Bill, I hear ya, I spent years in HO myself!


Yes, I believe Fate means 16D-style endbells, which is the way all motors for slot use should be built IMO.

To be honest.... my idea of spares now is just to have complete spare motors... if only they'd put proper endbells on these things! And they could.... they've even been doing it in HO for years!
Frankly, the current use of disposable motors is disappointing.
And before someone mentions cost... it would add very, very little to the cost of a car - I'd gladly pay the extra - and it would save plenty in the long run!

QUOTE Yeah, it's kind of overkill for these disposables

It's that exact "disposable" nature that irks me! It pervades every aspect of our society, but it REALLY bugs me that slot motors have followed suit. Yes, I know that we are at the mercy of the motor makers (Mabuchi, et al), but until I came back to 1/32 recently, every motor I've raced since the 60's was rebuildable. Progress? I think not!
