  • Lower RPM Flat 6 Motor

    Lowest RPM Flat 6 motor that Slot.It has is 20,000.
    Does anyone offer this style motor in the 17,000 RPM area?

      The Baby Raptor and the NSR baby King are bigger than the Slot.it Flat 6 motors. They are FK180 size.

    There's little choice in flat cans, the standard yellow motor that is supplied with racer sideways group 5's is 19k I think.

      I think it's a little more than that, Kevan. I think it's about 20,500 rpm. I'll check when I get out to the shop but I'm sure someone will chime in before that and let us know.

        I have three, all measure 19-19.5k

      It was my understanding that the "flat" style motors were exclusive to Slot.it.

        Racer/Sideways uses them too, but as far as know it's just the yellow one.

          The Sideways is 20,500; same as SlotIt.
          I was looking for an RPM similar to the Baby King (17,000).
          I learned the hard way the Baby Raptor is not the same size.

            As others have mentioned, the 17K NSR Baby Raptor but it's regular big can and not a flat can. What you give up in outright speed, you gain in the twisty bits as in it's easier to drive than the NSR King that's 21.4K and 350gms of torque. It's my favorite big can motor.

              I spent an hour or so this afternoon googling and searching the favourite Chinese selling websites, I even searched through Mabuchi's can types on their website and I didn't see anything that looked like a flat can anywhere.

                Thank you.
                Guess I’m looking for a needle in a haystack.
                I was wanting lower RPM motors for my Sideways cars for my short, tight wood track. Currently have a long Carrera track set up, so they can stretch their legs.

                We put NSR Baby Kings in all of our Sideways Group 5 cars. They run perfectly on our 70’+ wood track.

                I changed my orange can Sideways cars to the short can NSR and Raptor 25k motors. With the right pinion gear, they are at least .5 seconds faster per lap (6.9 to 6.3).

              Use the yellow one just use an eight tooth pinion.

                I had wondered about a gear change.
                They’re anglewinders with 11-28. Could drop to a 10 tooth pinion or a 31 tooth spur.

                But lower gearing might make it even twitchier to drive on a short track

              The orange sideways motors are exactly the same size as the NSR long can motors and are much thicker than a flat 6.

                Correct.
                I originally tried putting an orange can in a Flat 6 equipped car. Even with the motor sticking out beneath the chassis (used wrong motor mounts), there wasn’t enough clearance between the motor and the interior.
                Will work on two Avant Slot rally cars tonight, removing the 25K factory motor and replacing with slower orange Baby Raptor. Both of those motors are the same size.
