Default New Motor for the TF2

Ok so I started out on my first trail rig with a sealed can motor from RC4wd, a 35T motor with a 2s 7.4v lipo batt. and a CC Sidewinder ESC. Now I truly don't know much about motors and motor choices other than what I've learned here, but I did quite a few searches to answer some of my questions. I still really don't know the difference between a sealed can motor and one with the bell housing on the back. I mean the 35T motor I have doesn't have much wheel speed at all and I see quite a few mentioning the Holmes Hobbies TourqueMaster series motors and how bad ass they are. Is there a big power diff. in the two motors? Do I have the wrong battery maybe? I'm interested in an upgrade for sure, but want to understand a bit more about how diff these motors are. I'm certainly looking for something that will give me more wheel speed as I'll be doing more moderate trailing and less crawling. Right now I'm stuck between a TorqueMasterPro 35T or 27T. I've been on the "Add to cart" page for about an hour now lol! Can anyone offer me some insight? Much appreciated!

Big difference between sealed cans and tekin or Holmes motors are they are rebuildable and have higher quality parts and will last a lot longer. The sealed cans are not rebuildable. You can get more wheel speed by running 3s, but remember to gear down to not wear out the motor.

Ah ok, so basically it's the fact that they can be rebuilt and are more durable. Makes sense. I didn't know about changing gear ratio though, thanks Bogncrawl.
