After running both I can tell you the 1717 is the way to go, cooler temps and standing backflips. The 1515 2200 runs well, still lots of power but with the weight of the xxl once you have it hopped up needs more power. The 1717 1580kv out performs it's smaller brother, you can gear it up higher and still maintain safe electronic temps through out the full discharge of the 6s 5000mAh lipo. Due to better efficency, you can expect to see runtimes around the 30minute mark, sometimes a little longer but it depends on your gearing. You'll be best setting your MMM with around 75% punch control, you'll still be able to pop wheelies with easy but you'll have better control and it helps take a bit of stress from the drive train(diff's). This monster needs to be tamed.
Good luck, I know you'll love it, I do.

Milzee is right on the money, but I would add one more comment. It really depends upon what you plan to do. For example, if you plan on running on a track then the 1515 2200Kv is better than the 1717. The gearing will be lower, and the truck will be lighter. This creates lower temps. This is the setup I run, and I never have issues with temps. If you plan on bashing, and getting all of the aluminum upgrades then I would agree with Milzee. Also, if you do go 1717 then it really requires 6S. Keep that in mind. Lastly, if you go 1717 with 6S be prepared to upgrade your drivetrain. You will need HD diff cups and HD outdrive cups. The stock drivetrain cannot handle that power.

The 2200 does just fine in the XXL/LST2 and has PLENTY of power IMO , sure the 1717 will have more torque but as stated its MUCH heavier and needs 6s too really wake up .
