Default Who still makes 23T brushed motors besides Tamiya???

Hi all,

Cheers,
Luke

Try contacting Jeff at Fantom Racing, they can still wind brushed motors to order i believe... You will have to email him though, it wont be on their website!! I thought you sheep herders would have gone to brushless like the rest of the world by now!!! LOL, sorry, its an Aussie thing ;-)

Haha yessssss the sheep hearders have gone to brushless, its just a small minority in the stockcar community seem to be wanting to hold on to brushed and nimh batteries!!! buggered if i know why, i think its partially to do with the ones making the rules are the only importers of brushed motors at the moment, so are trying to keep them in for personal gain, which is kind of sad for the sport.

oh well,

i will hit up fantom,

Cheers!

LOL, all good Luke, glad you have a sense of humor!!
I hope you find that Jeff is able to help you, maybe when you blow their doors off with 'another brand' of 23t motor the rule makers will realise the error of their ways ;-)
Sounds like its a perfect swap for 13.5 brushless and lipo's!!! Do they really still make NiMh cells tho? Haha
Good luck!!
