Some more than others.
I currently run thr BMI DB12RR. Out of the box it is the most brushless ready. There is plenty of room in the rear pod for the wiring. Motor installation and removal is easy, and there is insane room for a large variety of gearing.
I also ran a Corally SP12X in the past. The motor pod has easy access for installation and removal, however the design of the 12X rear pod limits gearing potions.

The CRC Generation-X 1:12th car is completely brushless ready. Our #3200 kit had a running change back in October 2008 and all Gen-X 12 kits come stock with the Open-X Brushless Pod. The Open-X design is very brushless friendly with plenty of room on the left side of the pod for power and sensor wires. In addition to the convenience of the pod, the performance was enhanced by centering the motor with a short diff hub. CRC was the first to offer the short diff hub, which is necessary to center a brushless motor.

Most of the current batch of 12th scales are brushless ready. I have an Associated 12r5 and they fit just fine.

Bigdadracing, check your link. I believe it's misspelled.

Most all of the cars have pods setup for brushless with an offset hub. You pretty much cant go wrong being that most all of the modern cars are built around the brushless technology.
