Drift Motors - D1 Zero

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Anyone know about these motors. Came across them as part of another lot. They are in great condition and appear to be pretty rare (only one on ebay for £60). Will probably sell them, but wondered if anyone new if they were any good.

Banzai still stocks the 19T version for ~$30: https://banzaihobby.com/Yokomo-YM-D1SP and some versions are also sold in Japan on the Yokomo web site: https://shop.teamyokomo.com/shopbrand/ct76/

I picked up the 35T version a while ago (as it is cheap) to use in a crawler build. I don't have many miles on the motor, so can't say much more than "it works".

While the brushes are replaceable, it is not really intended to be rebuildable as the end bell is locked in by metal tabs. I don't get the feeling these are particularly high end or desirable from a collector's standpoint.

They're just commodity motors so-badged to try take advantage of Drifters sudden craze/fad for brushed (=rebellion against brushless?) that was all the craze about 5-6yrs ago. 

Some of the fancier brands even had motors with noisemakers inside; others had fan blades to circulate air which was probably more useful.
