interesting new motor chassis from Japan

just found this on PlazaJapan website
PJ chassis
Looks short enough for something I am interested in. Does not specify voltage as some of these small motors are less than 6v. PJ do normally say though.

This is the official website for the model, translated

chassis received yesterday. tested last night and it runs very well. I wanted it for one of my 3D printed OO9 Simplex locos and with a bit of modification it fitted. I plan to test its pulling power tonight, as I have found the Kato ones without weight struggle on anything other than free running lightweight wagons.
It is definitely 12v, but did not crank up power to max !
For G9 or O9 it would be easy to build up a body on the 'box' body.

It's currently sold out, even in Japan. But it looks good and I'm trying to find a place to put a back-order. The home site only allows you to register so they'll send you an email when it's available again.
