Default brushed motor options?

hi all,

i was reading another post about loss of grunt after upgrading to MH gear and it got me wondering - is there a more powerful BRUSHED motor i could install into my mcpx v2? i dont ever plan on going through the hassle of upgrading to brushless but if i could plug in a better brushed motor giving similar benefits that could be an easier solution for more power?

Brushless mods are really well done nowadays, it's much less hassle than you think. I was worried about it at first too, but now I don't look back. My first BL conversions were done in a way that would allow me to switch back to brushed if I decided I didn't like it, I've removed those backwards compatibility things now and just gone pure BL only. Well worth it.

If you still don't want to and just want to keep things stock but want more, then wait for the 130x.
