Default Opinions on Brushless Motor Options(Brushed Also)

My traxxas titan stopped working the other day. Brushes are worn on it. Figured now is the perfect time to upgrade. Been looking around at options and there's tons. I've been looking at everything from tekin brushless combos to holmes brushed motors. I'm looking to still crawl with the rig but also looking for just a touch of speed. Some time out on the beach. I'm not trying to turn it into a racer by any means. The combos I have been looking at are:

Tekin Redline Sensored 13.5t 3500 kv motor with a Mamba Max Pro (originally said the sidewinder sv2 but overlooked it not be sensored compatiable. Thanks Meatwad)

Venom V550 4200kv combo

Novak Goat 3S Brushless Crawler System 18.5t

Holmes BRXL with a 35t TourqueMaster Pro

Tekin FXR Rock Crawler Combo 35t Pro

I'm also open to any other suggestions on motors and esc. Been seeing the momba max pro esc being used. I'm also going to be making the switch from nimh to lipo batteries. Thanks for your time and input.

The sidewinder is not a sensored esc.

Sensored brushless or brushed is the only way to go. Brushed is cheaper than sensored brushless, good brushed is about the same price. Brushed has better low speed resolution IMO, brushless can be more efficient and requires less maintenance. Rough summary that is...
