  • Replacement motor for Carrera #89200 E 200

    I would like to know if there is a replacement motor for the Carrera #89200 E200 motor. Also I would like to know if it is drop in and just solder the leads, or are there more modifications to be made.
    Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

      Most dealers are out of stock on the E200 motors, that is why I am looking for other options, thanks.

    is there a problem with the motor or are you looking for more performance

      I have a problem with a few motors, but I am also looking to see if I can up the performance at the same time.

      I just had one go bad too and those Carrera motors were out of stock everywhere. I got a Pirahna motor and it's a drop in replacement, costs less too. You have to switch the gear over from the other motor and solder on the leads from the old motor, you also have to cut the shaft off on one end of the motor, takes a second with a Dremel tool.
      It's a good idea to use a suppression capacitor parallel to the motor terminals, the digital chip and motor makers all say to do it at least. It has something to do with noise interference from the motor with the chip or something, 47-100 nano farads suppression capacitor, I used the common little tan color flat round one that says "104" on it.

        Which Pirahna motor did you use, is there a part # for it. How does the noise suppression capacitor solder on (a photo would be great if possible)

      I also had an early failure, I replaced it with stock (thinking relative parity between the cars) and immediately regretted putting another E200 in... They are underpowered, especially if retaining the original downforce magnets.

      The 104 marking represents 100nF or 0.1uF which is a common value for noise and spike suppression in small motors; it acts like a short at high frequencies, suppressing the high frequency noise. As well as the cap across the motor terminals, from stock Carrera put them from the motor can to each of the motor terminals.

        Thanks a lot for all the responses I have a lot more info than I had before. When you have to change the gear on the shaft do you have to glue it in place or is it tight enough to hold on its own?

          It's a friction fit. Carrera pinions are plastic and are easy to change, just pry it off with a flat blade. Installation on the new motor is just as easy.

            Sounds great, easy enough, I have not played around with the motors as of now thank you very much.

          My club was looking for alternate motors for our Carrera cars because the older Carrera motors were more powerful than the latest ones. We settled on Piranha motors, which are readily available and the price is right. Piranha motors are more powerful than even the older Carrera motors and since we race without traction magnets the cars became more difficult to tune. For another class we have started using NSR 20K motors, which are part way between a good Carrera motor and a Piranha.

            I also recommend the Piranha motor(21.5) and have installed 2 different ways so far. You can either just solder new leads or transfer the leads and plug from the old motor as well as the pinion(easily pried off and pushed on new). Like stated before just dremel off one side of the shaft. I do not run digital so no suppression cap for me. Or you can just gut everything and put in the new piranha with the leads it comes with to a new guide(slotting plus) and that works even better. Really makes these car run great! Hope that helps!

            I did a comparison 1/32 motor test that may help you. Even though they were put in 1/24 cars they were 1/32 motors with exception of the RMS motor which is 1/24. I compared both Piranha motors and the Professor Motor Fox 10 motor. Take a gander and see if the info might help. The 1/24 cars are at least twice the weight so any of the motors in a 1/32 car they should all scream. Good reading anyway.

              Thank You I just printed the info and I will read it and compare.

            Any FC-130 can will fit. Carrera rates the E200 as a 20K motor, most of mine turn around 18K. Money wise you can't beat the Piranha at around 8 bucks. At 21.5k they will handle the heavy Carrera cars just fine. The NSR motors while more expensive have the smoothest power band I've come across and make the cars very drivable.

                I do mesh my gears together with a hot blow dryer you can use a heat fun BE CAREFUL. That makes a different

                  If you have had a Carrera motor fail possibly the motor itself is OK. Older Carrera motors have RFI filters that consist of capacitors and chokes (inductors). The chokes are wired in series with the motor and are known to fail, when that happens the motor gets no power. Most people just hotwire around the chokes to get the motor running again.

                    Sounds like something worth looking out for. In my case the commutator had fallen to pieces inside the motor.
