Default Tamiya Type-T Motor

hi guys, i just bought a type T, and was wondering.....

theres some sort of chip board on the motor....what is that?....is it some sort of on board capacitor or somthing?...does this mean theres no need for a shocky diode and capacitors?

anywho, why did taising change to this Type-T for the race?...whats wrong with the old one?

I've been told that the "chips" are in fact capacitors.

The reason why Taising probably changed the stock motor type is because Tamiya no longer makes the sports tuned motor - which makes them a little more difficult to get your hands on to race with. Again, this is just an educated guess.

Nipple, can you please confirm.

Yes the 'chip' are capacitors.These mean you don't need to solder the 3 caps. from esc anymore but still need the diodes for "non reversible"!!! ESC.

As for the change.....people are saying sport tuned is a bit too slow. And type 'T' is a new model and the other race that use 23 turn motors had great respond so we decided to change.

Hello S'pore,

in our club the Type T is the most popular choice as they have more punch than any other 23T stock motors (we run Stock 23T JMRCA motors)
How much is the price in S'pore?
