All of my Revolutions were lucky scores from eBay.
Yeah, Iv looked and looked.. for quite a while. Every once in a while I will find a used one all marked up... but NIP or 100% unused are pretty hard to find.

I know,they're few and far between.
It took me a long time to collect the ones I have.Years.
Just be persistent,man.
Try different search words,like 'Vintage Losi', Losi Revolution','Vintage RC Motor' etc.
You'll get lucky,eventually. :wink:

Thanks for the tips... I also updated my wanted thread as well to include the yellow labeled motor.

You don´t have to look out very long http://www.ebay.com/itm/Losi-Revolution ... 4161044868
It is not an early Revolution motor but at least one with the same yellow label. Also not new but I haven´t seen a new one in years.

I´m looking for Checkpoint motors and Delta or Tekin motors and it´s the same problem as with the Revolution motors. The difference just is I have Revolutions from back in the days but none of the other ones.

Yeah I found that one the day it was posted... there is another one out there in better shape from the UK... but for a shelf queen that is 100% unused/mint, it doesn't qualify ;) Thanks though, let me know if you stumble upon a new one.

This is a stock motor with different colour scheme not a Revolution modified. But seems looking quite good.
But I have to say I never saw any new Revolution modified motors and just a very small number of used ones.

The ones I have all were used ... by myself.

Uhhh...Yeah?
A Revolution's a Revolution,man,stock or modified.
I dig them all.
Stock Revolutions look great in cars like the Junior 2 and Junior T,too.
Fits in well with the target market of those cars,people just getting into RC and not wanting a freakin' 8x2 modified motor.

This is super sweet-A Daytona Oval.
The one I have is Trinity based,with a silver label,they can't have made many of those suckers.
So sweet! :D

Just got one of these that came with a jrx t that I just got. I'm thinking about selling the whole thing off though. My motor looks a little beat but in good shape. I am going to test the motor and the novak t-4 that came with it out in my Rus'buggy this weekend. I like the old novak motor connector though it looks like it can handle a pretty good load. But there maybe a reason you don't really see them around.

Wow,been a long time since I've seen a Novak connector like that one,man!
I have a good amount of vintage ESCs and they sure built 'em right,back then.
Still go like troopers.

I FINALLY got an MTM Revolution motor! :D
The label isn't perfect,but I'm going to work on it,I'm just happy to have one.
It looks like the can may have been black-anyone know for sure?

Saw a Jr's Choice motor sell for US$90 on eBay a while back...Silly stuff. :roll:

I have a JR's Choice plus an earlier mod motor too. Both are bolted into my JRX2 and JRX PRO runners.

Can't beat these for Koolness factor IMO.

Great thread BTW.

Cheers,Jason :wink:

I got my MTM motor restored to pretty acceptable condition and slotted it into my new built LXT....Must give it a dust,sometime. :roll:
I have a few spare yellow Revolutions,now! :shock:
