Which motor has the most torque? (K'nex)? Answered

Hi there

I'm in the process of developing a K'nex new ball machine lift, but the current motor I am using (the TT one 2 speed- the one below) does not have enough torque to drive the axle. I was wondering which motor is best suitable and has a larger amount of torque. I was thinking the 12V one with the adapter, but since I don't own one yet, I cannot test one. So my question is which motor has the most torque?

yeah. the 12v motor will work fine. I used it to power 3 lifts at once and it handles it fine! :D

If you need more torque then gear it down. No need to run directly from the motor.
