well yea, a 10.5 smokes those when we were allowed to run brushless at our track last fall.

now it's 13.5 according to roar but we still run 19t as 10.5. who wants to make everybody buy new motors for that class.

I'll sit back and make the move to brushless once there are uniform standards / rules in place and once everyone decides what a "stock" brushless motor is.

Down here in Oz, off road stock is 17.5. In on road, "stock" is 13.5. On road 19T is 10.5 brushless. In off road, they are planning a "super stock" 19T class that will be 10.5 brushless

for the 27 t motors i would run
1 trinity monster motor
2 trinity co27

for the 19t motors i would run the
1 trinity chamelon2 19t
2 trinity komodo 19t

i think the trinity motors are much better than all the other motors unless its brushless

I regularly use a Trinity Co27 Monster and a 19T Checkpoint Money. Great motors

I have 2 co27s tuned by eXpress, a Orion Element, P2K2, and Ckeckpoint money 19t.

Out of all of them, for stock the co27 hands down. it even beats my p2k2 with ball bearings.

For 19t, the Checkpoint lasts longer on a cut and longer brush life as well as faster, but the Element seems to run better when they are hot (seems like the element has good magnets)

If I had to run brushed (after 4 1/2yrs of brushless)again, I think I'd just go fishing!
