Default Stock Class Combos?

Hi guys,
With the change in rules that Victoria is now facing with Stock (to catch up with the rest of Australia), im looking into buying a 17.5, but with reading others opinions on Lipo or Nimh, brushed or brushless for this class im unsure of what path to take. So i thought maybe this could be a thread to discuss peoples opinions and the differences they are finding on what combination works best for this class, on either short tracks or long. I for one am going to stick with my GTB and also my Lipos so im wondering what motor will work best, im leaning towards a NOVAK 17.5 but if a tuned brushed motor is going to work even better, with bearings now being allowed, i may have to look into this.

Opinions?

*Note if there is already a thread on this topic, by all means delete this one, or dont reply.

Cheers

Well i would have to say that a brushed motor is still faster. If you get the gearing right brushless is close but not quite there yet. I am running the novak system and I would have to say it is quite quick. At the recent keilor cup both stock categories were won with a brushed motor

It seems to be a case of brushed/nimh or brushless/lipo. The brushed/nimh combo has a slight edge at the moment but also costs a lot more to be competitive.

I have been running a brushless motor for most of the year at club level and ORRCA rounds (when legal) I belieave the brushless to be on the same par as a good brushed motor, as at the last meeting The Keilor cup running brushless in a losi xxxcr I qualifyed in P2 and finished 3rd for the day, i belieave we were all running lo-po's in the top 3,
I allso won the 2008 ORRCA Vic Drivers Seriers in 2wd stock and 2rd in 4wd stock with most of the points coming from rounds were brushless was legal.
