Rush 36k Motor
Mainline Hobbies (Philadelphia, PA, USA) has developed the Rush 36k motor for magnet racers, and for no-mag racers who need high revs and good torque. This is an FC-130 configured motor, in a plain steel case, that revs to 36,000 RPM at 12 volts. Torque is 218 gcm/12v. A non-contact tachometer verified the RPM, and a lever-action torque tester verified the torque; both are very close to the advertised figures. For those concerned with such things, a ride on the Magnet Marshal showed no magnetic downforce. The shaft is long on both ends, for universal fit in any chassis using this style of motor. Price is $12.99.
