This is a great motor. Alot faster than the standard silver and black can motors. I bought my TZ motor about 2 years ago and are just about to change my brushes now. The motor has great touque and somehow seems to last longer on the battery than the silver can! Excellent value for money.
In my country GR they want 60 euros for this motor!!! Yes believe it! Yesterday i recieved my parcel witch contains between other parts and this motor. Its just wondefull. Makes ur car reeeaally fasstttt.... Use this among with car kit upgrade for tt-01 and u need nothing more. Be certain that ur car will be a diferent car and all this comes with a great great price. I ll never going to shop again because everything i need rcmart team gots for me. Great jobs guys. U are F A N T A S T I C ! ! !
A while ago I upgraded to this motor from a 540 silver can in my DF02 buggy. This provided the huge improvement I was after. The Tamiya TEU-101 ESC can drive this motor with ease, so it was about the best motor I could upgrade to without buying a new ESC. This is a 23 turn single wind motor (23x1)
Being a single wind, it doesn't rev quite as high as the other super stock motors, like the RZ, but what it lacks in rpm's it more then makes up for in torque. So just gear the car one pinion higher and it'll hang with other motors and have more torque then them.
Like the other review of this motor here, I too found that the brushes and comm last a very long time, much longer then any Trinity motor I have owned.
The motor has surface mount capacitors on the endbell, so you needn't sold..
I upgraded to this motor after having previously used a Tamiya Sport Tuned in my TT-01.
The Super Stock TZ motor provides great acceleration and also top end for a stock motor. In races, it has enough go to hang with Tamiya's other Super Stock motors, as well as some of the cheaper low wind models, like the Venom Fireball series.
It is also quite easy on brushes and I have found that they do not need to be replaced very frequently at all.
I definitely recommend this motor as a low cost upgrade to any aspiring RC drifter or racer out there.
