Can anybody comment on this question, I've always thought that it's both, but you will get good power from brushed motors and lipo as well.

Brushless motors can maintain their level of power longer than brushed motors. With the longer mains the brushed motors heat up too much and the brushes and comm takes a beating and then start to fade. LiPo's as well maintain their voltage better and dont drop as fast as regular NiMH packs so it will have more power for longer.
