Right but i'm looking to use the tekno clutch so the ,2050 would be better since the clutch bells don't go that high so I can gear it different/right

One of the main advantages, IMO, with ebuggies is not having to use a clutch. It's pretty much there on nitro buggies because the engine would stall without it. All a clutch will do is limit your punch which would be a detrement on high bite tracks where you 180 a turn an imediately hit a tripple after the apex and other such situations. If you have having problems with wheels spin, you can program that out.

As for the motor, 1900 is a great all-around point for racing. Great top end and loads of punch. Much more kv will not be useful on many tracks and will only make your electronics hotter and battery drain faster. I know people running up to 2200kv on 4S, but the guys winning are using 1700-1900.

Because it's a perfect compromise. As said the guys winning run 1700 and 1900kv but with a 1700kv yu'll have to gear it higher and could be near the temp limit on a big track on an hot day. I have a 1400kv 5S setup that reaches about the same rpm than a 1700 in 4S and I love this combination but I raced it on a very hot day and I'm sure my temps would have been cooler with a 1550kv lower geared. If you live in a place where it can get hot, go for a 1900 if you don't I would take the 1700 which is way enough power

Anyone tried a 540 4 pole size motor on their E-buggies?
