Tamiya Modified Motor History Part 2

Mid-1980s: Tamiya and motor-wave decomposition

Now, after several years, I was not very far away from the RC is detail, as might be expected, BLACK MOTOR specifications about the escalation of the year obsessed with 1 / 12 in the visitor’s Racing also reached that limit the height of the December 1984 finally, MABUCHI and joint development of the race only 8 minutes of high-efficiency “RX-540SD TECHNIPOWER” (sp.225 the 4500 yen) will be released. Both support shaft bearing, complete decomposition formula can be adjusted in advance of the first model. Next March 1985, the number of characteristics that turn a mild “RX-540SD TECHNITUNED” (sp.230 the 4500 yen) will also be released. This is the epidemic showed signs of the buggy, especially WD 2 machines in mind to use as a motor was released. The TECHNIPOWER TECHNITUNED and is the same type as MABUCHI, Tamiya and differ only in the part number so suspicious. Turn catalog number is not listed, but after some “TECHNIGOLD” T 21 single winding, and that the 21 TECHNIPOWER T, T TECHNITUNED at 23 degrees it was in (Single Roll it is verified). Diameter of the wire, but the appearance is about 0.70 mm.
But that time is still of RC motor parts, I like the versatility of most of the parts are no longer exists. Each manufacturer has been common in the procurement of parts I, and the rotor magnet around parts of the bearing, which was not only much. Bell and motor end, brush, brush spring, and each maker has been designed to own fancy. Naturally the high cost of production, 20 years from now at around 5,000 yen before, it is now reduced to a value of 10,000 yen to 15,000 yen worth of goods at the time the user is not purchased. . Then I, like jewelry.

Indeed, Bell and end around the middle of the magnet in part to build up long-bis motors, it is hard to note a mechanical mechanism, and is now fond memories. Now, any manufacturer the “visible parts” only to change the color and design of the fine parts of the generic parts are just a combination of a lot. And the price is pretty cheap now not to complain, but also the split-high-end model is also completely gone, press a piece of them, “boring” I think the only writer?

Late 1980s: motor age

Times have changed, the world is 1 / 12 Racing ON ROAD center is out of the buggy whip to start selling. “The four-wheel drive mini” boom coupled eginning. Era, the so-called “bubble economy” in the middle. In the middle to late 1980s, after the roof of the city’s department stores buggies there is a TV, “RC Tamiya Car Grand Prix” and other TV programs are aired, leading to a boom. There was an atrium of a building in Shinjuku NS (vaulted Square) to create special courses held and magazines for children and RC model is the tie-in TV advertising CM which was, I tell, who believe that now? But there are certainly times that. Definitely a “radio-controlled era” and also likely to put the money to use as a luxury product planning.

Tamiya in March 1988 “AVANTE” machine TRF release form (avex four years ago from the TRF), this year’s eighth JMRCA A in Japan and to enter into serious action activities Works This also started on time (TRF then “DYNASTORM” released after age 93 with a lull, but since 1996, 1 / 8 GP BMT fought race in the series and TRF404-414 development activities you know is resumed.)
The unprecedented four-wheel drive mini-boom, Power is expected to intensify competition. However, the battery capacity is still “1200 mAh” remain. SC cell types (General Standard cell) only. Early 80s qualifying time 45 seconds (!) Was battling JMRCA1/12 nightmare Racing is competitive with power came again. Blindly raise the motor power and runtime only only three minutes away from making a dilemma.

This approach quickly resolve for a period of time as the mid-1980s, has spotlighted the “V 7 cell pack 8.4” battery. Tamiya, too, “released 10 Planning Tamiya RC car,” Kraft’s moon buggy by Yura design, “BIG WIG (Item 58057, 25,800 yen),” released in July 1986, while “V 8.4 TAMIYA NI CD Power Gold (55025,6400 Item yen) “to release them. In addition, the motor is also included with the new V 8.4 as compliant HIGH POWER MOTOR “RX-540VZ TECHNIGOLD (sp.290, 5,000 yen)” to develop. The following year, in August 1986 from spare parts sold separately as also started. The rotor of TECHNIGOLD is 21-turn, 0.8-mm single.

