What's the best motor that has none replaceable brushes (closed can)?

You know like the Tamiya Sports Tuned or the HPI 20t etc etc.

With good maintenence I've been able to get 540 silver cans to last for years, so just wondering if there's anything of similar design but with more get up and go (that also has last forever brushes, well they seem too lol.).

Yes it is because motor cleaning/brush changing/comm truing isn't my thing lol.

I would have considered it if I didn't already have a Keyence Esc to go in my new car (1/12th).

I really do like the idea that with a closed can all I have to do is clean out with a motor spray and oil bushings and it's all done basically. Probably most of the reason I stuck with closed cans in off-road for 7 years. Motor maintenance just holds no interest. I just like to get it over and done with.
