Slot Italia Motors
 

Slot Italia makes some of the finest high-performance after-market slot car motors currently available for 1:32 scale slot cars. They offer a line of motors for most brands of slot cars including the standard Mabuchi "S" can type used by Scalextric and FLY along with "boxer" style motors for the Ninco line of 1:32 scale slot cars.

 

Slot Italia motors are a direct replacement for most of the popular lines of 1:32 scale slot cars. Slot Italia motors are available in "Endbell" and "Can" configurations for the various chassis types currently being manufactured.

The "Can" and "Endbell" configurations simply refer to the end of the motor that the pinion gear is mounted on. The drawing below illustrates "Can" and "Endbell" pinion gear locations.

 
  Motor/Pinion Configurations
 

Slot Italia motors can be used in both in-line and sidewinder chassis configurations. Motors come with either 9 tooth pinions for inline applications or 11 tooth pinions for sidewinder chassis. A plain motor without a pinion is also available for special applications.

 

The table below illustrates the basic motor configurations used for most of the popular brands of RTR slot cars currently available. Double-check your car's particular chassis though to make sure you're ordering the correct motor.

Slot Italia motors have large dual-hole cooling vents and flexible silicone lead wires with brass pick-up flag eyelets. Their "Heat Sink" technology allows the entire metal motor housing to be used to reduce heat build-up and keep the motor running cool in long endurance racing events. A dynamically balanced, epoxy-resin coated motor armature stack, high-temperature motor windings and large diameter commutator make this one of the best replacement motors currently available.

The motor armature shaft protrudes from both ends of the motor, allowing them to be mounted in any 1:32 scale slot car chassis that uses a Mabuchi "S" can motor.
