    Exclamation Motor help!!!!

    So i will be receiving my slash in the mail sometime this week! I grandpa gave a electric motor that he found in an old house. I thinks its a tamiya ej (electric johnson). It looks like a 540 type motor and i attached some solderless motor leads. The motor looks brand new i polished it and oiled the bearings. It does not have capacitors but does it need capacitors or not? And will this motor work in my slash? [IMG][IMG]C:\Documents and Settings\Josh\My Documents\My Pictures\Motor[/IMG][/IMG]

    You can't link a picture from your harddrive. You will have to upload it to a website like www.photobucket.com or something similar.

    If it's the silver Tamiya Johnson motor it will be a 27turn motor. These are common motors but unfortunatily the performance from them is very poor. I would keep it as a back up, but the stock Slash motor will be faster top speed and with acceleration.

    When you lose radio control at top speed, RUN!
