I was reading in my Rc car mag that the brushless electric can produce nearly 1 hp , how good is that !!>? and also between 40000 to 60000 RPM . Apparantly also that with ne other conventional electric engine that only 60 % of the battery is going into the engine and the rest is going into heat and friction though with the brushless u can increase that figure to 90 % or more, meaning longer runtimes. Though another thing is that u do need a special kind of ESC , because it has something to with the timing of the engine and the high amounts of high voltage spikes when applying "brakes" causing the ESC to possibly shut down.
last sunday i clocked a single brushless motor with 18 cells doing 45mph,this was as he was slowing cos a tyre came off.i used my quicksilver gun.the setup he had was not alot of money either.
