Many of us do!
There are a lot of info on brushless motors in this forum. Do a search and you will find the info.
I have several BL motors and in my oppinion they are worth the money.

Brushless Motor users on this site?
BL Motors are becoming common place with racers. They are generally easier to use, offer higher power, longer life and cheaper to operate in the long run.
The important thing is prices have been coming down. With quality motors priced from around $95. it makes sense to look very hard at this option.

Are there special esc's that you have to use for brushless motors or can I just use my esc's from my r/c trucks and cars? We don't quite have the technology of brushless motors in truck and cars like you guys do in boats but they are starting to introduce a few but haven't heard much about them yet. Could I just take one of these boat brushless motors and put it in my truck w/ the same esc I use for motors w/ brushs?

You have to use a brushless speed control for brushless motors. As far as brushless in cars and trucks there are lots of people running that setup. Don, will have some motors and speed controls available soon for cars and trucks alike. BV
