I have a TSR 1/24 scale chassis and I don't know the specs of the motor that came with it. It looks like the motors on the TSR website but I can't find the info there either.

I am lacking brakes and had thought it maybe a low torque motor?

I have fairly short gearing so would doubt it would be the overall ratio - that is why I am interested in the torque figure of the motor - before I think about replacing it.

Thanks

Jim

I think that's the T2415 motor correct? Thats the 43K RPM motor (advertised). Not sure what you mean by no brakes?

Jim,

Not every motor maker publishes torque specs; in fact, most don't.

This list may help:

Since the list is alphabetical, you'll have to scroll down a bit for the TSRF/TSR motor specs.

Thanks.

Jacob, I'm referring to the motor had poor brakes in that it doesn't slow the car down very well.

James,

What are you using for a controller? The reason I ask is that sometimes the type of controller can make a huge difference on brakes.

It is a homemade adjustable thing - it has diode adjustment on the brakes.

It was designed primarily for 1/32 hardbody racing, but I have used it successfully with 1/32 brass cars with Super Wasp motors.

It's just the TSR that seems to lack any brakes!

I want to add some lead to it but that will just make it not want to slow down even more!

You may have a dud motor... it can happen.

In defence of TSR I didn't buy the chassis new, so I don't know the history of the use that the motor has had.

I had a go with the car last night and it is definitely losing power now too, so maybe the motor is on its way out!

What kind of track is this used on? Depending on it, I can make some recommendations. These are primarily designed to run on Carrera plastic track with mild magnet traction, with plastic kit bodies. There are two motors available.

A reasonably-sized gloss track. No spray glue. Car batteries and a charger.

I'm not sure which motor I have to be honest!

And I am using a plastic kit body ~(quite heavy).

I suggest a TSR D3 motor that will have the torque to carry a very heavy body as well as supplying decent brakes.
