Less cog torque is always good, but sometimes you have to accept it in order to get other factors where you want them. Some applications need all the torque at certain point on the performance curve like spec racing onroad or oval where top end rules. We are running some horribly inefficient setups in spec, but they go fast

In hammer down applications where most time is spent at high rpm the low speed advantages are not as important. In 2wd offroad or 1/8 electric the smoothness entering and feathering corners is very nice. Even in TC the drag from the cog torque can upset the car entering a corner. We have a Push control feature to soften this effect on motors with a lot of cog torque. Our motors are pretty free rolling and most add Drag Brake instead.
