Looks more like an MFA Mabuchi RX-15 with a repro Technigold decal on it to me :)

The RX-15 wasn't available in great numbers, and once word got out they went very quickly. Only a few are available now & the asking prices are a bit silly :(

Thanks Jonny. It is like the graupner sport tuned and black motors. Like tamiya but rebadged

2 & 3 look to be the same motor, fatter wires, bullet connectors, resistor, & box with Japanese on it + oxidation on the brush tails & yellowing on the silicone insulators mean it's more likely to be a genuine Technigold ...

The endbell, case & box condition are exceptional for a 30+ year old part, it's very rare to see something that perfect, though I'm not saying it's not possible.

The pointy bits on the repro Technigold decals I've seen look blocky in extreme closeup, the genuine one's I've seen don't.
