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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.
