Gmade R1 - Brushed or brushless?

Hey all,

Gonna order a Gmade R1 kit and was wondering about peoples thoughts of brushed vs. brushless for this buggy. My LHS said to go brushed with a Ni-cd battery. Online it seems most people are running brushless with Lipo. I am looking at a Traxxass XL-5 ESC and Axial 27t motor. I would rather go brushless but the guy at LHS said I would not get enough torque with brushless. I would love to have the speed and upkeep of brushless not to mention the water resistance. This is not for any competition, just fun. But still want it to be capable.

Is there an advantage to brushed over brushless not counting the price? Would rather do it right the first time.

I plan on doing crawling but want to bash around as well on some awesome dirt and rock trails near my house.

Any help, as always, is greatly appreciated.
