Hi,

I dont really understand about what is the difference between the on road motos and buggy ones.

Lets say a 3.5T has 9,800kv which is powerful and revvy.

On the other hand, the buggy one has 2200kv with something like star or pole or something. How can that be as powerful as a 3.5t with 3s-6s?

If you mean a buggy motor for a 1/8 buggy, they are designed to have more torque for the heavier weight of the car, so they don't rev as hard.
I believe that the 1/8 buggy motors also run off 3s lipo's etc, not 2s as typically used in on-road.

Are we talking about allvthe same size motors? Because for 540 motors, they are all pretty much the same. There are variations though like "high torque rotors" or "rpm stators"

Typically the 540 can size is rated in turns ie 3.5T. They do put a KV rating on it though. 1/10th scale aplications--typically a 2s battery

Now there is a 550 can with can be turn or KV rating--usually a 4x4 SCT

Then there are 1/8 motors that are rated in KV. Typically for most races it uses a 4s battery.

The bigger the can is typically needed due to the extra weight.
