SCX Motor Reference Guide

The first number, for example '4' stands for the armature length and also refers to where the pinion gear is mounted. So a motor with a '4' is a 50mm shaft with a 9-tooth pinion gear mounted on the rear of the armature.

The next number refers to if the motor has been design for a pod or mounting directly into the chassis. '1' means the motor is made for mounting directly into the chassis, while '2' means the motor is to be used with a motor pod. If there is no second number then the motor uses wires instead of the standard metal legs to make contact with the guide.

The letter or lack of a letter after the numbers refers to the motors rpm.

  • Motors with an 'A' or no letter at the end are rated at 16400 rpm
  • RX-41,RX-42 Motors with a 'B' are rated at 18000 rpm
  • RX-41B,RX-42B Motors with a 'C' are rated at 19000 rpm
  • Motors with a 'D' are rated at 19000 rpm. including Pro motors
  • Motors with a 'E' are rated at 22000 rpm
  • Motors with a 'F' are rated at 25000 rpm
  • Motors with a 'G' are rated at 21000 rpm
  • Motors with a 'H' are rated at 25000rpm.

So an RX-41 is a 50mm shaft with a rear 9 tooth pinion gear made for a non motor pod chassis rated at 16400rpm and a RX-42B is a 50mm shaft with a rear 9 tooth pinion gear made for a motor pod chassis rated at 18000rpm.
