Default 1996/1997 Electric motors

Ok, back around 1996/1997 I was given a heap of 1/10th scale R/C stuff but I wasn't really interested so it's all back in Australia. In a few weeks I will re-aquire(being brought to the US for me) 2 of the motors that I was given back then. I don't know much about them though.

One was red(all over including endbell) and the other was definately a mod and had a gold finish on the can(no stickers on it) with black hoods(it even had it's own hard plastic motor case ). There can't have been too many motors around then. Does anybody here know who were the major Japanese motor producers back then and do you know what motors I am talking about? (the guy who gave it too me imported all his stuff from japan)

If it helps I'm taking a motors that was probabely already around when RC2000mah cells were introduced in 1997.

Cheers

It sounds like an old Kyosho stock motor I have one on my lathe and it has the red endbell you talk about could also be a Reddy firehawk. The gold can mod sounds like a trinity D2 or D3 one of the early Dirtinator series came in a gold can. Someone please corect me if im wrong. hope this helps

From what I remember the motor didn't have the gold shine finish that the D3 can had, it was sort of a dull gold finish.

Well I now know which motors they were, a kyosho lemans stock(20t single), a Kyosho lemans 360st(22T single) and the third gold motor was a Tamiya Rx 540vx technigold (16t single).

Hehe it'll be fun running that old technigold classic.
