Tamiya 0.6 Aluminum Pinion Gear 27T/TA04
Haha, fair enough, ya got me there!!

But the max a stock TB01's plastic motor mount can take is 25t AV. I don't know if the alloy motor mount (with slots instead of A/B/C/D preset motor positions) can take any bigger pinions.

So the 27t is only for TA04. TA04 kits come std with 25t, and there's room for a couple more pinion teeth before you need to change the 87t AV spur (which is the only AV one they make) for something else. Third-party companies have been making AV pinions in 26 and bigger for a long time now.

Default motor

Just try the tamiya Type R or Type T motor and you will be able to see a difference. The type T and R is 23 turns and the price should be around 40 to 45 dollars. one advantage is that you can use these motors for the tamiya race in the future if you want to.

Type T and R are considered "Stock" in Singapore.

The diff between T n R is T stand for Torque while R stand for race. R will have 28000 rpm while T 27000 rpm. both motors are already quite fast for me. I also thought of using 11 turns but than i have to upgrade alot of things which will make it not worthwhile anymore.

Also, Type T has laydown brushes while Type R has standard brushes. I suggest getting a Type S or Type RR because these two are rebuildable while the Type T & R have sealed endbells.

BlixeX, if you are just starting out, stick with a stock motor. A mod motor requires more maintenance and you may not be able to control the car anyway.

Do you use TB01's chassis cover (the 1 with the 2 drivers)??

If you use cover, be very careful about ESC and motor overheating. The cover prevents airflow to the inside, so everything just cooks.

It is best to run without the cover.
