Default 19t brushed vs 13.5brushless

Im just woundering if a 13.5 brushless is the same as a 19t brushed...do they go the same speed? If the 19T is faster, what brushed motor do you recommend?

For TC, six minutes may certainly shift the balance toward 13.5 brushless.

19t is more similer to 10.5... 13.5 would be around 23t...

19T is no doubt faster than 13.5, however, brushless motors don't exibit heat fade and are much more efficient... not to mention easier to maintain.

at our club we run 19T with the 13.5brushless

its a pretty fair race.

the 19t is faster

but i just recently made the switch, and im so glad.

the efficiency takes 1/3 less juice out of my packs, so charging on race day is relaxing now.

The 13.5 is equvint to a 27T....A fast 27T
I have a couple of 27T that are faster than a 13.5 on the top end but as for the torque the 13.5 kills a 27T that is on off road ..I am sure it is probably the same for you on-road guys...I run a 13.5 in my truck and a 27T in my buggy but that is only till I can get a 13.5 for my buggy...If that helps...

19t is faster, even in a TC at 6 minutes.
19t is faster, in a 1/12 scale even at 8 minutes

a 23t would be the closest you could get to a 13.5 IMO

Hey guys... can you suggest a good 19T one that would be faster than a 13.5 Brushless?

Have you read the thread. Most 19t brushed motors are faster.

Just shop around for a 19t motor and look for the motor with the highest revolutions per minute(RPM).

You have to remember a 13.5 might be slower but its got waayyyy more torque. So the guy running the 13.5 againts you can run taller gears. 19t motors could handle tall gears but if someone over does it you'll be able to fry an egg on it(lunch at the track?)

What's your goal?

How good of a racer and tuner are you?

What's your budget?

-Like everyone else, my goal is to win.
-I am a Team Driver of Serpent America her in Puerto Rico, but all mi experience is on the 1/10 gas cars. I have a 13.5 Brushless LRP, for the Super Stock class, but I notice that the 19T motors are faster than the 13.5 that we are using. The budget is no problem; I just want to buy the best 19T that you can recommend.
We had been racing EP only for a couple of months, but the level of challenge is increasing.

I would try to get a Money Motor, a Komodo, or a Chameleon C2.
Try to go with a good motor tuner as well. Brood makes good motors, so do Fantom and Putnam.
I really liked my C2, lots of top end, but not alot of bottom end, so it was easier to control.

This is the C2 from trinity, I have no idea what tuners would still have these, but I think they're worth a shot to try and find.
