  • specs on stock carrera motors??

    Anyone know the specs on these motors?
    I'd like something just a little faster for when I make my own chassis since I'm not running 18 volts.

    Thank you

    Professor Motor sells a tuning motor for Carrera 1/24th scale cars, it is rated at 30K RPMs. Professor Motor advises that this motor will be too powerful at 18 volts, so you would need to be able to turn the voltage down closer to 12 volts. Carrera also has a tuning motor for their cars, LEB Hobbies carries those. Both the Carrera standard and tuning motors seem to be rated at 18K RPMs, so I am not certain if the tuning motor is actually more powerful.

      The motor that Leb hobbies has listed as a tuning motor is not the higher performance tuning motor that Carrera used to make. It is a standard 18k motor with a 12t pinion instead of the stock 10t. That pinion requires a 48t spur gear. The tuning motor they used to make is 24k and no longer available. I picked up a couple on ebay a few years ago, and have seen only one listed since then.

      Agreed on the RMS motors, especially being a direct fit/replacement. We run them at 10v on a 70’ wood track, and they are perfect. At 12v they got a little out of hand. Tried the Fox motors as well, about the same performance as the RMS motors.

        I humbly suggest you try the RMS motor; it's available from Professor Motor like Rich said, also available from a few other retailers. The RMS motor is a direct drop in for you so NO modifications necessary so you can always switch back to the OEM motor. And Dave's review of motors for Carrera D124 cars included an older version of the RMS motor, not the current version which has a little more torque than the motor he tested.

          Whichever RMS motor you have they are BEASTS.

                RMS motors it is. Just need to sort things out with chassis and then pick up a couple.

                  Remember that with the RMS motor you will have to turn down the voltage. The table in post #6 indicates that the Carrera tuning motor has more power than the standard motor. The Piranha 25K ball bearing motor has neodymium magnets which would increase the magnetic downforce of a car.

                    Be sure you get one with the pinion and motor wiring already installed.
