Brushed RC Car Motors

Brushed motors are great for kids or anyone starting out in the hobby, “As” long as you are not planning on running hard these motors are fine. However, if you are going to be running you RC hard and doing a lot of bashing, Then you will want to go with a Brushless motor set-up. The brushed motors can’t handle a lot of hard running as they will over heat.

“I” have had a couple of the brushed motors that melted the wires right off the motor due to over heating.

Brushless RC Car Motors

Brushless motors are great for some real bashing and racing. Anyone who is more experienced in the RC hobby or that wants to bash and run hard should be looking for brushless. The Brushless motor set-up can handle the heat that comes with bashing and running high speed as well.

You can find motors for every type of RC. For on-Road racing a higher kv rating will work best , For Off-road bashing and crawlers a lower kv rating is more of what you need. The lower kv has lower top speed but higher torque, Which is great for bashers and crawlers. Those types of vehicles need more torque to power that or over obstacles.

Brushless System – My Thoughts And Experience

Personally I have owned several Brushless motor systems, Each one has it owns qualities. Once you go to a Brushless, you won’t want to go back to brushed. When my Brushless car breaks, I have a brushed car for a back up till I can fix the Brushless one. However, I end up not using the brushed car and just wait until I get the Brushless fixed. The two are just not the same. “I” don’t like running my brushed car anymore.

What are you Experiences with RC Motors? “I” would like to hear you thoughts on this subject. Leave me a comment below.

  1. These rc motors look awesome. I need to replace my rustler brushed motor. What do you recommend for brushless? I am looking to go fast but I do not race. Can I find one that will go fast but still bash around the yard?


    1. Hi John,
      First off, yes you can upgrade to a fast brushless that will still let you bash. You will need to upgrade the motor and ESC, as well as the receiver and transmitter. Now if you are going to run mainly 2s lipo the castle 1406 is a good choice. If you want the ability to run 3s lipo then you can go with the traxxas vxl venileon system or even the castle mamba 1515. The traxxas vxl is really a great system and they have a power up program. That means you give them your old brushed system and you get a discount on the new brushless system.
      Thank you


  2. These look like some really great rc car motors. I am looking to replace my brushed motor from my traxxas rustler, what would you recommend? I want brushless to go fast but I do not race.
