    Brushless motor kv

    What kv motor should i get for my summit ?
    I want a mamba monster x/sensored castle motor and theres 1800kv and 2200kv. Which one is better ? I like to bash but also crawl. If i understand correctly for the same gearing, the 2200 will but faster/hotter than the 1800. But does that mean you can more aggressively gear the more torquey 1800 ?

    I have never tried a 1800, but I do have the 2200 and I really like it.

    I have the sensored 2200kv which is a longer motor then the 1800kv. The longer 2200kv has more torque then the 1800.

    I have the 2200kv as well. I run 4s on 16/68 gearing and have never had a temp problem.
