Le Mans motor collection.

Post by 1300GT »

Here's a couple of pictures of my Le Mans collection to date. I thought they should have a good home. Enjoy, Chris.

Very nice collection you have there. I've started to collect kyosho motors here as well, only have a few but hopefully it will grow so I can do something like that too.

Regards

Rob

Nice collection, you must have some cool vintage RCs. Got any pictures of those?

Thanks for the kind words you blokes. Unfortunately Fakiee, I don't have any of my old cars. No photos either. I own four buggies now, all bought in the last three years. I've attached another photo of my only other Le Mans motor. It's a 480T can, 480 Gold endbell (painted green) and a Parma 19x2 armature. It's bolted in my Tomahawk and still needs to be wired up. Enjoy, Chris.

I see your collection lacks the SPA 240WS, I see a nice home for it there beside the SPA 480WT. ;) To my knowledge, it's the fastest-spinning Le Mans motor from that time. It just so happens I rebuilt one of those, it's in near-mint condition. If you're interested in adding it to your collection, send me a PM and when you've been granted access to the B/S/T section, we can discuss it further.

Thanks for the offer Coelacanth, but I snagged a 240WS just before you posted.

Great collection you have there. :mrgreen:

My first non-silver can was a Le Mans 600E. Not sure if it really made my Hunter any faster. It certainly didn't stop the gears from stripping. :roll:

Then I cut the back end off the Hunter and mounted up a Hotshot rear end with twin shocks and a 240T. It was awsome fast. I wish I still had it.

I bought a Mid SE new which came witha 240ST which was the best car/motor combo I have ever had out of the box. :D

What was the winds on these motors?

Cheers,

Michael.

Thanks Lowgear and Tagger. As far as I know Tagger, the 240ST is a 22 turn single wind motor. I've owned two of them. Ones in my collection and the other used to power my Tamiya M01 Mini back in '95. Updated photo time.
