I see that you can get fairly complete specs for the motors. The ones that I checked would probably be too powerful to use with cars that did not have traction magnets, even at 10 volts. In most cases you would have to reduce the track voltage or use a controller with a choke feature, but the motors are cheap enough to give them a try. If you find motors that are satisfactory you probably should order more of them as soon as possible. Fire sale motors are not likely to be available for very long.
sorry, yes brakes and breaks, sir!
if with wired brakes the efficiency of the artin brakes is very weak.
i´ve got some Artin cars, which i really like!
Also they are very good to be worked on, can lowered to a good ground clearance and run really well! I like Artins.
Right. Brake power depends on how many turns of wire on each stator.
I found that it took a bit of experimenting to get it 'close to correct' when replacing motors with the small scales, because with electron power it's always a compromise, gain something here, loose something over there.
It was much easier with 1/24 as we wound our own motors according to the track, gear ratio and voltage. Not so easy with 'off the shelve'.
