Just did a quick google search for your question,

Speed passion had a 11.5 turn/3600kv listed

Trinity had their Maxzilla 17.5turn/3600kv listed

That's a pretty good range in turns for sure. I would have said maybe somewhere between a 10.5 and 13.5, but after the search, I don't think I'd be 100% right.

Might help to provide more info on the motor you have, brand, what rtr it came with, etc.

Can't go only by kv rating, as torque is equally important as rpm in determining power. If the motor is a 4 pole for example the kv comparison can be misleading. Kv comparisons are most useful when comparing otherwise similar motors.

Its a leopard branded 3600kv. I am under the impression if you race 17.5 13.5 etc the kv rated motor has to be equivalent. It is in a 2wd buggy. Distributed through Racers Edge

Don't believe it is equivalent. A 13.5 or 17.5 class needs just that, a 13.5 or 17.5, that provides equivalence, or at least as close as is realistic while allowing a variety of manufacturers.

However, most any decent track will allow a new racer to get their feet wet with what they have, until they have a chance to get suitable equipment. Suggest a discussion with the race director, should be able to work something out.

Also ask around for the more experienced guys, I've loaned stuff out or sold usable items inexpensively many times to help someone out. I'm hardly the only one, seen it happen many times.
