Terrific motor to replace the kit supplied silver can or torque tuned motor. The extra rpms made by this motor give you much faster acceleration and top speed. It will also draw close to the same amount of amperes from your battery as the stock silver can which is a bonus because your run times will not be sacrificed by the extra power your rc vehicle is getting. It works great in touring cars like the TT01/02, TA02, also works well in buggies such as the DT03, Monster Beetle Re-Release and Fighting buggy 2014. With my own personal experience I found this motor to get a bit faster and faster every time I ran it, it ages well! 5/5
I got this motor in my TT-01D kit. This motor is slightly faster than the TAMIYA stock silver can motor. I have tested it with TAMIYA TEU-101BK and a 4600 NiMH battery pack. The result is total run time is more than one hour (with few breaks in between). This fast motor does not drain battery fast and the color is black which is cool looking. I have compare this motor to the stock silver can motor by judging their looks. The Sports Tuned Motor has larger wire wrapping around the amateur than the stock motor. This means the Sports Tuned Motor has ample of torque which it has power to accelerate at the corner and break traction while drifting. This Sports Tuned Motor is a good upgrade of speed and power at the same time reasonably priced.
This is a great motor for you to change if your car kit contains the 540 stock tamiya motor. One of the most importants things to buy this motor is that you wont need to buy an extra Electronic Speed Control (ESC) since it works perfectly with your stock tamiya one. Your stock motor 540 J has torque around 250cm/sec and this RS-540 tuned motor comes with 350cm/sec torque so from this you can understand that is much more powerfull than you old one. Be carefull cause this motor contains brushes, its not brushless and thats why it comes with two wires( brushless motors comes with three wires and definately need another ESC for them to function). Overall this is a great cheap motor for first upgrade without buying ESC, for top speeds but especially for drifting. Higly recomended.
O motor é muito bom, nao consome quase nada mais de bateria que o original (no meu caso um tt-01e) , aumenta em torque e velocidade aproximadamente uns 25% nao precisa trocar o esc original do carro, e andando com baterias de lipo 2s 3200 e esc original da pra acelerar por 45min seguidos.
This motor is GREAT !!! I replaced the original motor in my TB02 with this one and the difference is instantly noticed. The black color of the motor looks awesome on the car. It was a breeze to change and doesn't drain my battery too fast. You can use this motor with the TEU-101BK ESC without any problems of overheating. Give this motor a shot and you too will be surprised by the performance. Without the replaceable brushes - this motor still lasts forever with very little maintenance - perfect for the novice or expert.