Been released so far made a series of MABUCHI motor is essentially all of the parts are compatible. The final model, and 8.4-V battery “TECHNIGOLD” exchange theory, “TECHNIPOWER / TECHNITUNDED performance of brush” notices have been, and earlier TECHNIGOLD Two models of the brush is different materials (for TECHNIGOLD Perhaps it is more soft), the hardware is compatible with the same shape. Rotor, the wire diameter and the number is of course different from the wound, but was diverted because of the same size. This is around, but I also make custom MABUCHI model.

While all of this was going on, in 1987, Japan’s F-1GP back from Tamiya according to the “ROAD WIZARD” T-99 chassis and the new Lotus dipped Williams FW11B body kit released. F1 was boiling of a sudden boom.

R DYNATECH 01 F-1 model at the time, released at the end of the seventies, “Tyrell P34” “JS9 Ligier” to the first and second generation of F1 chassis compared to the lighter side, too, in terms of driving performance lot nicer, and even beginners Power 540 is a bit much uncontrollable, fast enough to have fun. Still, more power and high-speed has been increasing demand from users, which came out in response to that, “DYNATECH 01 R (op.1, 5,500 yen).” This is also the custom of MABUCHI goods in the name of the company MABUCHI “RX-540VS” now.

Oh, op.1? Yeah, the memorable “HOP UP OPTION” This is the first issue of Motor me know. Opt hop’s history is also up, with a motor, you know?

By the way, “DYNATECH 01 R,” rotor “configuration option” is the first thing that is striking out. 01 R DYNATECH standard diameter of 0.90 mm T-19 was a single roll of the options as 1.00 T 17 mm diameter are provided by a single winding.
Until then, the Member Works (TRF) and JMRCA participants to support the rotor at the scene bespoke specifications to be supplied as was the case, but such cases are generally not marketed. These “The race unless” special motor distribution or distributed at the scene, the enthusiasm, excitement and buggy boom, rather than now become more radical as it was (and already history back to late 1970s Works only “Special Motor Japan” does not exist were it). The RX-540 series, the name was different, “TECHNIPOWER” “TECHNITUNED”, the rotor is incompatible because this is essentially to opt around super rotor was like setting But from the beginning, as the opt out had not.

This time, the batteries finally wave of technology innovation. Generic years has been used for long-SC type of cell was released after 10 years after finally abandoned by the new large-capacity cell SCE appeared in 1700. Tamiya, “EX 1700,” released in November 1987 as being (Item55038, 6,000 yen).

However, the SCE has repeatedly recharge cell weak and discharge characteristics as a second half loaf, which becomes not necessarily suitable for RC. Therefore, large current discharge voltage can be sustainable in the end “type SCR” has been developed, “SCR 1400” (Item55051, 4,400 yen) as. 1990. As you know from the convention space, capacity at the expense of the discharge voltage drop suppress cell structure shook her direction in design. However, the actual usable space travel at the last minute pile-up celebrity, SCE 1700 and changed so much.

On that occasion, NI CAD BATTERY market, Matsushita Sanyo batteries to challenge the monopoly to begin, RC racing, “Panasonic” is gradually began attracting attention. “1400SCR” an end to this dispute, were sanyo Weapon is killer. Consequently, “SCE 1700” and “1400 SCR” appearance brought the NI CAD BATTERY “competitive capacity / characteristics competition” is the beginning of a new battle, every two years since “SCR 1700” “1700SCRC” “2000RC (Tamiya Pack is rejected), “” RC 2400 “” 3000MH “such as how new products come out,1990s and the development of competition will not plunge.

