FIRST LOOK: Yokomo DX1 Type R Motor (D1 Comparisons)

Super-G finally got their hands on the first batch of DX-1 Series Motors from Yokomo. The Type-R has been shipped out, but the Type-T is still a few weeks away.

A little DX1 history: TYPE-R (HIGH RPM) and TYPE-T (HIGH TORQUE). One should feature more torque, and one has a smoother rev.

We decided to compare the D1 Spec versus the new DX1. Both are 10.5T. So here we go:

The package is the same, they both come with the same sensor cable.

Cosmetically, they’re very similar, the DX1 seems to be more “exposed”. This will most likely benefit cooling properties.

Seems like the both the front and the back of the motor looks almost identical to its old counterparts.

Looking at the etching on the shaft, looks like the old and new share the same specs?

We have a 2gram weight reduction from old to new.

The DX1 features a little chart for you to refer to as a tuning guide.

Our initial testing felt it was slightly smoother. The D1 may have more torque than the DX1? We have to do more testing. One thing is apparent, the DX1 generates more heat. The chart says is essential to use a cooling fan. We will add that and do more testing.
