Default stock motor

How long do brushes last on a stock motor? while running 6 cells?

It depends on how hard you're working the motor, and how much you want to spend - the top drivers will change brushes and skim every few runs, a club racer could get 6-10 meetings out of a set before a rebuild.

what if i just use my motor for bashing, i don't plan on racing this car, just having fun with it. How long do you think i could get out of a pack of brushes?

It also depends on what type of brushes you have.
If you go to long, you will burn up the comm and this will cost you more than chaging brushes.

If it is just for bashing and not racing, you can buy some inexpensive 'low wear' brushes that will last a while.

You should still clean your motor out once and a while.
keep the brushes and springs and everything intact, to spray it out with motor cleaner and lube the bushings after.

This will give you the most life.
