Basicly any 19T or lower windings can hit 35-40 MPH as your looking for. If you are looking to just drag race up the street go with Li-Po and brushless. Get a 4800 Li-Po pack for longer run times. Get your 3.5 brushless and watch your car fly at 60+ if you can manage to keep it under control.

The gears have nothing to do with how a brushless motor works. First gif is a brushed motor animation. To put it simple, the windings rotate on an armature in the middle of the magnets.

On a brushless, the magnets rotate inside the windings, which are now stationary in the motor can.

Hope this helps, I'm trying to put it as simple as possible

No, you buy the brushed motor and brushed motor ESC, or you buy the brushless motor and brushless ESC. Everthing else is the same. No special gears to buy. Brushless is more money to buy but you don't need to buy anything else as far as motor is concerned. For brushed you also need a lathe, slave motor for lathe (preferably a 55T-75T). Spare brushes and some simple tools. Hope this helps.

I think he means a pinion gear.

Any motor will go 85+ MPH if you have a good throwing arm or a high enough place to drop it off...

I think if you read all the posts he is questioning how they work.

He said if he buys a brushless or a 19t will he have to buy a separate gear to turn the others to get the car moving (pinion gear). Atleast thats how i read his last post.

He should already have a pinion gear on the old motor. Assuming he just wants to make his R/C car run 35-40 mph (go faster). If he has no motor then you would be correct. He needs to buy a pinion, meaning he is new to the hobby. I now see what you are saying. However with that said he should have some pinions already if he isn't new to the hobby. I do see he is a new user on the boards though.

before u go any furhter with that car i suggest u get some person to person advice from a hobby shop or the like. Niko cars arent made to upgrade electronics and i doubt the esc in it wrould handle any type of powerful motor. I also wouldnt waste any money going brushless if its going to be in a niko as it would be far to powerfull for its cheap drivetrain. Just saving u some hastle in future.

That Nikko car is a toy...its not meant to be raced or upgraded like electric touring cars in hobby shops. Get an AE TC4 or Losi XXX-S ready to run kit...they even come with brushless systems installed nowadays...
