Default Tekin RX8 Truggy Combo 1550kv VS. Castle Creations 1717 @ 1580kv?

Heya. I'm looking to convert my GST 7.7 to brushless, and as you all know this is a heavy beast. It's around 17lbs with nitro gear.

I'm looking for the most powerful motor that will deliver insane amounts of torque, and also work well on 6s with a Mamba Monster ESC, or perhaps another combo alltogether (Whatever works best.). My first choice is a Castle Creations 1717 @ 1580kv. The rest of the choices are:

Neu-Castle 1520/1Y @ 1600kv

Neu 1527/1.5D @ 1500kv

Neu 1521/1Y @ 1577kv

Or a Tekin RX8 Truggy combo. Most likely a 1550kv motor.

But which is most powerful, the 1717 @ 1580kv or the Tekin 1550kv? The reason I chose these 2 is because the 1717 is, supposedly, the most powerful motor out of all the other choices I have, except the 1527/1.5D obviously, but I think that motor is too amp thirsty for a Mamba on 6s.

Thanks in advance for any help or tips.

Any of those would work, but the Tekin motor will be a tad small and will probably run hot. Better off with the larger motors for a truck that heavy. A 1520-21 sized can should be enough.
