Will recommend you to hold out and wait for the new Yokomo 23 stockers to arrive. Either that, or head on down to Rotor Hobbies and check out the Kawada stockers. You might wnat to check out the ball-bearing equiped "modified" 23 turn motor there. Price should be ard 60-70 bucks.

Cheers
just knew that... just bought a tamiya type R... just started in R/C, and thought the motor will quite expensive coz the ESC is very expensive compared to motor...

any recommendation on gear ratio for tamiya type R in a tb01??

hi there,
s$40 for a 23t stock motor is quite ok, but to pay s$70 for a 23t bushing stock motor is crazy man!!! u can easily get a machine wound ball bearing modified motor for less than that price at around s$60, eg yokomo S-Pro, trinnity speedgems series machine wind motors etc from as low as 8t onwards. just me S$0.02!!

Pretty much the same for any car...total ratio around 5.x region......I normally go for 5.4 to start and work from there!

Alan, that $60~70 23 turn motor was Lan Lan buy one, it's a Tamiya Stock Motor (Type RR) to run the recently concluded Tamiya Race series
I know its bloody expensive, but its way cheaper to get a rebuiltable stocker than to buy a new stock motor every other race

Cheers

Talking Sorry guys..

BUt I have been kind of busy with a few things..and testing the new ECHO and Xenon 23T stocks!!
all I have to say is you better put the new Yokomo`s aside ..because these will blow them away tons of torque and RPM and they all have a stand up brush.!!!!!

also I`ll have the pic`s of them later for you all..

Post Tips needed

Hello everyone,

what do you guys usually do to your new motor apart from breaking in the motor and brushes?
what i mean here is how to tune the motor to make it faster.
What kind of brush is good for stock racing? any recommendation?
I found out that several drivers in my place are extremely fast, but i don't know what they do to their motors. care to share any pro tips?

Are these motors readily available in North America?

Are they priced higher/lower that ROAR stock motors?

Can anyone point me to a set of rules for 23T racing?

Thanks!

Thumbs up OK here is the Goods

OK ...I`m back now after a few days of testing and I have to say that the new ECHO 23T Stock is the best hands down by far!!!!! the PQ and the P versions are the best.....(Xenon is also based of the ECHO rotor now too..)

I can gear this thing at 5.55 ( best for the PQ ) and it has tons of top end and loads of torque!!!!!

anywasy take a look at the Comm!!!! I have never seen anything like this...I hope the guys in the states pic up on this soon!!!!
