Orion have been playing with the endbell by adding some vent holes around the bearing.
Best at the moment, if you can get hold of them, is probably the Checkpoint followed by the V2 then the Reedy Ti and finally the Trinity Cobalt2.
Looks like Fantom is sticking with the V2, they are also using the TOP teardown with laydown brushes for 19Turn.

The Checkpoints are killer. I haven't had a chance to run any of the Cobalt2 tear-downs yet but from what I'm told they're really good too. The V2's I've never had a whole lot of luck with but some have. I liked the original Ti motors but they tore through brushes like nothing. I think Reedy knows the Ti's are good enough for now and they're putting most of their effort into developing their brushless motors farther.

It evolved into the Cobalt2. All the Fantom drivers and Trinity drivers were running the Shock at the IIC in Vegas last September but I think that was the last major race it was used.

The Checkpoint motor is the chosen one.
