hey...nice tip...thanks!

some information want to share with you about gearing.

first you need to understand the torque output of electric motor. the theory is that at zero RPM the motor generates greatest torque while at high rpm it has less torque.

i.e. you can actually over gear a motor but be sure you dont use full throttle at the straight to avoid extreme power comsumption. the brushes problem that you have is actually caused by loading the motor at high RPM at most of the time. i.e. high rpm = higher friction between brushes and com = high temp at com area.

you can try over gear a motor at least 3 to 4 tooth but be sure you only apply 60% of throttle at the straight. only use full throttle when you need to overtake the other cars but you can only do this once or twice in a battery pack run. with proper throttle control, your motor should run cooler so do your battery pack.
that might be a problem for some of us...used to mash the throttle and coming to straights...if you said only 60% throttle, i think you could use some blocks to limit the travel of the throttle...hehe!!

For the sake of your ESC and motors I would say get rid of the TC3
