Default Losi 1/8 Xcelorin Brushless Motor (2400Kv)

Has anyone used this motor yet?
I have a Version 2 ESC and a 2100KV Xcelorin with a new Rotor Losi sent me but I want more power for my Truggy 2.0.
I have Mamba V3 2200KV Combo in my 8ight-E and it is heaps quicker then the Xcelorin set up.
I would rather go Xcelorin in my Truggy and keep Mamba in my Buggy so I would like to know if the 2400KV is as quick as the Mamba set up.

Cheers

Have you thought about more voltage to get more speed?

More voltage:
3s=11v
4s=14v
5s=18v
6s=22v

The higher the voltage the faster it will run but also the hotter it will run.

Yeah thought of that but I have 4s Losi batteries and I don't want to change my ESC settings everytime I use a different volt batteries.
I thought the Xcelorin 2400KV motor would be perfect for the Truggy 2.0 cause its a little larger and it wouldn't work so hard.

I think that's backwards. High KV ratings mean more RPMs and less torque. Although, with the typical gearing in a truggy, that may work for you. I'm running a 2200 Kv motor in my truggy, and it works VERY well.

So what your saying I should go a smaller KV rating for my 2.0 truggy which would make it quicker then my Mamba 2200KV buggy?

Well, put it this way. My truggy and buggy are pretty close in speed. The truggy has a 2200 kv and the buggy has a 2100 kv. Both are ballistic missiles, so if you're in that range, you "should" enjoy it.
