The Mach-Dash Motor (Japanese: マッハダッシュモーター, Mahha Dasshu Mōtā) are a series of Mini 4WD motors manufactures by Mabuchi Motor and later SMC Motor and released by Tamiya. Its single-shaft motor version is the third fastest motor released by Tamiya.
On the exterior, both versions has the red endbell cap and silver metal housing. Both motors are the speed-focused motors.
The single-shaft version of the motor is powerful than the Hyper-Dash Motor at the time it released, but because of that, the motor has shorter running life and very power-hungry as the results.
The double-shaft version is the more refined version of its single-shaft motor counterpart and behaves similar to that of Sprint Dash Motor, which explains why it can be use on official tournaments. It is also the only variant of Mach-Dash Motor that use silver carbon brushes.
Because both motors has moderate torque, they are not suitable for race tracks that has very high acceleration requirement.
- Currently only the Mach-Dash Motor PRO, which was designed for the Mini 4WD PRO cars, can be used in Tamiya official race tournaments as well as unofficial tournaments that abides Tamiya's race rules.
