Default ESC/Motor combo

Hi all, I have a Losi 8B and the tekno conversion (4) I'm setting up for this season, would like some input on what speedo/motor brand you have ran with success and the least amount of problems. I will be running 4s packs, and will be staying in the 1700-1900kv range. any insight on the Team Orion Vortex 8 Race 1/8 Scale Brushless ESC/Motor Combo (4 Pole/1750kV)
or Tekin RX8/Redline T8 1/8th Scale Buggy Brushless ESC/Motor Combo (1900kV) and last but now least, the castle creation setup?
and the Speed Passion Silver Arrow V2.0 1/8th Scale Brushless ESC/Motor Combo (2200kV)

I appreciate all the help.

The Tekin 1900kv on 4S is real nice.

Yep and maybe for a bit more speed 2650 on 3s or even a 2050 on 3s geared up.

I prefer the Tekin 1700 for all around driving on my 8ight 2.0. If youre not going to run 5 or 6 cells, the SPX8 is a great speedo, small size, light weight, smooth power, great programming features. RX8 is great as well
