I have a Novak GTB, with the 5.5 velocity motor. I will never go back to brushed motors. No more cutting com's or changing brushes. The older SS system has some problems with overheating and shutting down untill it cools. If i were u I would get the new Novak GTB ESC, its smaller than the LRP and comes with a fan to help with cooling. You can get this with eather the 5.5t velocity motor, very much like a good 8 or 9 turn, or the 6.6t motor that is more like a 10 to 12 turn. You can then go and get the 5800 kv motor that is just a little more than a 19 turn. All of these motors can be changed out with the esc. The only advantage of the LRP system imo is that the sensor wire on the motor is removable and there is a short one available for use is TC's were shorter wires are used.

well guys.. i'm going to put in my 2 cents.
i have been racing for 25 years and seen a lot of motors in my time.Both brushed and brushless and i can say that if you want somthing that you don't have to rebuild all the time...than go brushless.The brushed motors are great if you are a racer but if all you want to do is play around i would buy a brushless.You will get longer run times with less rebuild time no cutting the com or putting in new brushes all the time. Just my opinion....

p.s...I HAVE HAD THE NOVAK 5800 FROM THE FIRST MONTH IT CAME OUT AND ALL I HAVE DONE TO IT WAS PUT NEW BEARINGS IN IT...AND THATS RACING OFF ROAD EVERY WEEK WITH IT IN MY T4..

The Offroad Orion V2 can last up to 45 runs on the same pair of brushes, so maintenance wouldn't need to be done as regurlary as other conventional mod motors. You don't need to buy a Comm Lathe either. There are much cheaper alternatives such as using a Pencil Eraser to clean the comm or using a specific Comm Stick. The V2 is the closest thing to brushless IMO.

If you have $165 for a Remanufactured SS5800 system, then get that!

It's the only motor to get, really. It's perfect for the basher and the racer.
