them, as I recall they had an odd sized snout for the bushing. The ID will be 5mm, but the OD...who knows? Boca should be able to hook you up with the right size once you have an exact OD measurement.

You may also have trouble getting the old bushings out of there. If I remember correctly they were pressed in and then the snout was crimped to keep it secure.

I'd figure I would have to pop them out and measure them. I have to do it anyway, just being lazy I guess. Yeah they are plastic bushings of some sort.
Thanks
