Default Lipo ESC Brush Motor

Can I use Lipo batteries and a Lipo ESC to run a brush motor. Class at new track says have to use brush motor. If not what is a good combination for brush motor and brush ESC?

Some brushless ESC's are brushed capable. Castles Sidewinder v3 and MMP can both run run either brushed or brushless. You just have to look and see if they can do both.
A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.
A 9mm might expand but a .45 will never shrink.

I believe Tekins will do brushed as well. Just depends on your speedo. If not, good old brushed speedos can often be found dirt cheap. I got an old Novak Cyclone off a guy for $10 once and used it for a 24 hour race.
