looking to upgrade
Looking to switch from the brushed system to a brushless. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the brushless besides being quicker? Does it wear the batteries faster, any problems such as life of motors etc? any help is appreciated
Brushless is more efficient, so it actually uses less battery power. Also, except for the bearings, they basically require no maintainance. There's no disadvantage to brushless motors compared to brushed ones.. it's simply a newer, better technology.
What Arakon said. I had my Titan for about a month before it died and have been running my Vxl for about 2 years. I am not easy on it either but I do watch my temps and don't let it get to hot. I have taken it apart a couple times for cleaning/oiling the bearings and then I just blow out the can with compressed air. Put it back together and go.
