I've got a Revell Opel Ascona which has a Mabuchi can sized motor with drive from the can end, it originally had a 25K motor in it which was all top end power, no brakes and no torque, I've replaced this with a ScaleAuto 19,000 rpm motor which is better but still lacks torque, what motor would be best for torque, the car is used on a stage consisting of short straights and sharp corners, SCX and Ninco motors work very well on it but will not fit in the Ascona without a fair bit of work.

Revell motors are rarely affected that much by changing gears, but they can work quite well when you remove the drag effect of the chassis magnet. But even then, they have poor brakes and poor torque even under all ratios.

What they do respond to a little bit is your controller as they become better motors when using a 15 or 25ohm controller. More ohms than that are they are not at their best. Same with Scaleauto. Same with SlotIt. Same with NSR. Same with Carrera.

And that's what you need to consider if you are trying motors with more power-sucking draw; which would be all the above as they tend to dominate NC1-style can-end drive motor distribution.
