Yeah there is some truth to that, but a motor that has hit the track isn't worth as much money. And you cant buy driving speed.
The power rating of a brushless motor will be more important than a brushed in the future.
It will be the range in which its considered a good motor that will count.
I hate numbers but it will be impossible to keep them out of the equation.
Consistency between each motor will be very important per manufacturer.
Theres no tune ability, so the motors will have to be as close as possible in power.
Different rotors or stronger or weaker to make one better or worse will be the only fix either way.
The numbers will play a major roll if brushless is ever to 100% be excepted through out.
