I can't speak for mod - nor can I speak for anywhere but where I race (which is primarily 19T Foam) however, brushed motors have the advantage at this point for the non-super-hero drivers like the ones you mentioned in your post. And while gearing etc, applies in BL - it does also apply in brushed. Currently, the brushed-motored cars that are geared right are faster (about 1 to 2 tenths per lap) then the properly geared BL motors.

No doubt that BL is the future of RC - however, as it stands right now, brushed is still faster where I race (www.fastcats.ca).
Those drivers are running mod.

Volker, B. Baker, T. hodge, M. Dumas, P. Wynn, and so many others..they're all winning and doing great w/ brushless systems....
Those guys run BL in MOD, and Baker just blew away the Bl's at the ROAR onroad nats with his brushed motor, and they were all running 5 cell.
No big races yet where Bl and brushed run together in 19t.
