The stock Titan in my Slash has about 20-30 minutes of runtime with a 3300 mah 7-cell NiMh, and can almost keep up with Slashes with similar batteries and brushless motors, and they're only like $20.

If we are talking ROAR "Race Legal" 27t stock motors.. I would have to say the Epic Based Cobalt Co27 has proved itself to be a very reliable and fast stock motor. At my local track, the top several stock truck and buggy racers are brushed and use this motor. I do not find myself lacking for torque or speed against the brushless folks at all. These motors range in price from around $25 on sale to about $45 average for race tuned. I can get about three months or so of racing every weekend with these motors. I might go through 3-4 sets of brushes as well.

The Traxxas Titan motor is a 21T 550-sized motor...... they are sealed and cannot be rebuilt.. no replaceable brushes and the comm cannot be cut. Very short usable life.

Good luck!

Jerome

Definitely will put a brushless in the Slash then, and swap it between that and my road car now and again, had no idea they were un-rebuildable.

The Co 27 stock motor is a nice motor, I ran one in my XXX-t and was impressed by the low end power and top speed (stock motor wise) Check out the tuned version from banzai motors. http://www.banzaimotors.com/

Fantom FAN30432 Ultimate Team Edition Custom Tuned Stock Motor (Silver) from Fantom racing www.fantomracing.com/ is better than the CO27 (which is an awesome motor) and still winning races all over Australia.

It has more torque with a little less RPM than the CO27 mixed with LiPo makes a great combination.

stock motors are fine if your a basher and don't carve speed but over time stock motors wear out cause some are made cheaply

Thats Why you replace brushes and Use a lathe to cut the comm. After you do that your motor will be like new again.

pretty much any trinity based motor tuned and upgraded by other companies like axiom motors are good choices.

I had real good luck with my Orion Core stock motor. I maybe slightly biased, but I did quite well with them. If I am not mistaken, it was the only brushed motor to make the A-Main at the Off-Road Nats last year in Stock Truck.......
