Get an Orion V2 or a Checkpoint motor, they last forever. I would probably get a 12 or 13t single. That will give you lots of power, but it wont be to hard on the comm/brushes.

what ever you do, do not go below 15t on a drift motor when u start out, if you go to "the offical drift thread" and ask Paz he can tell you why

but that Trinty CO27 would be the one, but if you want a little more speed, you can get a 19, but 15 is a little too much, but u can work with it

I have a team associated 19T motor which came in my TC3, I have just got hold of some threaded blue shocks, and a few of the graphite bits off ebay cheap.
I'm presuming the one that came with the TC3 although 19T aint much cop, so am after annother. So someones experience of a motor which will go forever and is quite fast without chewing a 3000mah battery in 3 minutes is what I'm after. Need to be able to get it in the UK to. also not to fast for drifting as I'm just starting out.

I'm sure I could change brushes, cant be hard, I am quite technicly minded so with some advice I'd be fine, but dont have a lathe to cut the comm.

Goes brushless, get a Novak ss5800, almost no maintenance needed.

bit too much money me thinks. £50 limit. £30 is better though.
Also my esc is an LRP runner digital plus reverse(it came with the TC3 (wich came with a 19T).I dont know what turn it would allow down to.

I think runners are only good to 16 turns. I could be wrong. I'm sure your local hobby shop can cut your comm for you. Or someone at the race track. P2k2's are very torqey motors. Check out www.axiommotors.com they have plenty to choose from.
