    it's a good deal. if you figure the money you would spend on the esc, the motor, and changing the brushes,compaired to 200.00 for the esc, and brushless motor with no mainence, it is a good deal, and they are crazy fast.with incredable torq.

    dont listen to these idiots, brushless motors are the best. the novak system is great, the lehner system i have has too much power broke the cvd bones in half great runtime. there a new brushless motor thats out for 115 dollars at www.finedesignrc.com its faster than the lehner.htey dont have brushes the lehner motors have lifetime warrentys on them. you can see the inside of the motor on www.rumrunnerhobbies.com, there are no brushes

    does'nt have the power? brushless motors have 700 watts caompared to the top of the line 250 watt d6, and the trend now is more rpm. you only need 1 brushless motor in an e-maxx to make it go 45+ mph. pimp where are you getting your info? have you ever owned a brushless motor? have you seen the new rccaraction mag where they test a brushless motor and aay its more powerful?
    have you ever seen a vid of a car with a brushless motor in it? the motor i have broke 2 cvd bones in half.

    Brushless motors also are more efficient, therefore you need less battery power to get the same horsepower. There is less friction (friction = heat = lost energy), so you don't have as much energy loss going from the battery to the wheels.

    Sorry, I didn't read the rcca issue, just learned it from college (BSEE). I also was on the solar car team that took first place in the US a few years back (UMR Solar Car Team). We used brushless DC motors in every solar car we built.

    i also read in the july issue that the ae car that went 111mph used a brushless motor with 24 cells. i havnt seen can handle so many cells. can you use a regular esc with a brushless motor cause that is the only way i can see using so many cells?

    no u can not use a reg esc with a brushless motor, and why is it that the only way u can see a brushless motor handle 24 cells is with a brushed esc http://www.finedesignrc.com/this a link to a site where you can buy esc that can handle up to 40 cells. its a esc designed for brushless motors
