Tekin RX8 1900 or 1700 kv for ~330

Or I might be able to get a used Mamba 2200 kv system from a local for 200

What do you guys think?

Thank you all for your feedback.

I'm here at RC Tech because I'm new, and I want to learn from ENTHUSIASTS, not some guy at the LHS force feeding me something that gives him the highest profit margins.

When the experts cannot answer a tough question, they turn to the enthusiast...

well all i know if you spend your money on a tekin you will be very happy even if the rotor fails you can get one in three days so that isnt a problem...

well i have a 2050 which is super fast but to me i think its a good speed for racing...but ive seen a 1700 run and outruns a nitro with no contest...also it has enough power to jump any jump there is on a track...now the 1900 is an overall good motor...crazy fast but not to fast like a 2650 i drove a 1900 the other weekend and there is a slight difference between that and a 2050...we raced them down the straight and the 2050 beet it by .5 seconds..and it was a pretty good size straight
