A brand-spanking new stock motor which has not had the bushings broken in
has a great deal of friction in it, which may be enough to notice.
You may also have different brushes/springs in the motors, which may be
the cause of a performance difference.
The bearing drag from the drivetrain is neglagable.
I've been told the Reedy motor turns more RPM than the Midnight, and the
Midnight has more torque.
