Default Is this a good combo for 1/8 e buggy?

I've heard good things about this esc, one of my top choices, I was gonna pair with a Tekin T8, but his combo is a great price $200. I was gonna go with a 1900kv motor, but the 2250kv is the only option. With coupons I can get the tekin combo for $265.

Thoughts?

hobbywing has 1800kv motor. model 4272. you can buy it direct from falconsekido.com for $197 for esc and motor. i use this esc/motor combo. more than enough power.

That motor is too long for my set up. I need a 4068 motor.

I ran the 4068 combo last year and it's really good. But to be honest for an extra $70 I would get the tekin with a 1900

Nothing wrong with that setup,plus it can be programmed trackside without having a laptop.I've been using HOBBYWING ESC for over a year with great luck.
