Default Picking a stock brushed motor

What is the best way to pick the best stock brushed motor? I have heard several different things from different people. It doesn't look like they are going to allow 13.5 to run in jbrl so if I'm going to run in that series it looks like I'm going to have to run brushed. So how do I find a killer brushed stocker.

CO27 based stock motor should do what you need.

The new Reedy might be the way to go.

I have one of the C027, but what numbers on the label do you need to look at to see which is going to be the fastest, torque, efficiency?

Just so you guys know Banzai motors will cut ANY motor for free at the JBRL events. Scott White and the team are always willing to do a little motor work for the local racers. If you supply the brushes he will replace those on the motor as well or you can do it when you get the motor back!

Go for a CO27, look for the watts, the higher the better. Look for above a 63 if you can find one.
