Default 1/8 GT2 motor recomondations for 6S


I am looking for motor alternatives for a 1/8 GT2 running on 6S. Preferably a 4 pole, 1800ish KV, sensored motor with 5mm shaft. ESC is a sensored XERUN 150A.

Used to run a Toro X8ST 2000Kv that was working well but it seized up and popped the end cap (not running too hot).

Have been googling around for some alternatives.

Within specs:
- Neu-Castle 1515 2200kv non sensored
- TP Power TP4040 sensored 5Y 1800 KV
- TP Power TP4050 sensored 7D 1850 KV
- Absima Revenge 2130040 1/8 1750 KV
- Nosram Fatboy 8 BL 1600kV
- XERUN-4274SL-Lite-2000KV 1/8
- Leopard LBP4282-2000KV
- Viper VSE 2050B 2 pole 2050KV
- Another Toro X8ST

Might work:
- Trinity D8 4 X 12 1750Kv - max 5S
- Tekin T8 G2 1700KV - max 5S
- Tenshock TS X-802 1850 KV - 6 pole

Will probably not work:
- Hacker SKALAR 8-V2 1900 BL-Motor sensored - max 4S
- Reedy Sonic 1512 1800 KV - max 4S
- Viper VF8 - max 4S
- Turnigy TrackStar 1/8th Sensored Brushless Motor 1900KV - max 4S
- Team Orion Vortex MR8 "Long" 4 Pole 1950 KV - max 4S
- Novak Ballistic 8 - max 4S

Most common set up for Value, Top Speed & wide open throttle bashing factor.
Castle Creation MM2 w/ 2200KV 6S non sensored "Striaght line run so don't matter so much"
Not recommened for Parking lot track racing since I cooked few motors
in too much heat from on & off throttle for 8 minutes.
Tekin's RX8 6S set up with T8-1550KV motor is way too slow
which is best for 4S use in real racing world.
