The Hyper Mini Motor (Japanese: ハイパーミニモーター, Haipā Mini Mōtā) is a Mini 4WD motor manufactured by Mabuchi Motor and released by Tamiya in December 1987. It is the very first Grade-Up Parts to be released and is the first tuned-up motor to be released.
On the outside, the Hyper Mini Motor has a black endbell cap and silver metal housing, complete with the Tamiya motor sticker.
The motor's rev performance is between that of Atomic-Tuned Motor and Rev-Tuned Motor. (While the torque characteristics is similar to that of Torque-Tuned Motor) However, the re-release version of the motor (released in 2012) was very power-hungry that some even have compared it to the Hyper-Dash Motor.
It is manufactured by Mabuchi Motor who manufactures most of Tamiya's motors.
