B&R Bullet 40 degrees of locked stock brushed motor ready to run and likely to blow up. They were firecrackers but boy they were fast! 6 cell stock oval, way back in the day.

Mabuchi 540S back in the 80's. Had it in my Tamiya "The Falcon"...oh to be a kid again. Broke that front bumper about a thousand times. Thing had more hot-melt holding it together than it had plastic.

Good old East Coast stock 27turn. Orange label that ran all over your hand with the first spray of motor cleaner.

I remember those b&r's. They were a beast way back in the day. Lol

First motor was a Mabuchi 540 in my vintage Tamiya buggy (can't remember model) back in the early 90's. My next motor was a Trinity Speed Gems Sapphire (17T) that I thought was the fastest thing on the planet!

LRP GT1, a sport-style machine modified motor with adjustable timing, it was 21x2 too. Came in a used Tamiya TA01 along with a Speedmaster Silver Star ESC, LRP 1700 Wolfpack battery and a Protoform Volvo S40 body.
