    you will see a great loss of power. also you should try breaking in that motor with the water break in method and you can replace brushed in a motor fairly simple and brushes are cheap so when you see a great deal of power loss just replace the brushes in the motor im guessing its a titan 12 turn
    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    If you brushes are starting to go bad you will notice less power and also you may start hearing a screeching noise coming from you motor.
    I reject your reality, and blow it up with C4.

    If it's a titan 12t from traxxas you won't be able to replace the brushes unfortunately. But it does give you a good reason to go BrushLESS =]

    Traxxas 12T titans are pretty cheap to replace. but if you do go brushless, there is almost 0 maintenance.
