Default Motors???

Hi everyone, Im new to this forum but I have been into RC for about 20 years now and I have a couple of questions about motors.

I have a Tamiya Clodbuster that needs new motors and I want them fast and cheap! I have narrowed it down to these (unless anyone has a better idea)... the Trinity Serpentine 14T Double or the Epic Intense 14T Double. My question is, one has FB-9 magnets and the other one has FB-6 magnets... whats the difference and is one better than the other for a monster truck???

Oh yeah, and the tranny's are completely stock other than bearings... so I dont know if the 14T motors will eat them up or not???

Hey Jaws,
if I were you i'd go ahead and get the speed gems. Nice and reliable where as I've never seen the epics run. As for the stock drivetrain you'll be fine unless you hammer on it extremely hard. Even if u run it as hard as you can your gears will still hold up alright. Only thing I'll reccomend is some aftermarket 13t
32p gears from RRP or Traxxas and a spare gear bag or two for the clod.

Well, I know the speed gem series is good... I had one years ago and won a lot of races with it. Does anyone else know more about these motors and/or magnet styles???
