Went to my LHS last night to pick up some parts, the guy there is super cool. I asked what kind if any "tuned motors" he had. They don't really carry any, however he did give me a bunch of good info to "tune" my own. All the guys that I race with -1 run brushless, so I want to be able to stick with the pack running brushed, and of course lay it down on them once in awhile.
A final drive of 6.8-7.0 is pretty tall. wouldn't that just put a bunch of strain on the motor? Wouldn't I have to rebuild it more often and risk damaging my ESC?
