Default Tamiya electric motors??

Anybody had any experience with Tamiya's Super Stock RR motor ?? Is this thing new?? Never heard of it till recently. Normally I wouldn't pay much attention as most of their brushed stocks are 23t....but this is supposedly a 27t. Thanks

it is a 23 turn, no rpm but gobs of torque. GT1 used this as a handout motor at Nats last year and they were pretty quick, but you had to gear the snot out of them. Laydown Brushes too

Ok, now I'm confused....I called Tamiya and although they couldn't give me specifics ( like the name on the endbell) or what type of brushes they used.....they did verify this is a 27 turn not 23. So who knows the answer?? And if you're saying this did well against 19t....then why aren't I using this motor in Stock class !!??

It is a 23 turn, same as a Type R which GT2 used the year before. Who did you talk to at tamiya?

Thanks Gary, I called them back because I couldn't remember the name of the guy I spoke to. This time they said it was a 23t. BTW, the article that got me started on this is the review of the TA04 TRF Special in the April issue of RCCA . They used the motor and quoted it as a 27t.

I thought one of those Tamya stock motors was 23t and one was 27t? Isn't there like a RR and a TR or SR or something?

I know there's been a Type R, Type S, and Type T. If memory serves one it a torque motor, one an RPM, and the third is a balance of the two, but they were all 23T.

Found through search that Type T is stand up brushes, Type R is laydown and Type RR is laydown/rebuildable. Then I found reference to 2 different RR motors...a standard version and a "gunmetal case" version. Anybody know what the difference is??

Absoultely not. As far as I know from my investigation of this for my F201, the specifics go like this:

Type T - Torque Motor, Upright Brushes, not rebuildable
Type S - Torque motor (500 more RPM then Tye T) Rebuildable, Upright Brushes
Type R - RPM Motor, Laydown, Not Rebuildable
Type RR - RPM Motor, Laydown, Rebuildable.

I am pretty damn sure that that is how it worked out, but you might want to check out the brush type just to make sure.

Oh, well lord knows why a Tamiya website would post something incorrect like that, considering they manufactured it. Perhaps you got something different because it was a handout, i dunno. But I can't see Tamiya getting something like that wrong.

Gary the Type-S was 2 years ago and the RR was GT1 last year.

Too many types.... The S was stand-up but the RR is laydown. All of them are 23T motors.

The Gunmetal can was just a running change we got the Gunmetal RR here for Nats no difference just the can color
