Better in what way, feel, speed, tourque, price, Onroad, Offroad, 1/10th scale, 1/12th scale, etc.?
Popularity is yet to be seen since the Novak Velociti and LRP Sphere are just hitting store shelves.
Neither.
You have to use a designated brushless ESC with a Brushless motor.

Actually, the Novak GTB works with brushed motors also, with no limit on turns.

Sorry, you did say brushless esc with brushless motor. Just pointing out that the Novak as well as the LRP brushless speed controls also work with brushed motors.

The track I run at have been running stock brushed and brushless together. You can tell a difference in the speed towards the end of a race. The brushless are about as fast as the beginning to end.

I ran the Novak GTB with the 5.5 at a 2 day event this past weekend in a Pro4 and I was able to keep up with guys running 8's and 7's
Finished 4th overall in the mod touring class.....I was not lacking in power just driving!lol Definately a good investment since I did not have to service the motor all weekend!

I'd really have to say they were doing something wrong if thats the case. Most likely gearing, but once they get it right you better get yourself a 7-8 turn. Also could be you are just a more skilled driver.

Just my point ! NO motor work needed.... Just charge and drive !

Keep in mind, oil those bearings from time to time.

Brushless is the way to go if you have a steady group of guys running modified.

Cost effective over the long haul.
Vertually zero maintenance.
Super effecient=more runtime.

What more can you ask for.

hey Jamie, I heard those guys had a BLAST @ SSH with their Brushless.
Mod on a large track like SS is like stock on a small track (willis).
Just a little finger control needed.

95% of the reason why I use brushed is because I love working with my hands and doing mechanical things. Brushless in my personal experience had its ups and downs too, but I like brushed more because of the mechanical perspective.
