      Spirit has changed motors frequently, as they are a small operation. Some have been sold in cars without any wrapper. The Slot Car News Motor List (linked above -- thanks) has the best info I could compile, supplemented by my own tests.

        Thanks for that. Have that page BMed. Gives info yes. But could do with pics to see what motor I have in the BMW, Gitanes # 25.

          Would that be a long can (FK-180) without a wrapper? This is the no-wrapper motor in the Peugeot 406:



          I don't know if it is the same motor, but the two cars were made around the same time. The specs are possibly the same as for the S3x. How exact do you need to be? Spirit motors came in different flavors with considerable overlap due to production variation.

              Sorry to say this is the only other Spirit motor I photo'd, in the back, at the end of the line. Spirit "Le Mans":
