Default What brushed mod to run

Hi guys, Ive got a Losi xxx4 graphite and a xxxt2 mf. I'd like to put a brushed mod into them, what turns should i look at?

Im not interested in brushless just yet, what would a reedy 12x1 or a check point 12x2 be like??

cheers

the checkpoints are awesome motors. I had a 12 in a mf2 and it ripped.

I would recommend a 12x2 for the MF2 and either a 11x2 or 10x2 for the XXX-4. I also recommend the checkpoint motors. They have excellent power and take a while to wear out. I usually cut the comm every 20 runs with the checkpoint mods.

Agree with sport10. 12-14T doubles rock in stadium trucks, 9-11T doubles are good in 4WD buggy, though I'm running a 13x2 Fantom in my XXX4 right now because it runs a lot cooler. Checkpoints or Reedy's are both good motors and I prefer the enclosed endbell (Checkpoint, Cobalt, Revolution style) for off-road to keep the dust out and the comm clean longer.

I'd start with a 15 tooth pinion in the MF2 and 16-17 tooth in the xxx4 (assuming stock spur gears). I've not been as happy with single winds in stadium trucks.

11 x 2 Banzai Checkpoint in my T4, 9 x 1 Checkpoint in my B44, and 13 x 2 Banzai Checkpoint in my B4. Great motors, couldn't be happier.

I agree a 12x2 would work.

I`m surprised nobody mention that you first must decide on a motor depending on track size . Running a hot mod on a small track is useless and more likely cause you problems especially if you have a heavy finger . 12x2 is my favorite on medium tracks , but on bigger tracks I like a 10x2 . Also a few small indoor tracks I go to a 14x2 is almost to much .

Just slightly off topic, could anyone tell me what the equivalent of a tekin redline 632 6 turn brushless is, in a brushed wind? I want to know if its a good motor to run in a 2wd mod buggy.
