I ran mod outdoor for like 3 years now...not a full time electric guy (race 1/10th and 1/8th nitro onroad instead) but electric mod TC is just fun and easy to drive.
I gave up brushed motor once I've use the GTB with 4.5 motor...my 8T V2 motor on the same car just is not as fast and as EASY as the GTB 4.5 combo. Not to mention, if gear it a little too tall, snapped wind, motor get stucked, then batteries will be fired (did that multiple times...)
Yes, with bonded brushless rotor you have to be carefull about FDR...but mine is with sintered rotor, I ran a 8.9 FDR on my TA05R and after 7 minutes run the motor temp was 140..probably 40 more degree before it will thermal.
To answer your question....for mod TC, you are crazy for NOT getting brushless system. Well, some ppl like to work on motor every run and be a little slower too. Thats beyond me...
Yes, another fun toy...I was using Team Orion (Peak) 4800 lipo...I stop @ 7 minutes cause I don't have lipo cut-off, just don't want to take my chance for 10 minutes run...
