My oldest brushless motor is a 13.5t. I bought it in early summer 2007 and have used it basically every weekend since then. Still as good as new.
When someone is intent on excelling in an otherwise laudable manner, does he not desire to inflict pain on others by means of his exalted status and enjoy the envy he arouses? Is there not an anticipated delight in an artist's ability to defeat his artistic rivals, which heightens his euphoria in creation?
