MOTOR CHOICES

As a general rule, the larger the motor diameter and – in particular – the longer the motor barrel, the lower the revs and the higher the torque (pulling power). Larger 14-series motors, coupled to a medium-ratio gearbox, will give you a reasonable top speed combined with super-smooth, low-speed performance and good haulage capabilities.

For smaller engines, space limitations may dictate a smaller motor, such as the 10 or 12-series Mashimas. Compared with the 14-series these are less powerful and faster-revving, but excellent slow running can still be achieved using one of our compact, high-ratio gearboxes and these combinations are surprisingly powerful.

Our gearboxes will accept all our motor types shown, unless stated otherwise.

All motors are 12 volts D.C.
