A Zoid and Stuff

In: 2000s Misc Releases > Rebirth Century

TS (Thruster System) Motor

This motor is one of new developments from the Rebirth Century line. It consists of a reworked windup-sized gearbox and an external battery pack. Official releases with this motor are Barigator TS, Tiga Godos, and the super-rare Merda TS (a “Guylos” colored limited).

SO, I wanted to see how many Zoids could use this motor, without any darthing (or visible darthing, in the case of Snipe Master).

    Nuts, Pteras’s motor has a special part on it for the wing movement, so I couldn’t do the TS motor

    @Ash: I forgot the specific seller, but I got this guy on ebay. Hobby Link Japan and Toy-Wave should still have them, too.

    @Xehn: Dang, I don’t have a Revvy anymore. The battery pack might be too long to fit on the back peg, anyway…

    Shadowfox? That’s a windup, isn’t it?

    @Stompy: I think that one had the larger size windup motor… and I don’t have one anymore :(

    Shadow Fox does indeed have the larger size motor.

    Spinosapper?

    I gave it a shot with Revvy. It does work if you find somewhere to stick the battery pack, like using one of the peg-to-peg adapters that hold it onto the Godos to put it on the tail.

  12. then RCM said:

    @Xehn: that’s the #2 problem I have… trying to find a place for the battery pack (#1 is trying not to pinch the wires)

    @Rykke: Spinosapper worked! Pics to come…

    This is an interesting experiment. Does the motor make them run faster than they normally would with a wind-up motor or do they run at about their normal speed?

  14. then RCM said:

    @Zoidstar: the motor-enhanced speeds seem to range between “slightly faster” and “bat out of hell”, depending on the Zoid. Merda’s the fastest, just like with the windup motor.

    i see you have tried it on a Guysak how well did it work?

  16. then RCM said:

    @Lucian: It worked great!

    Wow, this was pretty informative! Thanks for posting all these!

    so to make this clear, barigator ts (rebirth century) automatically has the ts motor right?

    March 5th, 2010 at 8:42 am | #

  19. then RCM said:

    @mammoth: Yep, the rebirth version (ts) has the special motor. I think Toy-Wave still has em for cheap too!
