I have one or two semi-finished club type slot chassis and now need motors pref 16D by Mabuchi or Mura.
Does anyone here work on sixties motors ie rewinds and balancing and have surplus to their needs?
Or does any dealer produce motors to a higher spec?
Even better any spare motors from the old days..i love the history!
I used to have a real good guy in New York who could build anything but he has gone R/C !
good price paid for nice motors, ken please message me or if general info for good of forum please post..



NY motor tuned..being built up with green can Mura (NOS) balancing, gold dust, can ball-race etc etc.

Ta Don...I will study your reply well, as I can see it's full of good advice....well spotted that is my retro MURA "green" can motor from NY lightened a touch in the can?..I hope it is "scary" as it is a drag motor...ken
ps I see nice motors on ebay sometimes going for £30.....but a dead engine if it has been used will always be possibly one that "smoked" back in the day and was thrown in the parts box??

Yes Don...John must be a very skilled perfectionist to create these gems...I wonder if he takes on customer builds and what price these works of electrical art?
They look just what I need a retro "proper" slot motor!

Well my "HOT" rewound, balanced and tuned MURA C can motor has arrived from the states, it really looks superb and I will post a pic on Friday....it really is a work of art.
I still need mounting screws, 8T pinion etc but the Paxton is coming together well ...ken

Most of the info is on the SLOTBLOG FORUM Arm winding thread pages 163-4....but it is a #27S with a Bugenis com and a drill blank shaft all superbly assembled and breathed on by John Havlicek of course!
And as for too nice to cover up?.....well has anyone tried a paint job with cutaway sections in the clear shell or perhaps a full size scale engine cover ?
