    I don't know to much about the motors but when I want to research things, I usually go to towerhobbies.com google or ebay. On ebay just search for the item and see if any auctions have posted specs on them. It may sound kinda funny but it works!

    Ya, micros are starting to really catch on though. At my track there are already 3 heats of micros and there is atleast 1 new person that shows up every week that is interested in them.

    http://www.castlerc.com/ here is the link to the motors for ur mini t
    prices are 140-160 with motor and esc together, you should get speeds well over 30 mph easily longer runtimes, all you have to do for maitnance is lube the bearing once a month if that

    prove it with a video, i have. words mean nothing if u cant prove it.
    it was proved on the field and on the dynos that brushless motors are more powerfull the speed record was set by a brushless motor 111 mph and that was awhile ago and i never said brushed motors are slow i just said brushless is faster, the new rc car action did a review on the novak system and they said it lived up to what it claimed. the novak system is the weakest brushless system on the market today, only 190 watts, my motor has 700 watts, and the prices of brushless motors are goin down while brushed are goin up 2 years ago the best motor u could buy was 50 bucks now 60. my bl motor was 148 now u can buy better bl motors for 115 that are faster and cheaper. Trinity must have alot of influence on this bourd since there the only compeny not making brushless motors. lrp and ready are goin come out with them. how many videos do i have to show you to prove to u that brushless is faster. i remember reading a story in rc car action they had a on road direct drive with a d5 and 2 battery packs and they said it went only 60 mph. go to www.rumrunnerhobbies.com and u will see a vid of a hpi pro 3 goin 50 with 6 cells on a brushless setup. and it will get about 8 min on 2400 pack and 10min + on 3300 and u never have to rebuild the motor and that specific motor hes has a lifetime warrenty.so again show me the proof. i have