02 H DYNATECH Now, these large-capacity battery to the full benefits are received, after all motor. After all, turn to reduce the number of more powerful runtime is not able to maintain, over the years more and more extreme motor came out. It symbolized an era of monumental model, in November 1989 have been released as HOP UP OPTION “DYNATECH 02 H (op.44, 6,000 yen).” This is after, “2 WD SUPER ASTUTE (August 1991, Item 58097)” and “Evolution TOP FORCE (released in June 1992, Item 58107,3 18,000 yen)”

“DYNATECH 02 H” is more than 1400 large-capacity battery is premised on the use of the cobalt-containing rare earth magnet at the time of the highest level of luxury to be adopted, 0.65mm diameter of the rotor winding 13 Double T, still fully accepted in specifications emerged. What is 0.70 mm diameter wire OPTION ROTOR 10 Double-T! NI CD BATTERY was the highest level for the specs, the motor including “unlimited rotor (outside articles are OK!)” Fought over the rules of Tamiya GP Gr.A Touring Car class in the summer to become the battery Connector has dissolved! It is also sometimes seen as an accident. In those days, the PL (product liability law) was not because of the accident should be the responsibility of users, manufacturers and the percentage of your stance on this hot carefree motors could release it. Could nostalgic era of peace.
DYNATECH spare brush DYNATECH 02 H 02 H 02 H-opt DYNATECH The motor rotor is a strong sense of its own off-road driving to the end of Bell & Design adopted thanks to the brush, the brush is how 1,000 yen spare! On the enormously expensive goods. Akira Hiroshi just came at the end of the era of “Battleship Yamato” state. MOTAKAN, still making luxurious three-piece structure. Consequently, the last three as TAMIYA MOTOR piece motor structure. This excessive cost can go up to the user with no Haz, buggy boom will soon decline. Separately DYNATECH Tamiya and H-02 is not due. . .

“DYNATECH 02 H” Another particularly notable is the first motor Tamiya, except MABUCHI MODIFIED provided by the manufacturer of the motor. Johnson’s company in Hong Kong manufacturers. Johnson, speaking of the now-compatible 540 so-called “motor Johnson” will be known in the 1980s for 540 types of buggy boom race is not used because it is not, and then it is either “DYNATECH 02 H” Johnson, the company discovered by that many people?

But Johnson also is a world-MABUCHI after leading maker of small motors, and 540 types of motors since stabilized supply to the secondary source (alternate source) has been trading as it is you know below. “Johnson motor” will be included with the kit to become the first place? NOKI did, “Blackfoot” Big tire system as a kit included with the motor, 540 S want is a bit more powerful motor for the “special motor “ostensibly in the game like it was the beginning.

By the way, this is like a high-end motor it will continue year after year, the basic specifications of the 540 motor was basically the same, the gap between the power on the other hand is open. 80s line-up kits at the end of that time, especially at the time buggy motor to mainstream it, which include 540 for the introductory model, the motor system DYNATECH include a net after two minutes in extreme racing model been. However, many users to buy a car Tamiya introductory who just bought a net race model, the spare hand it is a high-performance, and quite a few cases. A little bit, meek performance in the 540 from the high-power motor MODIFIED want has been.
Meet these demands is born, “SPORT TUNED RS-540” (op.68, ¥ 1500, October 1990). This kit is included with the motor as “AVANTE 2001” (Item58085, released in June 1990, 26,800 yen) first appeared, followed by the first bullet C Series car chassis “Mercedes-Benz C11” (Item58088, released in November 1990, 13,000 yen) was also adopted. Original “AVANTE” “TECHNIGOLD” in the price of equipment three 2001. Also, “Group C” series is a gross weight of 1,200 g F1 model and heavier than the 540 offers power performance is somewhat dissatisfied. “SPORT TUNED” Tamiya assortment of motor MODIFIED indispensable product has been a long seller. Probably already MODIFIED Tamiya’s largest motor has been a bestseller in it. Life is short brush, Darre Magnet is easy to heat, and a lot of criticism might also say, a few decades before 5000 1500 yen available now, the impact is substantial, it’s big.

It is superfluous, “SPORT TUNED” is a diameter of 0.80 mm T-23 single winding. DYNATECH 19T just 0.90 mm of a single roll of 01 and R 540 S / SH 0.65mm 27T single roll of the intermediate and specifications. This, “a reasonable person in a high-performance primer” which was obtained or how barnacle to the specification later this basis, Japan’s distinctive “T stock 23” was born in JMRCA Touring Car class sports and other provisions also been adopted. As a result theory is just, lasting masterpiece TAMIYA MOTOR history, and they would say.
