Default castle 1518, 1520, 1717 watt??

can anyone pls help me understand how powerful each of these 1/8 motor is?

I know 1717 is the most powerful one of the three, but by how much? or how much "torque" each motor has under the condition (ie voltage)

thank you in advance.

Not sure on numbers but, I have a 1518 1800KV in my truggy and it is way too much motor. I could have gone with the next smaller motor and still have it running cool.

I also have the 1518 1800kv motor in my truggy. The thing is a effin monster on 5s. TONS of torque. I really like it on 4s though.

Edit - What is the motor going in?
Tekno SCT410 - RX8 Gen 2 - Pro4 HD 4300kv - Savox 1256
