I have been running a Novak Super Sport brushless in my T3 and just love it. It has boatloads of torque and top speed, I highly recommend it.

I heard that Novak will be coming out with a racer version of the sport brushless, more like a low wind mod.

Correct! Novak will come out with a "racer version" of the Sport Brushless! It won't be out for quite some time though. I would not be surprised if it's next year at the earliest. They are now concentrating on finishing and releasing a Brushless motor geared towards the E-Maxx & T-Maxx users... where a lot of the money is at the moment. After the great reviews I have gotten from actual users on the tracks I have visited around Northern California (plus seeing their smooth performance for myself), I will soon be installing Novak's Sport Brushless Motor into 3 of my buggies. These are the B4, XXX Kinwald, & the XXX-4. Though Novak claims it to be equal to about a 10T single Mod when at it's max, most say it's more like an 11T or 12T single. Either ways, that and it's maintenace free convenience makes it a worthwhile and valuable purchase! Imagine running battery after battery on it without worrying about it getting too hot or having to replace the brushes, brush springs, & dealing with the Comm!?! Definitely making it Worth It! It would hands down win any endurance type races for sure! All we need now is for a Brushless Class to be created at the major races. That or let them compete with the Mod Class once their newer & more powerful motor is out!

Check this Site out for even more in-depth answers as to why the technology and application of Brushless Motors are the very near future for most and already are for others. It will only be a matter of time before the Brushless System becomes even more widespread and accepted:
