First motor I bought to race with was a Twister Yokomo stock. A few years later, I was sponsored by Twister.

Some kind of Kyosho mod (Le Mans I think). They came in every color in the rainbow and mine was gold. First real race morot was a Trinity Monster horsepower flolowed by a Trinity "Pure Gold" 18 double with a machined endbell, still have it in perfect shape.

Mabuchi - the Black motor! The one that cost $17 and had the bearing on one end. I still have two Race Preps with the orange endbell. I keep them for trips down memory lane. There was also the Igerashi's, Johnson's and lets not forget the Yokomo/Reedy's that you could buy for either $8 or $12. Yep, that's right, $12!!!

It was a Kyosho Gold, back in the day. I used it in my Tamiya Super Champ for off road racing in the mid 80's
More recently a silver can 540 Mabuchi for 540 Pro racing.
