It says my first motor, a 600E was a 30 turn. No wonder it didn't seem any faster than my mabuchi 540. :lol:

The 240T being a 16 turn makes a bit of sense. It was a huge improvement.

Cheers,

Michael.

Very cool! I could not remember which Kyosho LeMans I owned, only remember that it was anodised red.. Now I see it was a 240S.

Man did I anger my parents over this motor lol. I had saved up my allowance and kept bugging my dad to order it for me from tower. He kept ignoring me. So I picked up the phone called tower and gave them his credit card. Later I went down stairs and handed him the money. He said what's this, I told him what I had done...

Lets just say I was grounded for a long time... Lol

Wow nice collection, so which one are you missing?

I have 8 new Kyosho motors at the moment, which includes one SPA240 I wasn't sure how many there are all up before I tried to collect them all

Very nice 'treasure chest' you have there. I'm still hunting for a red 240S. Oh well.

Thanks fellas. Just missing a 360E. They only came in the Kyosho Turbo Scorpion. So it's like trying to find rocking horse poo. I wanted to collect the early Le Mans with the alloy faceplates and the two Spa motors. There's more to collect but I'll have to start another briefcase treasure chest.

It's funny how something so simple tends to take over. I started looking for only these early motors but now all the LeMans motors tend to catch my eye.
I just scored 2 very nice nib LeMans Super Pro motors. The Hi-Speed and Hi-Torque competition motors. Very nice high end looking pieces. We're these the last of the LeMans series?

Yep, you're dead right Jason. Start out thinking "just those ones" and it snowballs from there. I'm pretty sure the Super pro series were the last of the Le mans motors.

Very nice collection!!! Looks like a candy store display.

Can someone confirm whether Kyosho did or did not made brushless motors with the Le Mans lettering/sticker design?

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.
Man, That looks spectacular! Currently, I have a LeMan's 360ST, but to match the color scheme of my Tomahawk, I am looking for a 480T. I like the way it looks on the Tomahawk too. Great collection you have, thank you for sharing! :D

Where on earth does one get a Le Mans sampler box from?

Thanks fellas,
I saved that Le Mans collection picture onto a disk some time ago Integra.

Sampler box comes from the huge Whitmans chocolate sampler boxes you sometimes see in Woolworths.
I thought my collection was just like one, a good selection of varieties. :mrgreen:
