What are most people using nowadays for electric on-road?

1) Brushed or Brushless

2) Sensored or Sensorless

3) NiMH or Li-Po

4) Belt Drive or Shaft Drive

What do the pros use?

Any suggestions of good companies?

1. Both, brushed Mabuchi in mini class and sensored BL 13.5 in 1/12th.
2. For 17.5 and 13.5 your going to want sensored, probably even for 10.5. Beyond that it's open season.
3. NiMh, LiPo isn't legal in my local race due to insurance issues at the LHS.
4. Both my Mini and my 1/12th are 2wd so use neither shaft or belt.
