If 13.5 is stamped "brushless stock" tomorrow, who cares how it matches up next to a 27t brushed? It isn't the same thing. Running them together and having every brushed guy _itching about it does nothing for us but hold us back. There are a ton of 13.5 racers out there that are ready to done with all this. Let's stop tippy-toeing around go race.
Dont get the wrong impression, I am
for brushless, but some people will see the brush/brusless esc option currently not a very wide "option".
I hope manufacturers will see the light and develop their product range
But, the motors themselves are a real issue if you want to make things fair too - just like brushed, between brands and even identical branded motors, there can be/is a lot of difference in power output which doesnt help sometimes. (Im sure this has already been mentioned)
