That said, I just did this same research and unless you are going to bash or race once per month or so, you might as well go brushless. The motor will get slower over time and after 10 or so races (so I am told) you should consider "turning the com". For that you need to buy a lathe (minimum $50 probably $100+). By the time you do that you might as well go brushless. Not to mention changing out brushes regularily.
