Which Mamba Motor?

I'm going to buy a Mamba Max motor and don't know whether to get the 5700, 7700, 4600, or 6900...

I'm buying it for my electric rustler, and want power, I was told to get the 5700, but i'm not sure, i need a 2nd opinion.

it depends on if you want all out speed or more torque.

the higher the KV the faster it will be but it will lose torque. i ran a 5700 in a 4wd car and it was plenty fast. it spools very quickly to make the big jumps with a short runup.

I plan to get the 5700 set since you can always get better batteries for speed if you have the money, and for the torque, 5700 is already let you wheelie easily from the videos I've seen.

5700 will make the most overall power, cells not being limited. the 7700 is the fastest at 6 cells.

For a 2wd truck, I probably would go as high as the 5700 only.
