On the other hand, the buggy one has 2200kv with something like star or pole or something. How can that be as powerful as a 3.5t with 3s-6s?
Typically the 540 can size is rated in turns ie 3.5T. They do put a KV rating on it though. 1/10th scale aplications--typically a 2s battery
Now there is a 550 can with can be turn or KV rating--usually a 4x4 SCT
Then there are 1/8 motors that are rated in KV. Typically for most races it uses a 4s battery.
The bigger the can is typically needed due to the extra weight.
