amazing power and a motor I need for my PMono race boat
From my experience racing 1/8 buggies I'd prefer running lower kv motors and appropriate gearing for more torque and punch off the line and tackling corners and jumps. Higher kv yields higher speeds but less torque. And at the same time you would need to have a more powerful lipo battery which adds to your weight.
Now on an 1/8 on road if you are doing drags and not circuit racing super high gearing, large kv, and the biggest lipo you can fit by sticking/zip-tie/strap/velcro onto your chassis the better lol. Just make sure your tires can handle it and that your body doesn't get lifted up by the air flow.
