4 Wheels & Motor Upgrade Kit SKU: 22055
4 Wheels & Motor Upgrade Kit
This surplus wheel set comes with one motor, two sets of wheels (two standard, two wide plastic studded tires and plastic hubs) and four guide rollers.
This is technically a “Hypersonic Tune-Up Parts Set” that, according to the almighty packaging, will “Give SUPER-SPEED and STYLE to your HYPER CARS and RACING SETS.” These sets come in a random pick of red, yellow, blue, green, or black wheels.
The motor itself is based on the popular FF-130 form-factor, which is also the same size used in our GM2/3/8/9 gear motors, and is also a match for our RM2 (a similarly high-power motor). In fact, you can swap the motor in this kit with any of the motors in the above-listed gearmotors for some serious performance upgrades. Be warned: As good as they are, this sort of upgrade totally and utterly will be abusing the gearbox. Expect a related decrease in mechanical lifetime!
Specifications: Check out our tested stats for the included “SUPER HYPER MOTOR” (we’re lucky they didn’t use any more awesome adjectives – it would have made an overload of incredibleness):
- Current @ 1.5V: 900mA
- Current @ 3.0V: 2.8A
- Current @ 5.0V: 5+A (don’t try this at home, kids. It’s a good way to fry a motor)
- RPM @ 1.5 V: 13,200
- RPM @ 3.0V: 24,500
- RPM @ 5.0V: Lots
We highly suggest lubricating this motor with some light oil before use.
You might also like to know that this set is “compatible with hypersonic bullet cars and other 1/32 scale vehicles”. We’re not sure if anyone will actually find that handy or not, but there you go. Something you will find mind-blowing, though… The packaging further enlightens us “SUPER-SPEED MOTOR 344M.P.H TO SCALE”. Awesome.
