Default Motor War !! V2 vs T6 vs Checkpoint vs Epic Shock

Currently I have some collection of Team Orion V2 and Reedy Pt. I like them all but I'm not completely satisfied because I see some problems or dislike, for examples:

V2 motors = the solder connection sometimes melted on hot days But I have overcome that problem with fan blowing to endbell.

Reedy Pt = I don't have any problems but I don't like the plastic endbell.

So, I'm looking to choose 1 or 2 kind of electric motor which have the following criterion :

1). No easy melting solder joint problems due to hotter days ( suxx big time )

2). Thick & hard commutator for longer lasting and heat resistant.

3). I want to relax between heat and final time. I don't want to do comm lathe and changing brush too often. Read : peace of mind & relax.

4). Powerful Motor of course

What do you suggest guys ?? What is the 1st and 2nd best motors ?

I would have to say the Check Point motor is by far the best. The most power and most efficency, and brushes last a ton of runs! Its the least maintnece next to a brushless motor. Byfar i would have to say the Check point motor.
