This 8-speed motor gearbox from Tamiya comes with a smaller 030 form factor brushed DC hobby motor. It drives a single gear train and can be built up at one of eight gear ratio options: 7.5:1, 9.5:1, 15.7:1, 19.9:1, 32.9:1, 41.8:1, 79.1:1, 87.8:1. The output shaft has two possible configurations (each gear ratio corresponds to one of the two).
All the parts and instructions needed to assemble the gearbox are in the box, including the motor, screws, lubricant and a small allen wrench. The motor runs happily between 1.5V and 4.5V so, like the other Tamiya gearboxes, is a good match for any common low voltage DC motor driver.
The compact size of this gearbox makes it ideal for installation into 1/35 scale tank models as well as some of the larger 1/48 scale tank models. The mini motor is highly efficient and produces very little noise, making it great for applications such as R/C models for Educational Construction projects. Eight gear ratios (7.5:1, 9.5:1, 15.7:1, 19.9:1, 32.9:1, 41.8:1, 79.0:1, 87.8:1) can be chosen for assembly. The gearbox case, gears, and crank are made from durable plastic material while the 3mm hex output shaft is made from metal. Furthermore, the gearbox case is transparent to enable viewing of internal mechanisms. Dimensions: (Width) 20mm, (Height) 18mm, (Length) 50mm
