Default Looking for brushed motor advice.

I have 2 Novak GTB's in 10.5, 7.5, and 5.5 in two of my trucks, obviously not all at the same time.

For my 10T that I dont use that often I was wanting to put in a brushed motor, bc I already have a speed controler. Problem is I dont know which one. There are so many of them out there, and I dont know that much about brushed motors.

I was thinking no lower than a 12t but Im not interested in something as high as a 19t. Its just for once in a while goofing around with.

What brand/model motor is of good qualty that will not be to expensive?

Thanks

I would suggest an Orion motor. The Method is a budget version of the V2 motors. They have 13x2 and 15x2 winds, both would be moderate, but quick.

Well I'm no brushed motor guru by any means but I'm kinda in the same boat as you. I race brushless but for fun I have a GT7 and run some mod motors. I didn't want to spend a bunch of money so I just went with the Trinity Speed Gems. It works really well and you can get any turn of motor in the range you mentioned. I run the 13T Kobal in my Rustler, and at around $35 that's pretty good in my opinion.

the speed gems motors are great budget motors that do have plenty of rip to them and are very raceable.

I would recommend checkpoint motors, very powerful perform well even with minimal maintenance on the comm, plus they are sexy looking motors imo.
