All Hyper-Dash Motors are performs better than Rev-Tuned Motor and Light-Dash Motor on revving but has medium torque performance compared to the torque-based motors. Both HD3 and HD PRO (made by SMC Motor) use carbon brushes instead of brass brushes, allowing for longer running life.

All motors, except the original Hyper-Dash Motor, can be used in Tamiya-sanctioned race tournaments. As both the HD1 and HD2 are discontinued, only HD3 and HD PRO can be used.
