they are all three good motors , there is also the trinity komodo dragon. or you could get one from a tuner such as banzaimotors.com. already tuned for best performance. the element with the alumium would be good choice also for a rusty with the cooling head on it. they all get hotter than the traxxas motor.

I would go with the Cobalt if those were my only choices.
The Team Checkpoint Money motor would be best-the brushes last longer and you don't have to cut the comm. as often.
If you can, you should get the Novak XBR 10.5 Brushless system-it is equal to a 19T brushed motor.
You will save money in the long run with the brushless because you won't have to buy brushes or cut comms.
I bought the brushless kit and sold my brushed motors and ESC to offset the cost.

For the fastest I would have to give the trophy to the Komodo Dragon. The longest lasting between comm cuts would be the V2 element. The Checkpoint falls right in the middle of these two IMO. I have yet to try the Cobalt Spec from trinity or the new Reedy 19T though.
