    Why not brushless? there are better brushed motors but they are rather hard to find and wont be much cheaper than a cheap brushless system. Brushless systems are more efficient than a brushed motor so you will have more runtime with the same battery. Also if you want to go fast brushless is just the only way...

    Look at Speed Gems or Orion motors, a 17T motor is a lot faster then the Titan. Recommend starting with stock gearing, monitor your temps, and adjust from there keeping the motor temp < 160*/f.

    Is it a budget issue? Or is there another reason that you MUST stay brushed?

    If it's a budget issue... I converted mine to full brushless for only $40.00!

    All of it is back in stock at Tower now.
