Default 2wd buggy brushed motor

Im looking for a motor for my 2 mod that is brushed. I have been looking at the Orion Revolutuions and the Checkpoint 12 turns. What other motors are good? Im looking for one that uses regular brushes so I can use my brush cutter.

Regular brushes just don't seem to hold up that well, so I would go with the Orion V2, Checkpoint, or the Cobalt 2/Shock 2 motors. The Orion's probably will last the longest between cuts, and it seems like you end up taking less off when you do have to cut the Orions. The Checkpoints hold up well, and are easier to work on.

I really like the Trinity motors with the oval brushes, they seems to hold up well, are easy to work on, and take "normal" springs. There are 3 different brush compounds available too, so you can go from long wear, to high power.

Does anybody know if there is a cheaper way to cut the comm? I found this old stock motor and I took it apart and it was black so I cleaned it out and put motor oil in it. But the motor has over 300 runs on it and I was looking thru this book and it says to vut the comm every 2-10 runs. So is there a cheaper way because I don't want to dish out $150 on something that wont improve performance that much. I have a xxx-t mf2 and I will just be bashing but might race sometimes.

Holy old motor batman! 300 is alot for a brushed motor. Their is no other cheap way to cut a comm. I mean a good motor lathe is around 50 bucks, i just picked up one for 55. If you dont want to cut a comm every couple runs go brushless

I would go with either the Check Point or Orion revolution motor. They require the least amount of maintance and are the easiest on the comm. A 12 or 13 turn should be right for it.
