for brushes I would go with trinitys xxx brushes. They will get you a decent amount of runs out of each pair. For springs & brush style I would just run whatever came stock with it. You can adjust your timing accordingly to the track you will be running on.

I would stick to Trinity motors, in my 20 yrs of racing i have tried them all and keep going back to trinity. When i raced my mf1 and 2 i found a good 12 turn double in flat wire to be awsome. Keep in mind trucks need more torque as they are heavy to a buggy or tourer. Very rare did i go to a lower wind and the best was a 13 to a 12 to be great. Dont over gear the motor make sure you can here it reving to its peak just after 3/4 down the straight. the race is about corner speed and acceleration..

I have been racing mod motors for many years and some of the best motors I have ever ran are the Orion Core,Trinity P94 & D4 motors.I also like the Orion V2 motors. With the XXX brushes with the Speedgem motor will be a great motor.I run an 11X2 Speedgem motor with the XXX brushes and it is just as fast as my hand wound motors. I prefer to run 12 or 13 turn, but when the track can handle it I will run a 10 or 11 but 90 percent of the time I run a 12 turn.

Definitely XXX brushes. They last extremely long and I never burned a set.

Another vote for XXX brushes, or Reedy 777 brushes, damn do they last! I'm running a Orion V2 right now, and it pretty good, but its a pain to work on. Seems to need to be geared a couple teeth lower on the pinion that other motors. I would recommend the V2 never the less, the brush/comm life is pretty good.

I have an orion revolution 12x2 v2 engine,

3 green machines,

one mod can,

one fantom, 10x2,

and one monster 15 turn double armature and I was just wondering what the best combination of motos would be, I just want one good motor that doesn't heat up, but goes, that I can deam my "offroad motor" instead switching between all my good ones, example, Stock arm in mod can, etc.

What would be the most efficient combination??? I'm running this in an asoociated t3 with gp 3300's for the time, and a quantum esc.

The Orion v2 is as close as you can get to brushless with a mod motor.

I run three:
-FT B4: 12x2
-FT T4: 10x2
-BJ4We: 11x2
