Tamiya R/C Motors

"Select the proper motor for your needs. The characteristics of the 380s motor are very suitable for getting started in learning to drive r/c cars. They provide good response and have a longer running time on each charge. The 540S motor is the one most seen on Tamiya R/C electric powered cars." - Tamiya

"They are very powerful and though the running time is not as long as the 380, they provide more excitement in racing. The black motor has a short running time; however, its higher RPM makes it suitable for the competition sprint circuits. Treat them with respect and they will last a long time."

  1. Using excessive voltage will burn out the windings and ruin the motor.
  2. Do not overload them by using higher voltages.
  3. Tamiya R/C motors are designed for 6 -  7.2 volts only.
  4. Do not alter or modify these motors as they will burn out more easily.
  5. An overheated motor provides less power and requires more current flow and is permanently damaged, requiring replacement.
