Hi TC Members, 

 

Its just came to my attention that there hasn't been a thread created regarding Tamiya Brushed Motors, regarding what some of these motors are designed / best suited for, etc. 


As a complete RC novice and getting back into this wonderful hobby, I feel like this information could become beneftial for all and make motor choices a little bit easier by knowing more about these motors and what they were intended for or specifically used for, etc.

If some of you guys can contribute in the comments I will update the OP with the added info, also if I have missed any motors please let me know. 

So here we go!

More information can be found on @Gruntfuggly's page https://www.zaonce.com/stuff/tamiya-motors.shtml

Thank you! 

Link helped finding some info regarding the motors. 

I have also done some further research and practically finished the motor guide! I am missing only 1 motors info, which is the Tamiya ACTO -Power TRF Tuned. 

Has anyone got a box or some info for this motor and what its been designed for? I know it will be a competition motor, but is it for On or Off Road? Or for both applications? 

Thanks,

The TRF tuned motor was aimed at the touring car market, being released in the early days of Tamiya's touring car line up, probably with the TA03 chassis in mind, thatnks to David Jun's success with the chassis.  The off road motor at the time was the pink motor. 

The Tamiya RC guide books at the time were also touring  car/on road heavy and the various tuning charts in the books for motor gearing were all based on on road chassis.

This is a picture of a page from a guide book from 2001.  It has some new chassis charts compared to the guide books from the 90's, but the information on TRF chassis compatibility and gearing is the same.
