Brushed Motor --

An electric motor that uses brushes to transfer battery power to the comm, which energizes coils of wire wrapped around an armature. This creates a magnetic field that 'pushes' against fixed magnets mounted in the motor can, causing the armature to rotate as needed. After every 180* of rotation, the polarity is reversed. Brushed motors are available in a variety of sizes, and are usually rated by turn and wind, such as 10x4 (10 turns, 4 winds - or 10 quad). Brushed motors may also be rated as stock or modified, as well as machine wound or hand wound. Brushed motors commonly temp at about 200* to 240* after a good full run. If the motor is running hotter, it may be overgeared - try dropping a few teeth on the pinion gear. Some brushless ESC's can also run brushed motors - when using this kind of set up, always make sure you install the correct capacitors on the motor. Also See - MOTOR CONVERSION
