VG motor but watch the input amps- 7.2 NIMH is optimal @5A, 2 S lipos is MAX for this motor. Has no internal cooling fan , excellent torque and speed but good luck with getting spare brushes, Tamiya no longer stocks nor does anybody else and standard brushes are hard to get.
Requires extra cooling for boat or aircraft use and NOT for extended full power operation, will burn the cheap shaft bushings and seizing will occur. Overall an excellent motor for medium speed use.
The Tamiya Dirt-Tuned is a honest motor, delivers the right amount of torque for my dual motor Twin Detonator.
My two Dirt Tuned motors have now over 70 hours of load on my truck and show no signs of wear although they have been through excessive bashing. My TD weighs 3kg after all the aluminium upgrades, still the Dirt-Tuned carry this weight without problem!
The included "socks" are essential when you drive though sand or dirt.
