I’m new to this group and this is my first post. Can you suggest or point me in the direction of a modern motor for my two 1980’s cars?
I have a 1985 Fox that I’m looking to drive over moderate terrain at less than top speeds. I also have a 1986 Toyota Celica Gr.B 4 rally car that I am looking to mostly test drive on carpet/gym floor terrain. Both are getting new 7.2v NiMH batteries and lubricants etc.
I have 540 Technigold and Technipower brushed motors from their time but I’m thinking of keeping these offline.
I built and enjoyed these and a few other Tamiya cars between 1985-‘90 and then set them down until now 2021. The Fox was well enjoyed and taken care of. The Celica was only used once before a rear wheel part broke. I’ve recently found the parts to fix it, but back then it seemed harder to get and my Fox was more forgiving to run.
PS. I am loving catching up on the last 30 years of Tamiya RC. I recently did my first build since then with my son on a Grasshopper 2.
