Default Tamiya RZ and TZ motor

Can anyone explain to me what the difference is between the Tamiya Super Stock RZ and TZ motor. And what are the differences in regards to the S and RR motors?

RZ is a RPM version .... so more RPM
TZ a torque version --- more torque

RR is the older version of the RZ (super stock type RR)
an R are the original versions (type-R an type-T)

get the RZ if your circuit have long straight and high speed turns.

get the TZ for small technical circuit.

Actually Marc,

You were a spectator at the Euro's in september weren't you?
Since you were there at the incredibly beautifull track of AMCA you must have seen that the TZ motors were no drag at all. In fact, i believe that the TZ is faster then the RZ. I've tried them both on the large track of AMCA and found the TZ to be the faster of the 2.

Best Regards

Well based on raw figures from a Dyno, "Racing Lines" magazine did a review and comparison of the two motors. On all parts of the motor, the RZ was the most powerful, but the TZ's only benefit was runtime (efficiency).

I must admit, I always thought that the TZ was more torquey, but when I took it out and put the RZ in my F201, I could notice just as much torque but with a bit more RPM. That's my experience anyway.

The thing with these machine wound motors is that no 2 are ever the same. Thats prob why we both have different experiences whit these.

I know that at the Euro's my kwalifying motors were ok, but the one i got for the finals was a total DOG! These were TZ handouts btw.

He R.... never knew that you were 'Hardriven'

Yep I was there at the euros on my hometrack helping those stranded in the grass............

I justed wondered what good it will do to switch to the TZ and RZ, because I still have the S and RR. To be honest I could not notice any difference between S and RR during the 2004 Dutch TCS.

I guess I will take one of each just to give it a try (better spending money on the sport than on the wive )

Zien we je nog in Swifterbant deze winter?

Its just fun when people don't know who you are
Most of the Dutch and Belgian RCers know my handle is HardrivenRC. Had this name for over 10 years now

Swifterbant will be a no no for me anymore. The fun was out of it when they changed the layout so that everyone breaks their cars. I don't want to drive 200+ km, sit in the cold whole day and break my car. + We have our own indoor winter challenge now here in Antwerp.
I will drive at AMCA next year tough!

CU there
Roy
