I actually think Brushless will lose some of its advantage with the 4200/4300 batteries being allowed. You will see Checkpoint/Trinity/Orion motors with 6 or 7 singles.

On a related question, what body shells will be allowed for 12th scale?

I know that there are different rules philosophies across the various IFMAR regions relating to how realistic bodies must be

At the Worlds in FL in Touring car guys were unsoldering 7 turns with 3300 batteries. Part of the reason Hara went to a 8 to try and make the motor last. Also remember they've been using 6 and 7 singles even with 3300. Biggest problem with the current brushed stuff is keeping them from coming apart as they spin so fast and generate so much heat.

Default the key new technology - fans

You have a valid point, especially with the new batteries. the heat from the motor (or in the case of brushless, from the ESC) is now the biggest challenge.

that is why we are seeing sedans with 3 fans (absurdly enough) in them

unfortunately, those of us with 12th scales don't have any room for motor fans

But you might have room for a ESC fan with brushless . I run the LRP in my RugRat, and it seems to be perfect on all tracks. The bottom end grunt isn't really a problem. On big tracks you don't need it, and on small tracks you just pick the right gearing. Top speed kinda isn't an issue, as it revs to the sky. On long tracks with sharp corners, it won't be that easy though...

what 12th scale body shells are legal in Europe?

Will it be the EFRA list for the worlds?
