Hello again everyone. Just wanted to get some input on possibly sizing up on my motor maybe just some motor info in general. So here’s my situation. I just got my m2c wide chassis and m2c shock towers in the mail. I figured since I’m doing these upgrades, I’d like to get a little more power out of the truck while keeping temps pretty minimal. I have the hobbywing max8 2200kv combo on right now with an 18t pinion, car is a BEAST but seems to get a little warmer than id like. I was thinking of doing a long can setup and relocating the esc using the m2c included plate. Would I benefit from going with a long can motor, say a tp motor 4060? Should I go up in the kv or down in the kv? I understand how the kv and size of the motors work, but I’m still a little gone on how exactly they effect the power of the truck. I’ve seen people say that lower kv=more torque and Visa versa, but I’ve seen videos explaining how it’s the depth and number of windings on the spools that show the torque curve of the motors. Any input is much appreciated! Thank you!
