[B]Just to maybe throw more fuel on the fire. Doesn't brushless also use bearings in the motor? A big no-no in stock class if so.

they do use bearings so that makes them illegal for racing in stock.

i don't mind letting some one with a bl in club races and
i guess it really is up to the race director but it doesn't sound
like it is worth all the trouble.

Ok folks, now for one of those sincere moments !!! Hope I didn't offend anybody with my comments. I openly believe that BL is a good thing for the hobby. Putting aside any performance talk...I honestly see where it could help in recruiting AND KEEPING(thats a big one) new drivers and provide a less serious avenue for existing drivers. Lets face it,there's enough stress out there........racing rc cars with our friends and family should fun, fun, fun. Hope all of you are having fun regardless of which motor you run. As for brushless motors.... time will tell.

Evoracer.. you are 100% correct, and I don't think anybody will disagree with you. Not only would brushless bring in and keep people in the hobby (at least those that would of left due to disliking motor maintanance), but brushless can truely bring back "spec" racing. That is a HUGE thing in my book because it puts more emphasis on driving.

My whole beef is that they shouldn't be mixed with brushed motors.

Hi guys, it was brought to my attention by a co-worker that I may have been mis-quoted on this forum. I had posted earlier that the Super Sport was similar in performance to a 19 turn in the Limited Profiles (at least that's what I meant to say). I guess someone confused what I posted with the overal performance was similar to a 19 turn.

That's not usually the case. On a very tight small on-road track with lots of traction (like Socal) you have to overcome a lot so the power is robbed from the system. Truth is an 11 or 12 turn on that same layout would be similar in "on-track" speed.

Don't know if anyone cares, just wanted to clarify.

Also since everyone seems to be concered with "Roar rules" or what ever governing body calls a stock motor stock, did anyone notice that, that is the ONLY rule anyone tyres to follow. Most tracks in the US don't weigh cars, check body height, or even care what body you run for that matter. These can be bigger factors than a motor. If it's said to "run by the rules" then run by all of them, that would keep it "fair" wouldn't it?....

If you don't think racing against BL is fair, put your lathe and stock of brushes on ebay and go pick one up. You'll like it, promise. I'm just kidding guys... really just a joke.

Totally not true. Running a mm or two lower then the rules, running a cheveronmodel body, or shaving off an ounce of weight more then you are supposed to would NOT make as big of a difference as running a motor outside your class like a BL, or 19t.
